My name is Glenys Bichan and I am the Library Manager at Cambridge High School, and have enjoyed this role for 6 years. Prior to librarianship I worked as a Teacher Aide, and as an Office Manager at a Panel Beaters.
I have enjoyed studying New Zealand History and Politics at Victoria University. I am passionate about education impacting all people in the world regardless of opportunity, and founded and run an organisation called RATA Teacher Support to help train untrained teachers in India and Africa. I love riding my bike and I love playing hockey!
I have been a member of SLANZA for 6 years and have found it very helpful in my own journey as a librarian, it has been my first port of call for any help and support I have needed as I have grown in my career. It will be my privilege to work on the National Executive to help continue to provide excellent support and professional development to my colleagues who work in libraries as they support the students within schools of Aotearoa New Zealand.
