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.
