I/C 2 & Nursery Head Teacher

Hi, my name is Rachael and I have been teaching in the Early Childhood sector for the past twelve years.  I graduated from the University of Canterbury in 2010 with a Bachelor Degree in Teaching and Learning.

Over the past twelve years I have taught children from new entrant level right down to nursery age.  I enjoy the diversity that our New Zealand culture brings, as it brings uniqueness and individuality to each child and I am learning from them as well.

I stepped up to the role of Head Teacher 5 years ago and am really enjoying the extra responsibilities that this role brings and that I can help mentor the teachers that I work with.

When I'm not at preschool, I have two beautiful grown up daughters and a very busy grandson who all live with me, including a dog, a cat, two guinea pigs and a number of tropical fish.  A very full house indeed!  In my spare time I am a book work so I like to curl up with a good book and watch a movie.
