Selina Striebich

Room 9

Guten Tag and hello, my name is Selina Striebich, and I am thrilled to be joining the Rimu team this year. I grew up in Southern Germany and moved to beautiful Aotearoa in December 2022 – I am still incredibly grateful to be here! I graduated with my Master of Arts and a State Examination in 2015 and have been teaching years 5 to 10 in both Germany and Bolivia. To me, teaching is about exciting the students with knowledge, to guide them to find their own way and grow into strong and open-minded adults. Building a relationship with my students is important to me as learning always requires a safe atmosphere and trust. I will be teaching in room 9 and can’t wait to get to know the tamariki. In my free time, I enjoy doing Zumba or reading a good book at the beach – any recommendations are welcome! Skiing and exploring the world, especially New Zealand, are also a passion of mine. I recently got into scuba diving, so if you can’t find me, just follow the bubbles… I am looking forward to a great year!
