Kia ora,

I am Miss Wind and I’m the lucky teacher of room 7. Our class belongs in Team Te Aroha.  This is now my fourth year here at Berkley and I am loving every minute of it!

I originate from a farming family where I grew up on sheep and beef farms throughout Waikato. My parents, my brother and his family now live in the Taumarunui area where I love to visit as much as I can to soak up the farm life and spend quality time with my nieces and nephew. I attended Southwell School from year 6 as a boarder, onto Waikato Diocesan School for Girls for high school and then finally, went to Waikato university where I studied both Psychology and Primary Teaching.

I currently live in Matamata and enjoy the scenic drive to work every morning. When I am not working I love to paint and will also often have my head in a good book. I am definitely not shy of a trip to the mountain for a snowboard or a game of tennis in the summertime.

I believe life is what you make of it and Berkley’s motto of “Take Up The Challenge'' really resonates with me as I love to support my learners to take up all opportunities that come their way no matter how big or small. Achievement comes in many areas of a students life and Berkley sure helps provide the opportunities for students to achieve.
