Alina Klimovich - Teacher


Three years ago, Alina and her family (her husband and two boys aged six and eight) arrived in New Zealand from Russia.

“I completed a Bachelor's Degree in Secondary School Teaching in my home country and worked in different secondary schools teaching foreign languages for five years. When I arrived in New Zealand I started a home-based childcare with Barnardo’s. It was a very good experience but I wanted to grow professionally, so I applied to work in New Shoots. 

I love being part of a learning and growing journey for our tamariki and I love the New Shoots philosophy. It's such an honour to be a part of this amazing team!”

In her spare time Alina and her family explore new places, read together and play sports.
