New to Nayland maths teacher Deborah O’Dell was born on the North Shore of Auckland and grew up in a house there before the Harbour Bridge was built.
While Nayland has seen a number of new teachers make the move down from Auckland, Anna Playford and her family have joined us from another direction: Sydney, Australia.
Half-Kiwi, half-Spanish, and whole-heartedly passionate, new Spanish teacher Cristina Armstrong is set to teach here at Nayland for at least the next two terms.
Science teacher Maria van den Berg brings much experience and knowledge to her role, as she joins the staff at Nayland College this term.
Hilary Hurst loves a challenge, whether that be a difficult student, or navigating her way through harsh rapids. Mrs. Hurst enjoys teaching science, but she also seeks a “low key” adrenaline rush time to time.
Though she may think otherwise, science teacher Dr Dean has lead an interesting life, to say the least.
