Welcome to our new staff in Term 2
We are lucky to welcome two new teachers to Trident this term and we know our Trident community will make them welcome. Their faces will be familiar to many as regular relievers in our school prior to taking up their current positions. Welcome to Mrs Hill and Mrs Williamson!
"Kia ora koutou,
My name is Daralyn Hill, I am a local girl born and breed on Motuore Farm 10 minutes out of Ohope. I am an ex Trident student and since leaving Trident and after university, I spent my first five years teaching at Opotiki College, then two years at Gisborne Girls High School and have since been in and out of Trident relief teaching over the past four years.
I have a five year old at Ohope Beach Primary and a four year old starting school this year in term four.
I will be part-time at Trident in the Physical Education and Science department and am also part time working on our family farm.
I am a total outdoor enthusiast especially in adventure racing and hunting/fishing. I look forward to passing on my passion of the outdoors through teaching, building new relationships with students and helping out with sport teams.
Kia ora to Karen Williamson! Mrs Williamson is an English, Social Sciences and History teacher who is passionate about her students and education. Her husband, Steve Williamson also teaches English at Trident High School, and they have two children, a daughter Isla who is 6 and son Oscar aged 4. Mrs Williamson grew up in Whakatane and attended Whakatane High School. She earned her degree from Canterbury University, and moved back to Whakatane a week before the Christchurch earthquake in 2011. Since arriving back in the Bay of Plenty, Mrs Williamson has worked at Opōtiki College. She has enjoyed getting to know our kura community, and looks forward to continuing her journey at Trident going forward.
