Kia Ora! I am blessed to be joining the ANI team this year. I returned to Aotearoa at the end of 2021 after venturing to the U.K. for 4 years teaching Year 6 pupils. I loved my time abroad as I was fortunate enough to travel to many parts of the world while meeting new people along the way. Prior to living in London, I taught in a primary setting for 4 years then returned to the University of Auckland to complete my Master of Education. I am passionately committed to promoting a positive, fun and nurturing learning environment where students can achieve personal growth and excellence.

When I am not teaching, I love to be outdoors going for a walk, hike or trying out something new; I love being out of my comfort zone and finding new interests and hobbies. I also enjoy mindfulness practice at home and endeavor to include this in the classroom. In addition to English, I also speak Cantonese and Mandarin. I am excited for the year ahead with Room 20 and look forward to unlocking the brilliant child that’s inside every student.
