Roisin Smyth

Teacher Aide

Kia Ora ! My name is Roisin Smyth and I am excited to see what the ANI team has in store for the 2024 year!

I moved to New Zealand from Ireland in 2022 and I love experiencing the different cultures and traditions in a New Zealand school. I am working as a full-time Teacher Aide this year and can’t wait to see what’s in store.

I studied a four-year degree in Ireland in Early Childhood Care and Education – working with children up to 7 years old. I am hoping to become a primary school teacher so my experience in ANI with older students will certainly shape the way I teach in the future. I am really passionate about working with students, and helping them in whatever way they may need.

Back in Ireland – I grew up in the countryside, where I loved spending time with friends, family and of course my dog Holly. Since moving to New Zealand, while my family interactions have all been through FaceTime, I have certainly made a lot of friends who have become my NZ Whānau!
