Kia ora, I'm Katie and I'm from Ōtautahi Christchurch. I'm passionate about environmental sustainability, bi-cultural worldviews and civics. I've worked in education for the past fifteen years; teaching locally from South Auckland to inner-city London, to the wilds of East Africa. Before having the privilege of designing LEOTC programmes for Local Government, working alongside iwi. 

More recently, I've been teaching at my One-Day School connecting children to the bush and farm during the NZ spring and summers. In the NZ winters, you can find me designing and delivering environmental sustainability Curriculum at the University of Alaska. 

When I'm not living the dream job, I can be found in my garden, being in the great outdoors, foraging food or being with family or friends. I'm excited to be part of the VLN Primary School Team and look forward to bringing sustainability to you, through online teaching!

Mā te wā, until then, Katie :-)
