A warm hello to all the families of Team 67.
My name is Bonnie Mills and I am delighted to be collaboratively teaching Team 67 with Wendy Parkes. I am an experienced teacher and have taught a range of levels. I have previously taught at Central School and on the North Shore in Auckland. I am dedicated to supporting my students and ensure that they feel safe and secure to reach their potential.
My family and I moved to New Plymouth three years ago and absolutely love the Taranaki lifestyle. I am married to Toby and we have three boys Josh, Ryan and Benjamin. Prior to teaching I spent five years in the Royal New Zealand Navy.
I am a passionate teacher and the needs and interests of my students are central to my teaching approach. I hold high expectations for the students, I am firm but fair when managing behaviour and encourage all students to take risks with their learning. I am excited by the many opportunities available for the students and staff at Frankley School. Together we will learn to make a positive difference, become a creative learner and an effective communicator.
I appreciate your support and I value open communication. I look forward to working with your child and getting to know the Frankley School community.
