Sheree joined Scots College in January 2019 as an experienced IB MYP and Diploma Mathematics and Digital Technologies teacher and IB workshop leader.  Previously Sheree was a Head of House, Microsoft Innovative Educator and innovative practice coach at Immanuel College in Adelaide Australia where she worked with the Independent Schools Association to trial and document the use of a Nao humanoid robot in mathematics, language learning, pastoral care and in code club. With 18 years’ experience teaching in IB International Schools Sheree became an IB school authorisation team visitor in 2015, working with schools and teachers and supporting them in their MYP journeys. 

As a Head of House Sheree introduced a vertical teams structure for pastoral care and developed a student-led community service programme, providing leadership opportunities and a sense of community for students at all Year Levels. Sheree brings considerable pastoral and academic expertise to the school along with a passion for the use of innovative technologies to enable students to develop their critical and creative thinking and become the problem solvers that our world truly needs.

Having worked in multimedia development and information technology at Waikato University along with her international experience Sheree also has an understanding of national, international and overseas qualifications. She is well-placed to equip students for future study and has experience in preparing and placing students in top international universities including Oxford, Cambridge and Johns Hopkins in the United States. 

Sheree believes that passion for teaching learning and genuine concern for the welfare of the students lie at the heart of successful schooling. Sheree’s iwi is Kai Tahu and her hapu is Kāti Māmoe and she has strong ties to her cultural heritage but also sees herself very much as a global citizen. Outside the classroom you will find her enjoying her family, visiting her three young grandsons, watching movies, gardening, reading and working on her master’s degree.
