Talofa lava, kia ora and welcome
I have been a teacher at the Whanau Centre since 2001 with a short break in 2010 before returning as Head Teacher in May 2011. I love working with the children especially the under 2’s and I particularly enjoy building a strong relationship with whanau.
I believe in providing cultural awareness and engaging whanau in the child’s development. This has a strong influence on the child’s pathway to learning and provides a holistic approach to the child’s wellbeing.
I have a Practising Certificate from NZ Teachers Council a Diploma of Teaching (Early Childhood Education) Victoria University Wellington and a Diploma in Pacific Island Early Childhood Education Whitireia Community Polytechnic.
