|Employer:||Albany Senior High School|
I teach mathematics at Albany Senior High School on Auckland's North Shore. I teach Level 1 and Level 2 mathematics (we don't have Level 3 yet) and prefer statistics over calculus.
I taught initially in the early-mid nineties in Kaikoura and relief taught in the Bay of Plenty and then travelled extensively through Europe, Africa and Canada. I then returned to university and got an honours degree in law. I practised law for 5 years but the pull of the classroom was too much and I returned to secondary school teaching to take up a position of mathematics teacher at Albany Senior High School - New Zealand's first state senior secondary school.
