Room 9 Teacher
Kia ora e te whānau,
I was welcomed into the Marian whānau in 2017 as a student-teacher, and straight away knew Marian was the place for me. Shortly after, I was blessed to join the junior community, where my exciting teaching journey began!
I pride myself in creating a safe and nurturing learning environment where my students build the courage to have a growth mindset and take risks in their learning. I love seeing students develop the confidence to explore their curiosities and wonderings, realising their incredible potential as learners. Every child has something so meaningful to offer, and I value the experiences each child brings to my ākomanga.
Being an avid organiser, I enjoy getting creative and often make new resources, decorate, and re-organise my classroom. I love creating an inspiring, exciting and fun space for my tamariki to learn in.
Outside of school, I can be found out on the lake on the boat, jet skis and spending time at the beautiful beaches in Aotearoa, Whangamata being my family holiday spot from a young age. I value quality time with loved ones and keeping active. I have a passion for learning new languages, Japanese and te Reo Māori being my current interests. I am eager to try new things and always ready for the challenge!
My passion and enthusiasm for teaching grow each day. I absolutely love what I do!
