Thanks Mrs Graham,

As a teacher myself, you fully supported my initiation into NZ teaching from the UK to NZ. You treated every member of staff, student and families personally – remembering all the un-important little stuff too, (e.g. one day I found a bag of peppers into my cubby hole as I had mentioned how expensive I found them here compared to NZ). You led by example – 100% walking the talk, and having high expectations of everyone (staff and students).  I worked as hard as I could to reach those expectations out of the respect I had for you and have often asked myself in challenging situations with staff , “what would Dallas have done?” Thanks.
