Therefore, my greetings to you all.
I am delighted to become part of Te Rōhutu Whio Kura from January 2023. I am a passionate, experienced, multilingual, and culturally responsive kaiako (teacher), and would love to help students develop a passion for learning, building independence, celebrating diversity, and embracing challenges. I am looking forward to meeting the tamariki (students) of Te Rōhutu Whio.
I am a proud mother of two teenage daughters aged sixteen and seventeen and have been teaching and growing with them. I believe that relationships are the key to students hauora (well-being) to enable them to reach their full potential.
I am passionate about education and have worked closely with the students aged seven to seventeen in my sixteen years old teaching career including India (Delhi) and New Zealand (Palmerston North and Christchurch). Moving to Aotearoa New Zealand six years ago was a challenging decision for my family and also a challenge for my career. I successfully completed Post Graduate Diploma in Education from Massey University, Palmerston North. I hold a Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Education and Master of Science degree. Over the last three years, I have had the honour of teaching year 7 and year 8 children of Aotearoa New Zealand.
I love listening to peoples’ stories and experiences and if I am not doing that I would be singing, dancing or cooking. I enjoy going for adventure trips with my family and long walks in nature with my husband. I am looking forward to the amazing journey that awaits me at Te Rōhutu Whio.
