Tessa

I am a third year student at the University of Canterbury studying towards a bachelor of Sports Coaching, majoring in PE and Health Education. I am hoping to complete my secondary schools teacher education training in 2021. I am passionate about and really enjoy working with children. My hobbies include sports such as netball and equestrian and spending time outdoors. I have had many leadership roles throughout my life and grew up in a semi-rural area in Hawkes Bay. I have enjoyed getting to know Christchurch City over the last 2 years that I have lived there. I am a very organised person and value the importance of developing young people’s creative sides, hence why I am studying towards a career that encompasses this. Lots of my time is spent around children. Whether it be coaching local Christchurch netball teams, coaching and leading NZPA Equestrian teams and also babysitting. I love spending time with my younger cousins who are both under two years old, and feel very capable looking after them. In the past, I have been vetted twice for working with children. I have a full, clean drivers licence and my own vehicle, which I would be happy to use for drop off’s and pick up’s before and after school. I would really enjoy being your family’s babysitter or nanny throughout this year and look forward to meeting you and your children.
