Teaching Staff - Topehaehae Team
Teacher Room 5
I'm Jess Flintoff and I am honoured to be teaching at Morrinsville Intermediate!
I myself attended both Morrinsville Intermediate and College and loved the opportunities that they had to offer. I am heading into my 4th year of teaching and love it. My particular interests are sports, music and drama. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my whaanau and friends and being out on the water.
I am passionate about teaching this emerging adolescent age group and love being able to invest into my local community. I am eager to get to know each student in order to best help them achieve their goals and grow.
I look forward to meeting you!
Teacher Room 6 (Mon - Wed)
My favourite quote is ‘Life is a journey, not a destination’ and in my teaching career I can honestly say that I have been on an incredible journey of learning many new things and I am still learning.
I am passionate about teaching, particularly Literacy, Maths, and The Arts. During my time here at Morrinsville Intermediate I have been fortunate to have made many life-long friends, have enjoyed working alongside some great teachers, experienced two school exchange trips to Japan and one to Noumea and I thoroughly enjoy teaching a great bunch of students from the Morrinsville area.
I look forward to meeting with you all.
Teacher Room 6 (Wed - Fri)
My name is Lyndsay Oldham and I am originally from Morrinsville. I gained a Bachelor of Education (Primary) and then a Graduate Diploma of Information Technology in Education.
I taught at Whakatane Intermediate and then spent two years teaching in London and travelling around the UK and Europe.
I have been at Morrinsville Intermediate for about five years in a number of different roles. I love my variety of different teaching roles as I get to know a lot of different students.
When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my nephews and I enjoy being out in nature doing bush walks, bike rides and swimming.
I am excited for the year ahead and look forward to meeting you all.
Teacher Room 7
Hi, my name is Kyla Butcher, as we are about to embark on a year of teaching and learning together, I thought I would start this journey by sharing a little about who I am. I am a mum, an educator and a coach. I have been teaching for 20 years and have been fortunate enough through teaching and playing sport to have travelled and lived in some amazing places in the world.
I look forward to meeting you all!
