Kia ora, my name is Yana and I am a classroom teacher in Room 2. This is my second year teaching at Berkley, previously teaching overseas in London. and at Te Pahu School. In days gone by, I worked as a Kiwisport coach in North Canterbury.

I hail from the winterless north, but spent most of my childhood in Auckland. For my final year of school, I ventured south to Wanaka to attend Mt Aspiring College, which is where my love for outdoor adventures started. I went on to study sport science in Christchurch, followed by working as a kiwi sport coach. This is where my passion for working with tamariki started, and I ventured into the extremely rewarding job that is teaching.

After a bit of travel and work overseas, my journey continued to the mighty Waikato, where I now live with my husband on his family farm. I feel very lucky to be a teacher here at Berkley and feel privileged to work every day with our inspiring and driven students.
