Mary Smith – Reading Recovery

I have taught in many schools in the eastern suburbs of Wellington in a variety of roles. I am Reading Recovery trained.  I enjoy sharing Harakeke with Jill and teaching literacy is my passion. The progress children make in their first two years at school is truly amazing. HVS is a great school to teach in with its special environment. Hard to believe it was once a landfill that I used to visit many decades ago!

I am married with 3 adult children, and 1 grandchild. At present we all live and work in Wellington. My husband and I love living in the eastern suburbs, and enjoy the changes that have taken place over the last couple of decades, making it a vibrant and popular part of Wellington.

My other passion is travel. We have been to Europe quite a few times over the past ten years while children were living in London. More recently we have had several holidays in Hawaii to support our daughter Natalie at the Ironman World Championships in Kona. Natalie recently won her age group in Taupo which means another trip to Kona is a possibility.

As a teacher, I enjoy collaborating with my colleagues to deliver the best possible programme to the children.
