About Me

Kia ora koutou, It's an absolute privilege to be Principal at Wilson School, working alongside such a passionate and dedicated team. The school prides itself on having a long history of supporting students to achieve their full potential. I joined the Wilson team part way through 2020, I have a background of supporting students with a range of needs and have leadership experience from special schools in New Zealand and the UK. I originally trained as a Primary teacher before moving into Special Education, initially specialising in working with children with Autism within highly structured learning environments. I really value the opportunities that specialist education can provide for our students, linking together teaching and therapy to provide a holistic approach.

About Me

I taught in a variety of educational settings before joining Wilson School. It is here I have found my passion for Special Education. I taught various classes within Wilson School before joining the Senior Leaders Team. I really enjoy working collaboratively to support staff, students and families. When not at school you will find me having family time with my mokopuna or having a relaxing walk on the beach or a bike ride.
