My Profile

Kia Ora!!!

I am Wendy Russell and I currently teach a junior class at Wonderful Warrington School

Professional Background

Karitane Beach.jpg
From an early age of 7, I always wanted to be a primary teacher! My teaching career began in 2002 after completing a 3 year Bachelor of Education majoring in physical education at the Dunedin College of Education. In my first year of teaching, I worked in a class four days a week at Warrington School with a multi-level class ranging from year 4 - 8. I found this very stimulating and I learnt lots about myself and teaching in this time. Following this I attained a permanent position teaching in a lovely year 1 - 2 class.


  • Four years secondary school -Queens' High School
  • One year as an adult student - East Otago High School
  • Three years at Dunedin College of Education -Degree

My Interests

Definitely my children and supporting them with their sport, coaching and managing teams etc. Weekends are filled with hockey, cricket, athletics and walking along beautiful Karitane Beach and smelling the beautiful salt air! My husband is a Fisherman and day fishes out of Karitane catching crayfish, blue-cod and various other fish.


My areas of responsibilities and interest are:

  • Junior Literacy
  • Physical Education
  • Visual Arts
  • Bus Controller
  • Staff Representative on the Board of Trustees
  • Sports Co-ordinator


I am Wendy, I am a wife, a mother of two children,Alisya and Kane and an enthusiastic teacher who teaches a wonderful group of year 1 and 2 children.
