National Diploma Public Relations, Post Graduate Certificate in Education (Primary School).
I am originally from South Africa and moved to New Zealand last year (2021). I originally studied Public Relations and worked for a Multichoice Television Channel doing their PR. My husband and I moved to London in 2000 and lived there for 7 years where I had two of my three children. I worked in finance for an American Investment Bank until we moved back to SA in 2007. I then had our third child and decided to change careers. The owner of the school where my son and daughter were enrolled started a Social Skills program and I ran it for 13 years. I fell in love with seeing how children grow with guidance and love, resulting in me doing a postgrad in Primary Education.
I currently work in collaboration with Mr. Bartlett in Room 8 and I'm training to be a reading recovery teacher. I really enjoy seeing progress, understanding, and building trust with students. I love being a part of the two teams I'm currently with. In a short space of time, they have taught me so much!
I feel blessed and privileged to be chosen to join the talented team at Horizon. I agree with my colleagues there is an incredible feeling of love and support at this beautiful school and it is truly a very special place.
