Personal statement

I live in Geraldine, South Canterbury with my husband, Mark, who is also a teacher. We came here 24 years ago when our children were pre-schoolers. They are both adults now with one living in Christchurch and the other currently in the UK. I enjoy walking and gardening, singing and choreography, and learning new IT skills. I feel very fortunate to have the flexibility that working from home offers, while at the same time having the opportunity to meet interesting and inspiring educators working in a variety of different contexts and locations.
