I am the proud ESOL teacher here at ANI and I have been teaching at this wonderful school for the past 2 years. I really enjoy helping to enable students to learn from attending extracurricular activities and trips. Last year I helped to organise ESOL trips to the Auckland Art Museum and the Auckland Maritime Museum. I also really enjoy supporting sports within the school and I supported table tennis competitions here last year. I believe that students learn from experiencing new and exciting things and ANI is an incredible place, with many opportunities for young people to learn in this fascinating environment.
I feel very lucky to have moved to New Zealand in February 2020, right before the global pandemic. I love my new home and feel very welcome here.
I was born in Ireland, and before I moved to NZ I spent the last 8 years teaching Geography and Psychology in secondary schools in London. I have plenty of experience working with students to improve their literacy skills in particular, in East London.
I love to explore new places, cultures and languages and I have visited many countries in South America, Europe and Asia.
Another passion of mine is collecting vinyl records of a wide variety of different genres. During weekends and in the school holidays I can be found DJing at some local venues in Tāmaki Makaurau.
I look forward to 2022 and getting to know you all this year!
