Kia Ora and Namasthe! My Name is Alby Jose, and I am excited to be with Year 8 students this year. From India, I moved to New Zealand in 2018 for new experiences. I completed my Master of Arts and Bachelor of Education in India, where I started my career as a teacher. I have worked as a reliever in ANI for the last two years and am delighted to be a part of this inspiring team. I believe in creating a classroom culture where students feel safe, happy and productive to become lifelong learners. Creating engaging learning environments along with building solid positive relationships are always important.

In my spare time, I love being with my family (husband and two children) and enjoy cooking, reading, watching Netflix series and exploring new places with friends.

I always appreciate open-mindedness, risk-taking and grabbing opportunities, and I look forward to what we achieve together this year.
