General Information

My name is Kerry-Ann Burgoyne and have been in the education field for sixteen years. I originally studied Social Sciences majoring in psychology and then completing my Masters with a first class honors in Health Development and Policy. I later undertook a Graduate diploma in Education and started my first teaching position in Tauranga. After teaching for nine years in Tauranga the opportunity arose for us to move to Matamata so my husband could expand his agricultural business. An RTLB position became available and I believed that this could be a fantastic opportunity to work with a range of ages, teaching personnel providing advice and guidance for students with learning and behaviour needs. I completed my Post Graduate Diploma in Special Needs Resource Teaching in 2010. I enjoy being part of a team and working with a wide range of professionals to improve learning and behaviour outcomes for students in our care.

General Information

Tēnā koutou katoa
Since completing my teaching degree 9 years ago, I have been privileged to teach at a small country school just outside of Waharoa. During this time I have developed a special interest in accelerating learning for those children who face challenges and barriers with achievement. My own teaching practice has been influenced by the guidance and support I received from the services of RTLB, ensuring my students were supported to overcome difficulties.
Being passionate about children believing in themselves and being all that they can be, I feel honoured that I can now give support in a more specialised way. With this thinking, and consolidating what I have learnt as a classroom and specialist literacy teacher, I am very excited to have the opportunity to develop my own learning further.
I am very much looking forward to meeting, and collaborating with, the RTLB team at Cambridge, local schools within the cluster, and with those students and whānau that that are facing challenges.

In my spare time I like to exercise body and mind and really enjoy being part of the Cambridge rowing club, so at least three mornings a week I get to see the sun come up, while sitting on my bottom, going backwards at speed (with no rear vision mirror). I also go to the gym, garden, enjoy doing crafts and have a monthly stall where I spend time with my Mum selling sock monkeys. I like to have a balanced life and family and friends are a very important part of that too.

I am passionate about education and the difference that I can make. I have been teaching for nearly 30 years with the last 16½ being at Leamington School in Cambridge. I feel fortunate to have worked with many wonderful people over my career and have had the pleasure of being part of many children’s lives. One of the biggest joys that I get is the diversity and challenge that it brings, the ever changing landscape of the profession and the people that I get to meet along the way. I am very excited about being part of the RTLB team, of getting to know you, working alongside you and learning from you.

I am looking forward to meeting you in the new year.

General Information

Kia ora koutou,

I am from Sheffield in the North of England but moved to New Zealand in 2007 where I have settled in Cambridge with my family. I am a husband to Mary and father to Evie (5), Charlotte (3) and Isla (1). My background before teaching was in Outdoor Education. I then completed my Secondary training in Physical Education and Health at Waikato University in 2006 with my first job being at Cambridge High School. I then moved back to the U.K. for two years where I worked in Primary and Intermediate Special Education Units. On our return to New Zealand, I started working at Matamata College where I took on additional responsibilities of Year 10 Dean and Coach of PB4L-SW. I look forward to meeting and working with you.

Kind regards
Alex
