An experienced classroom teacher, Mrs Kerr has taught across a range of curricula and examination boards both nationally and internationally. She is also currently the chairperson of Women in Educational Leadership New Zealand (WIEL) – an Auckland-based support network for women in and aspiring to leadership roles in education in New Zealand.

“At WIEL, we have a very broad definition of leadership,” she said. “We want to provide an arena in which women can meet, network and learn.”

Passionate about English, teaching, and the energy of school life, she says her first impression of ACG Parnell College has been its warmth.

“The students and staff have all been warm and welcoming. It’s a vibrant, energetic place with things happening all the time.”
