Last term the NZAPT and Cambridge High School, said farewell to a stalwart of Psychology teaching in New Zealand. Sarah Monkley has moved her family halfway across the world to join her husband in Denver, Colorado.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Sarah for her many years of service to Psychology and express our appreciation for all the blood, sweat and tears she poured into a subject she is extremely passionate about. Sarah has been a member of the NZAPT committee for 10 years, and she has also taught Psychology at Cambridge High School for more than 20 years. This is a daunting legacy to follow in the footsteps of; Sarah leaves behind a flourishing department which she built from the ground up. This thriving department now boasts a four-teacher team and is one of the most popular options for senior students at Cambridge High School, this is very much a credit to her hard work and dedication as well as the warm and engaging person she is.
We will dearly miss her and hope that once her adventures are done, she will return home and pick up where she has left off. We wish her all the best for her travels and look forward to seeing how she brings Psychology to the Americans.
