Carmen Sim Room 12 Teacher - Year 7

Carmen loves the opportunity to get to know her students individual interests and passions, and to support them in their learning journey in their first year at Oamaru Intermediate.

She came to Primary teaching with many other trades behind her. She's been a qualified hairdresser, a technical writer, a tertiary lecturer and a teacher aide. Carmen has a degree in Information Technology and a Post Graduate Diploma in Primary Teaching and Learning.
