ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL/ROOM 12 Teacher
Kia ora, my name is Christine Abercrombie and I am the Assistant Principal as well as one of the Strategic Leaders at Pasadena (Team Leader of Kahurangi) and am the classroom teacher of Room 12. I have over 10 years of teaching experience, teaching students across a range of age groups. However, I especially enjoy working with intermediate students as they become more independent and take responsibility for their learning. This year will present new experiences, challenges, fun and multiple opportunities for the students to take part in a variety of activities. Nurturing the students throughout their two years at Pasadena and watching them experience many successes, is what makes coming to work each day so much fun. I have completed my postgraduate diploma in Advanced Teaching, Learning and Motivation (with a focus on Mathematics) and have trained as a Reading Recovery teacher. In my spare time, you will find me reading a book on the beach or enjoying a BBQ with family/friends. I look forward to meeting many of the students and their families over the coming weeks and am excited about the year ahead.
