About me


Ka ora ka ako, ka ako ka ora

In living, we learn. In learning, we live.

I began my teaching pathway in Playcentre when my eldest son Ashley turned one. I enjoy challenging myself and as the whakataukī would suggest, professional development and ongoing learning are important to me. I am a Resource Teacher of LIteracy in Tokoroa.  My personal strengths include mentoring, sharing learning, ongoing personal and professional development and literacy education.

My Whānau;  supporting me is my husband Stephen, we have four amazing children. Rebecca, Ashley, Robert, and Laura.  Robert and Laura are both studying at Unitec Auckland.  My Eldest two are married, Rebecca to Jae and Ashley to Kelly.   We have two very loved ageing cats Slinkymalinky and Midnight.
