My name is Andy Lawrence and I am the eager teacher in Room 27.  Additionally, I am one of ANI’s Across School Leaders, working with several schools in our community to develop the wellbeing of staff and students.  I have taught both Year 7 and Year 8, and am now entering my seventh year at ANI.  I love teaching intermediate age students and seeing their development over the two years, becoming confident and capable young people.

In my spare time, I love watching films and listening to and making music, as an expressive outlet.  I am an avid reader and writer, something I wish to pass onto my students.  I love the outdoors and being in nature, as well as spending time with my friends and family, particularly my wife and daughter.

I am committed to being the best I can be, with a desire to model open mindedness and risk taking to those around me.  Being incredibly social, I am looking forward to connecting with my students and school community this year, and I am beyond excited for what is in store for those young people new to ANI – there’s a lot on offer!
