Kaiārahi Marautanga / Curriculum Leader
I am originally from Taranaki but have called Wellington home since 2002.
I enjoy heading home to Taranaki regularly to visit with whānau and explore nature. I have no children of my own yet but I have many nieces and nephews who keep me busy in my 'down time'.
I have been teaching professionally in Early Childhood settings since 2002. This has included a variety of centre based and home based care settings. I trained at Victoria University and obtained my Bachelor of Education ECE in 2008.
I have enjoyed exploring the RIE and Reggio Emilia philosophies of care and aim to include concepts from these in my own teaching practice. I look forward to being one of your Kaiako here at Childspace Northland, working alongside you all as I support your children as they learn, develop, work, grow and play here.
