I am a primary teacher in New Zealand. I have taught for almost 20 years mostly in the junior school Years 1-3 (5-8 year olds). My expertise is in the core subjects in the foundation years. I run a very tight programme with my 5 and 6 year olds which includes research based activities to improve executive function, phonological awareness, alphabet knowledge, literacy and numeracy.
My focus is on progress for every child. I believe every child can learn. I focus a lot of time getting to know my target students and using inquiry teaching to find out what works to help them learn.
Yet to be added
Ever since I can remember, I had my dolls, my teddy bears and even my little brothers lined up to play schools. I completed my Teaching Diploma in 1999 then finished my Bachelor in Education in 2007.
Job #1 I am a mum of two boys. Job #2 I am an Assistant Principal/ Junior Team Leader. I love my two jobs- they are both dear to my heart.
