I love teaching! I have a good number of years under my belt, having gained experience at a range of multicultural Auckland Schools. I bring to the table a wealth of knowledge that comes from teaching all year levels, understanding the complexities junior teachers face right up to the unique needs of Year 7 & 8, students with special needs and abilities. In addition to my teaching degree, I have also completed some papers towards my masters which I hope to complete in the future. I am passionate about ensuring teachers are well equipped and supported to accelerate achievement so that students are 21st Century Learning ready.
Away from school, I love live music and curling up in the summer shade with a good book. I’m an avid motorsport fan and enjoy whizzing from A to B on my Harley Davidson motorcycle. As long as there is a powerpoint for my hair drier I enjoy camping and while I don’t eat it, I like getting out on the boat for a spot of fishing (I know, I know... The only Maori in NZ that doesn’t eat kai moana!)
I look forward to leading Pekerau Primary School for many years to come!
