Mrs Hales started teaching at Shelly Park School in 2014 in Pod 1. She lives with her husband, Pat, and three kids, Kelly, Matthew and Bianca. Enid Blyton is her favourite author because she makes you want to be one of the characters. Mrs Hales always wanted to be a teacher when she was little and she worked at ASB Bank before starting to teach. Her favourite song is ‘All about That Bass’ by Megan Trainer. Blue is her favourite colour and she’s also involved in musical theatre!
