Hi, my name is Terri,

I first came to Rhode Street School in 2010 to work as a teacher aide. I was here for 4 years in this capacity then moved to another school in the Waikato for a few years. I came back to Rhode Street in 2018 to teacher aide again, specialising in behavioural needs of students.

This year I have changed roles and now work at the breakfast club, making the school lunches and after school care and holiday programs.

I have three children and my first grandchild was born at the end of last year. In my spare time I enjoy gardening, crafting and spending time with my family.

Nga mihi

Whaea Terri
