Kia Ora, my name is Abby Cavanagh and I am really excited to be teaching Year 8 students this year, after teaching Year 7’s for the past few years. 

I was born and raised on the North Shore in Auckland and I still live there. They say that once you live on the shore, you never leave! I absolutely love the beach and the ocean and living right next to it is an absolute blessing. I am newly engaged to my wonderful fiance, Daniel. I am very passionate about family and have two gorgeous nieces (Rosie and Alyssa) and a handsome young nephew (Beau). My mother lives in Queenstown, so you will often hear about my travels down to the deep south. A truly beautiful place to visit and spend my holidays. 

Education runs in my family. I am enthusiastic about opening up young minds to the world around them. Helping them to see information in a new light. I encourage students to foster a growth mindset and work hard to achieve their goals and aspirations.

I am really looking forward to being a part of the Rimu Team in 2021.
