Personal statement

It is a privilege walking alongside the schools and educationalists that are responsible for our tamariki in their learning spaces. Acknowledging that everyone has a different entry point regarding their learning and creating safe, supported and fun environments is something that I believe is essential for transformation and progress. Whanaungatanga at it’s best, ensures a trusting and warm space to progress current positioning. Supporting schools' vision, graduate profiles and raising student outcomes, is exciting work.
