Kia Ora, originally a Taranaki girl, I've lived in Tauranga for the last 20 years. Over this time I have been involved in early childhood, either nannying or centre based, and spent the last eight years as a visiting teacher in the home-based sector.
I am a happy, positive, vibrant person who is willing to give anything a go. I am a firm believer in valuing everyone for who they are and what's important to them and that respect is key, regardless of age, ability and gender.
Learning through play is paramount in helping our tamariki develop skills and competencies in life and, as a teacher, it's my job to make that learning rich and empowering.
I look forward to getting to know you and your whanau and being a part of your tamariki's learning journey.
