I am passionate about oral communication and believe that every student in New Zealand should have the opportunity to explore and develop their oral literacy.
I am an advocate for Speech and Drama and credit my own lessons from age eight as the reason why I am able to collaborate and communicate with confidence today.
I am a New Zealand registered Secondary School Teacher specialising in English and Drama. I hold a Bachelor of Arts double major in English and Drama, an Advanced Associate of Speech and Drama Teaching (Adv ASB), and for eight years I held a role as Trustee on the Board for Speech New Zealand. I have many years of experience teaching drama and public speaking as extra-curricular activities and have taught speech and drama privately to students in both Rotorua and Auckland previously.
I am looking forward to developing ‘With Confidence’, so that students of all ages can have the opportunity to build their confidence and skill in public speaking and drama performance.
