Kia ora my name is Emily Campbell and I am a student teacher here at Otumoetai Primary school. I am currently studying through Waikato University, completing my Postgraduate Diploma in Primary Teaching. Prior to this I gained a Bachelor of Sport and Recreation through AUT. I am a volunteer lifeguard for the Mount Maunganui Surf Club and I also enjoy playing Hockey in my spare time. I am looking forward to spending the next three terms with Otumoetai Primary School to develop my skills as a future teacher.

Vincent Lyon

Ni hao, my name is Vincent Lyon and I am currently training to become a primary teacher through Waikato University. Before this, I taught English as a second language for a decade in China. There I met my wife and we returned to my home town of Tauranga with our young son and daughter. Here we hope to build a new life and make the most of what this unique country has on offer. Such as a childhood-held love for the outdoors, in particular kayaking, hiking and camping. Besides these, I am given to exploration in visual arts, writing and film-making. So, I’m very pleased to have the opportunity to further the art of teaching here, and work with some truly inspirational young minds.
