M.Ed.L. (Distinction) B.Ed, Diploma of Teaching, NZDSM
After growing up in Mangere and working in horticulture, truck driving and security work I decided to become a teacher. Along the way I served for 7 years in the NZ Army and worked in a number of South Auckland schools before arriving at Valley. My four children are all past pupils of Valley School, one has completed an apprenticeships, one is currently in an apprenticeship, one is at University and one is a Year 13 pupil at Pukekohe High School. My wife and I are very proud grandparents. I am a passionate believer in how great kids can be and how every child deserves the chance to shine for who they are.
