First Deputy Principal
I have three awesome children - all were students at Western Heights and all have wonderful memories of their time spent here.
I have been teaching in West Auckland for 30 years at all levels from Years 0 - 8. In the last 15 years, my practice has centred around the early years of education and I am passionate about providing children the best possible start to their journey of learning at school and beyond. We focus on building relationships with local pre-school providers and all parents to ensure a smooth, stress-free transition to school.

Hi I'm Teresa and I am extremely excited to be joining the Western Heights team in 2018. I am currently in my fifth year at Titirangi Primary School where my roles include, year 6 team leader, sports coordinator and Community of Learning lead teacher.
Previous to this role, I taught year 8 at Glen Eden Intermediate where I also set up the radio station TNT. I've worked overseas in Korea for six months and Bangkok for three and a half years at an International school right by the river. Previous to this I taught across a wide range of year levels at Ohinewai Primary School in Huntly.
I am married and have a daughter, Chloe, who will be joining me at Western Heights. She is also extremely excited about her new school and I cannot wait for her to experience all of the opportunities Western Heights has to offer.
