Room 18 Teacher
Talofa lava to all,
I am a mother of 4 beautiful children and my husband and I relocated our family to Hamilton at the start of 2021. I am a passionate Catholic teacher and I really enjoy what I do. Teaching is my vocation, so I bring to it all the important values of being an effective practitioner and a compassionate servant of God. I began teaching in 2007 and I have a range of experience in teaching, as well as in leadership roles such as DRS, MLE Team Leader, Mentor Teacher and Within School Teacher for Kahui Ako in both Auckland and Hamilton.
As a NZ born Samoan, my culture and heritage is key to what makes me unique and I am passionate about growing all learners, especially our Māori and Pasifika learners. I am an active participant in the community with strengths in Connected Learning, Religious Education, Special Character, Performing Arts and a growing love of Sports. I teach using pedagogies that implement personalised learning, collaboration and digital technologies. I know I am an effective practitioner and my learning culture is built amongst strong catholic and family values.
