General Information

Kia ora koutou, my name is Brooke Goodwin.
I feel extremely excited and blessed to be a teacher in the junior community at Marian. I have always wanted to become an educator at Marian Catholic School since completing my second-year practicum here in 2017.

My major passions are the arts, sports and mathematics. I am a strong advocate for providing rich experiences for my children, by effectively engaging students through all curriculum areas. Providing meaningful real-life experiences, and fostering opportunities that encourage students to advance their confidence and growth is what I strive to uphold in my classroom.

I am driven and inspired to work with learners, family and whānau effectively. I believe it is important to build effective partnerships. In my classroom, this will be apparent through reciprocal communication, allowing all to be a part of their child’s learning journey. My tamariki are always at the heart of my teaching and learning, I value and care for diverse learners, acknowledging that every individual student has something meaningful to bring into the classroom.

I am an enthusiastic, motivated teacher who is eager to grow alongside my children. I am excited to implement the knowledge and skills gained into my programmes, supporting all levels of learners. I look forward to instilling Marian Catholic Schools’ values into teaching and learning, empowering and encouraging my students to recognise their potential.
