My name is Helen Cunningham and I am the STEM* teacher for Waihi.
*STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathmatics)
I have been with Waihi now for 3 years and I love it! The children really respond to the hands on nature of STEM and I love science experiments too - the messier the better I say!
I am married to Joel and we live on a dairy farm with our son Devon and our many pets (which range from dogs to chickens and even a pet mouse!) Outside of the very busy days at Waihi I love to wind down by getting out cycling or for a walk. I love to garden, read and travel - which has been tricky these last few years!
