Teacher Education Director (Sue Cherrington's story)

sue cherrington 1© ChildForum

 

Dr Sue Cherrington began her career as a kindergarten teacher and has worked in early childhood teacher education for more than 20 years.

She has been responsible for the early childhood teacher education programmes at Victoria University of Wellington.

 

What was your early life like?

I had a very happy childhood, the youngest of three children in a very typical New Zealand middle-class family. I have strong memories of regular picnics at the beach and bushwalks and although I’m not particularly sporty or “outdoorsy”, our outdoor environment is very important to me – and I think it’s particularly important that our children get to experience natural outdoor environments (where they can be active and get dirty) as part of their ECE experiences.

My mother was widowed at an early age (when I was 11) and became an active advocate for widows and widowers – throughout my life she has been a significant influence and role model, especially around women’s rights, social justice and advocacy.
