I've been working at Martinborough School since 2017 where I've taught students from year 5 through to year 8. 

Before this, I was living in Sydney where I trained as a PE teacher before securing a job as a primary school teacher.

I love living in the Wairarapa and showcasing all the sites and activities when family and friends come to visit. 

As a teacher I know that 'success' means something different to every student, and I try to provide them with a variety of opportunities to be successful. My learning program involves a lot of STEAM (science, technology, english, arts, maths) and hands on problem based activities that give students the chance to work in groups and to 'think outside the box'.
