Kia Ora, my name is Nick Houston and I am excited to return as a year 8 teacher. I graduated with my Bachelor of Education in 2020 and took over a Year 8 class at ANI for terms 3 & 4. The year taught me many lessons that I look forward to putting into practice with Room 15. 

I was born and raised in Mount Albert, Auckland with most of my family living close. I have studied on and off over the years to become a teacher whilst balancing sport and other commitments. Outside of the classroom I enjoy being active and spending lots of my time around the water. I am a passionate drummer and enjoy exploring different areas of music.

As a teacher I prioritize giving students the tools to be able to deal with whatever life has to offer. I promote to students to question the world around them and bring their knowledge and experiences to promote their curiosity. A focus this year which I want to build on is preparing our students for the exciting challenges they will face going to highschool and beyond. I hope to build a positive class culture to add to our ANI Whānau.
