Kia Ora! Hello! My name is Sam Carruthers and I teach Year 8 in Room 13 and I feel very lucky to be a part of Rimu team. I have 7 years experience in teaching: 4 years in Birmingham and 3 years in London. During my time teaching, I have had the privilege to be in leadership positions and to lead sports teams. I love teaching and thoroughly enjoy being in the classroom.
I was born in Norwich, UK and raised in Birmingham, before going back to Norwich for my undergrad in Modern History. Once that was completed, I moved back to Birmingham to do my teaching qualification and started teaching straight after that.
I moved to New Zealand in July 2022, and I love the outdoor lifestyle and focus on sports. When I am not at school, I enjoy cooking, walking, running and exploring this wonderful country! I am looking forward to getting to know the community, the city and the country much better, so please come and say hi!
