Kerrilee Wright - Teacher


After completing her Bachelor in Early Childhood Education in 2014, Kerrilee took on a reliever role at New Shoots. She’s now a full time teacher in the Rimu Room.

“Being a part of little people’s lives and helping them grow into amazing big people is a true honour and privilege. I know I am making a difference to their lives. I’m also passionate about supporting our kaiako to be the best they can be through professional mentoring and guidance.

I’m the mother of three beautiful children and was involved with Playcentre and Kindergarten while they were growing up. Later, during their primary years I coached sports teams, ranging from football to netball and flippaball. I’ve also been a Porse home educator.”

Kerrilee is passionate about books and always has one on the go. She plays football for Wanderers Football club, cycles, attends a local gym for boxing classes and supports her children, nieces and nephews whenever they need her.
