General Information

Kia Ora, I’m so happy to have the best little job in the world, teaching kids the joy of art, creativity and a wee bit of mindfulness.

I also love being an artist too, exhibiting my work in art expos and galleries throughout NZ. I’ve also enjoyed working in the film and TV industry.

When I’m not at school I’m usually in my art studio with our fur babies and occasionally delighting in traveling the world with my husband. You’re welcome to join me @catherinejurgensartist

General Information

Teacher of Reading Recovery
Inquiry Team: Te Ao Māori
Whānau House: Kowhai

Kia Ora I have been a teacher at Eskdale School for close to five years now. I completed my teacher registration here and have been here ever since. It’s the best school of course! I have been teaching New Entrants/Year 1 up until this point, and I am also the Reading Recovery teacher for the Junior School; this year I will be teaching six children to accelerate their Reading and Writing skills. I have a wonderful partner and two dogs at home, we recently added one into the mix. She keeps me busy, little Miss Willow. I love making changes to our house, I'm into the DIY and I rein in my brother who happens to be a builder. Family is very important to me.
