I am a beginning teacher at a primary school. I have been employed as a classroom teacher since February 2017. I teach year 3 and 4 children, 7 to 9 year olds. I completed a Bachelor of Arts Education Major and History Minor in 2015. I also have a Graduate Diploma in Teaching (Primary) which I gained in 2016. I teach in a small rural town, Ashhurst, in the North Island of New Zealand. M y interests are in using science activities as a way of engaging students in quality writing experiences. I am an avid sports fan and help coach a Cricket and Rugby team at my school as well as helping co-ordinate the Chess Club and Glee Club.
