The 2022 team at Dalefield School
Hi, my name is Shannon and I have been a teacher aide here at Dalefield for the last four years. I also have a child here at Dalefield who will complete her nearly eight years here at the end of 2022. I enjoy cooking and spending time with my family.
I have been teaching at Dalefield School since 2018. Over the past 4 years I have job shared, until recently transitioning into my own New Entrant class named 'Whetū.' We moved to the Wairarapa in 2015. I have 2 children of my own. My daughter is a competitive swimmer and my son is a keen sportsman. I enjoy tramping and have been lucky enough to walk various tracks in the South Island.

A Carterton local where I live with my family, I hope to bring a sense of fun and enthusiasm to learning

Kia Ora, I have been the Deputy Principal here at Dalefield School for 3 years. I teach in Mangaterere with students from years 3-5. I was born and bred in the lovely Wairarapa. I have 4 children of my own and enjoy all kinds of sports and outdoor activities.
I have been at Dalefield school now for 11 years. I have 3 children and my interests are all kind of sports. I still play Hockey in winter and really enjoy going on bush walks. I love my job and meeting new families when they come to school.
