Lisa is our newest member of the senior management team at ACG Parnell College taking responsibility for Middle School matters, international students and many administrative concerns. Most recently, Lisa has been our Year 7 Dean and this has provided her with plenty of pastoral care experience in our community. In addition, Lisa has taught Chemistry at Parnell since 2015 including achieving the highest levels of success with the IGCSE Combined Science classes. In the last two years all students in these classes have gained excellent A* passes. Lisa’s educational interests extend beyond the classroom and she is keen to see Middle School learning include outdoor experiences. In previous schools, she has had responsibility for the Duke of Edinburgh and World Challenge programmes. Lisa was born and raised in the UK and before entering teaching, she worked in finance. Married, with two teenage children, Lisa lives in Takapuna and, outside of school hours, she enjoys reading and walking. A few weeks into her new role, Lisa is enjoying the new challenges and values playing a part in the development of students. “I feel privileged to be a part of the lives of so many young people”, she says.
