Meet Miss Chalmers

Welcome everyone to Room 15's spot on the internet.

I am very excited introduce myself as the classroom teacher in Room 15 this year. I feel very lucky to have a job I am so passionate about. Every year is a new stage in your child's educational journey and it is important for me as their teacher to build on your child's prior experiences and knowledge. This is a time when children develop great independence in their learning. I hope to encourage and motivate the children of Room 15 to take responsibility for their learning by setting goals, making good choices in relation to learning and behaviour, and most of all by being actively engaged in our full and exciting curriculum.

Here's a little information about me:

I am a mother, partner, daughter and teacher. I spend most of my time trying to keep up with my two year-old daughter and her best friend, Bailey the Labrador. I grew up in Papakura and began my teaching career at the same school I attended as a child. One of the many reasons I enjoy teaching junior-aged children is that I can freely indulge my love of visual art. I paint, draw, collage and sprinkle glitter.

I feel very strongly about forming positive relationships with parents and family. I'm sure I will see many of you before and after school, please feel free to stop me for a chat. Homefun books are another great way to communicate - leave me a note if you have something you would like to discuss. If you would like to make a more formal appointment to discuss your child's progress, or anything we do in Room 15, please email me at

P.S - now that you're here, why not leave on comment on one of our blog posts? The children love hearing what you think about their work and experiences!
