My name is Renee Paterson, and I am a Teacher Aide at ANI.  This will be my first year at ANI and I am very excited to be a part of the team. I have just finished my degree at the University of Auckland, studying Sport, Health and physical education. I am hoping to do my teaching degree in the next few years and become a qualified teacher. In my free time I enjoy swimming, soccer, being in the outdoors and spending time with my family/friends. I am excited for this year being a teacher aide to learn and develop as an individual and to try new things that I have never experienced before. I’m looking forward to what this year holds. I am excited about working alongside the talented young people that attend ANI.
