Hi there! I am the Principal of Rotherham School.  I am passionate about the learning of our tamariki and ensuring that we are providing the best possible education where they will become life long learners. I have been teaching for over 20 years and am very excited to be part of the "best little school in North Canterbury".
I have moved from Christchurch and now live in Hanmer Springs. I have a grown up daughter who still lives in Christchurch and a large family most of whom live in Christchurch too. Glad to be part of the Rotherham whanau as of 2020. Come in

I started teaching at Rotherham School in 2017 after returning from the UK to live on the family farm.  I enjoy the close community feel of Rotherham School and all the great opportunities the area has to offer.

Outside of teaching I enjoy travel, outdoor adventures and family time.

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.
