Talofa, Mauri, Mālō e lelei and Kia Ora!

I have lived all over the Pacific including Kiribati, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Fiji and Samoa. I was schooled in Australia before moving to New Zealand and then spent six years back in Samoa with my husband and two children before moving back to New Zealand in 2012. I gained my Teaching Degree from the University of Auckland in 2018. Next year I will have been with the Glenbrook School community for 3 years! My daughter Selina and son Malek are also here at Glenbrook School and are flourishing in the country environment. 2021 will be an exciting time and I am looking forward to the new adventure ahead in Uenuku. I am very excited to be moving into our new classroom next year and teaching alongside Mrs McCulloch and Mrs Waitai.

Kia ora Koutou

I have a long history with the Franklin area. I was born in Waiuku and grew up in rural Pukekohe where I attended Pukekohe High School. After training at Ardmore Teachers’ College I taught with my late husband in many places in New Zealand. I was a teaching principal for ten years at a small rural school on the outskirts of Tauranga before moving back to the Pukekohe area.

I have a daughter, son and grandchildren who I enjoy travelling, cycling, reading, going to the beach and following many sports (especially netball) with.
