Coadette Low


Coadette grew up in the Hawkes Bay, before heading to Massey University where she completed a BSc in Animal Science and Physiology. Her career then began in South Australia as a Quality Assurance Officer and Microbiologist in the Meat Industry. After a while Coadette realised that she really enjoyed teaching, so switched careers and became an Agricultural Science teacher. In 2016, after four years teaching in Australia, it was time to come home to New Zealand. She is now the teacher of Agriculture and Agribusiness at Rathkeale College in the Wairarapa, which includes managing the Rathkeale Land Lab, and is a Future Beef Expo Committee member. For Coadette, being an Agriculture teacher is incredibly rewarding. Inspiring and guiding the next generation by sharing her passion for Agriculture - inside and outside the classroom.
