Charné Wood - Teacher


Charné is from South Africa. She is a qualified ECE teacher with a level 7 Bachelors degree in Early Childhood. In the 8 years that she has been working with children she has taught many different age groups ranging from ECE to Primary level. She started with New Shoots, Hamilton in September 2017 as a reliever and became permanent in February 2018.

“I am fun, creative and energetic. My home languages are English and Afrikaans. I was a pre-school teacher in South Africa and I have been in New Zealand since August 2017. My husband and I immigrated to New Zealand as a safe place to start a family. We are expecting our first child in October 2018. I absolutely love working with children and find teaching to be such a rewarding role. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and creativity with the learners and teaching them to develop into the best versions of themselves. Outside of work I love playing sports, cooking, baking, going for walks, fishing, swimming, shopping and listening to music.”
