General Information

My name is Chloe Stantiall and I have been born and raised, here in the mighty Waikato. I love my job as a teacher and am proud to teach here at Silverdale Normal School. When I’m not teaching, I love to be at the beach, on the sports field, in the garden, on the mountain or anywhere outdoors!
I am passionate about kids enjoying learning and thriving in the strengths that they have. Helping kids to develop skills and strategies that will help them now and in their future is important to me.
Using te reo Māori in the classroom and physical education are just two of the subjects that I particularly enjoy teaching.
I love to collaborate with whānau and involve you in the learning process, so please come and say kia ora!

General Information

Kia ora koutou,
I feel privileged to teach at Silverdale Normal School which has such a supportive community. I enjoy creating opportunities for children to engage in hands on project based learning. Developing perseverance, resilience, trust and respect through outdoor education experiences is another passion of mine.
My wife and I have 3 daughters Eliana who loves gymnastics, Lucia who loves dance and Sienna who loves the beach. My wife Stacey loves sports especially netball and the outdoors. I like sports too and enjoy rugby, kayaking, fishing and volleyball. I also enjoy gardening, building things, the beach, fishing, exploring new places, helping on the farm and spending time with my family. As a teacher I really enjoy getting to know each and everyone of my students and learning from them. My goal for this year is to learn to play the guitar so if you know how to, I would appreciate any help!

General Information

Hi, I'm Judy Paterson and I am one of the Year 5 / 6 teachers at Silverdale Normal School.  I have been teaching for the past 10 years and am continually learning new and improved strategies.  I love extending myself and the challenges a teaching role offers.  I am married to an amazing guy called Trent and have 3 wonderful children of whom we are actively involved with in their sports and life choices.  We live on a dairy farm in Karapiro, which keeps us all busy and offers a diverse opportunity in my life.  The door is always open in Room 13 and welcomes parents and caregivers the opportunity to see what the students are learning.

General Information

Kia ora, my name is Kent Burnard and I have been in the mighty Waikato for just over 3 years. My wife, Emma, and two kids, Seb and Abby, moved up from Christchurch. We had spent lots of time travelling this way and loved the Waikato area and all that it offers. I enjoy fishing both in lakes and sea up here and follow the kids on bikes of all varieties and in different events and disciplines. I encourage hands-on learning and children explore lots of different experiences. I am looking forward to teaching in Room 17 this year and meeting the new students and whānau.
