Kia ora, I trained as a Kindergarten teacher in 1971 and 72, and I have since been involved with the Early Childhood sector, married, had a family of three, and then returned to full-time teaching since moving to Tauranga where we have lived now for 15 years.
I have enjoyed working in both home based childcares as a visiting teacher and in day care centres, and find working with children fascinating and interesting. There is so much more information and knowledge available which supports care of children and I have developed a passion for learning more about how children learn and what they have to teach us.
At home I relax in my love of gardening and enjoy my family and grandchildren. I believe I am rich with a life of faith, family and my work!
