General Information

Hi, my name is Ange and I’m in my fifth year of teaching Science at Cambridge Primary School. During my time teaching at CPS, I have enjoyed seeing the children grow in their knowledge and understanding of science. I am often inspired by the way the children make new discoveries, and how they demonstrate creative thinking and innovative ideas beyond what I could ever imagine. My hope is that by “unlocking” science early on, a passion will ignite within the children, leading them to exciting discoveries and extraordinary outcomes.

Before discovering my love for teaching, I was originally drawn into the study of science through pre- medicine. I then went on to complete my Masters in Chemistry and worked in the field of Biomedical Science in London. I later returned to the Waikato, and enjoyed many years of Secondary School Chemistry teaching and then embraced a new journey into Primary School Science. In my spare time, I thrive on outdoor adventure, with water sports and boating being high on my list. I am a Waikato girl, who loves being surrounded in nature and I live in the countryside with my husband and three children.
