Hi there! I am the Principal of Rotherham School.  I believe that we offer students a brilliant start to their journey of life long learning. I have been a Principal at Rotherham School since 2010 and always enjoy my time teaching in the classroom as well as the other valued aspects which involve interacting with other students, the staff, parents and the community.
I live in the Rotherham community on a farm very close to the river with my husband and three teenage daughters.  We enjoy horses and other outdoor activities such as fishing and camping.  In my spare time I like to relax reading and I enjoy gardening.

I started teaching at Rotherham in 2013 after teaching at Rangiora Borough School.  Rotherham School is a lovely small country school with a fantastic, positive atmostphere. 

Outside of school I enjoy playing netball, running, sleeping and jet boating. I live on a sheep, beef and deer farm in the area and enjoy getting outdoors.

I have been teaching at Rotherham School since 2004 and enjoy teaching at "the best little school in North Canterbury" because there is so much family and community involvement.  

I live on a farm in Waiau along with my husband, daughter and son.  I enjoy skiing as I live close to Mt Lyford and getting out and about on our hill country farm.  I enjoy reading, cooking, exercising and spending time with my children.

I really enjoy working as office administrator in such a friendly welcoming school.  I work in the office four days a week Monday to Thursdays.  Each day it is great to interact with such cheerful, polite and happy children.

My work is varied which I enjoy.  I have been associated with the local community for many years.  I have two grown-up daughters and two grand daughters.

My interests include golf, gardening, reading and travel when time permits.
