I am currently teacher year 5 and 6 students in the brand new Rimu classroom. I am very excited to be a new member of Houghton Valley School and looking forward to the year ahead. I am part of the PB4L team this year and the leader for Mathematics. I am looking forward to running the school choir this year.

It is hard to pick just one thing I love about being a teacher but if I had to pick one it would be helping students to become lifelong learners, who are able to manage themselves and make positive decisions.


I have recently moved back to Wellington after a 2-year stint down there teaching and being close to my family. I have a background in Musical theatre and in my spare time I love to sing. I am an active person who spends most morning before school at the gym and on the weekend out for walks around Wellington city. I try and get back home to Nelson when I have a free weekend to visit my beautiful 3-year-old niece, big sister and brother in law.
