Tena koutou katoa

I have worked at Bream Bay College since 2008, and I teach junior and senior English. I have now been appointed as Ross Dean for 2016, which is an exciting prospect and I look forward to working with both staff and students in this house. I am committed to the success of our students, both in and out of class. The skills they acquire in school will prepare them for many opportunities in life. It is my goal to improve student achievement with quality instruction that encourages children who can influence the future.

Amanda Nearing - Dean of Inverness

I am excited to be working with Mr. Mark Bayer and our amazing team of whaanau teachers. This is my third year here and I am also a Year 8 homeroom teacher and a Year 7 Digital Technology teacher. My teaching practice and deanship is grounded within the beliefs of a holistic learning approach.  As quoted from W.E.B Du Bois, "Education must not simply teach work-it must teach Life." I love working and building relationships with our young people and seeing them grow. Being from Canada, I have been overwhelmed with how welcoming everyone has been in the community. I look forward to another year at Bream Bay College and the opportunity to teach within our beautiful region.
