Stephanie Whyte - Bilingual Class

I am Stephanie Whyte. I have been a teacher for a long time in a range of roles and schools. I am an Eastern Southlander originally from Otama, where my mother and younger brother and his family still live on the family farm. I have lived away from here for most of my adult life. I recently followed first my daughter, then my husband and son back to Southland from Northland, and feel very blessed to have landed this teaching role at such a lovely school. I am one of the Reading Recovery teachers - a real passion of mine - as well as helping with reading and writing in the English language in our bilingual classroom, and working with two special needs funded students. I currently commute from Wallacetown.
