I am Adrienne Reeves, teacher and Deputy Principal at Westland High School in Hokitika on the West Coast of the South Island. I am a long time learner and happy to have chosen a vocation in secondary level education. The skills taught and the knowledge bases built in our classrooms are second to none. The students who walk the corridors to our classrooms are privileged young people – even if they don’t know it yet.HETTANZ has always had an ‘eye’ on the future and I am grateful to be a part of that ‘eye’, in 2022.

I teach at St Peter’s in Cambridge. I have many years of experience in teaching at a range of levels and using standards from a wide range of areas, including Home and Life Sciences, Technology, DVC and Hospitality. I really enjoy class room teaching and learning new skills to improve our students learning experiences. I have been a HETTANZ member since 1987, and have played an active role holding several positions in the Auckland branch and previously in the Bay of Plenty. In my spare time I enjoy quilting and scrap-booking and spending time with my family.
