Resource Teacher of Literacy



Hi, my name is Lesley Drakeford and I am currently working from Wainuiomata Intermediate as Resource Teacher of Literacy within the Wainuiomata cluster (22) schools.  I started my position here in 2012, completing my Postgraduate Diploma in Literacy Specialism.

I am married to the lovely Richard (31 years) and have two married adult daughters, one residing in the USA who works for Meryl Lynch as a financial advisor (can you tell I am proud of her, as I have mentioned the high profile company she works for?) and one who is marketing manager and publicist for the New Zealand School of Dance.  Add to the mix, one very fluffy and lovable chinchilla persian names "Molly".  My favourite quote: 'No matter how many mistakes you make or how slow your progress, you are still way ahead of everyone who isn't trying'.
