Lou de Lange

Kia ora,

 My name is Lou de Lange and I teach in the lovely and fabulous Matairangi Hub!

 I was a student teacher at Kilbirnie School during my teaching studies in 2017 and I am over the moon to now be working at this AMAZING school as a full-time teacher. I love how supportive and kind the teachers, parents and students are.

I enjoy teaching the older year levels at Kilbirnie School as they have so many exciting interests and emerging passions that they can bring into the classroom and use across many subjects. Being able to teach all sorts of subjects is definitely an exciting part of teaching at the primary school level. I have always loved exploring anything to do with the performing/creative arts, history and writing. Surprisingly (due to my tendency as a child to avoid the subject), teaching Mathematics has become a real highlight of my day as there are plenty of opportunities to make lessons hands-on, fun and creative. 


Outside of school I love baking, cake designing, swimming, running and gardening. I like to make the most of what Wellington has to offer. I love going to live shows, watching sports and dance lessons. This year I am trying tap dancing for the first time! Maybe I’ll be allowed a solo at the school production if I’m good enough?
