Bachelor of Teaching
My name is Caroline and I am proud to start my teaching career here at TAPS in the fabulous room 2 this year.
I am excited for this year ahead and look forward to meeting all the new students and having fun with them while learning.
In my spare time, I love baking, spending time with my family and friends, and also having cuddles with my cheeky little kitten.
Teacher Room 3 (NE) - Team Leader
I completed my teacher training at Auckland College on Education in 1986 with a diploma of teaching in Early Childhood. I have been teaching for 16 years in Early childhood and have been privileged to work at TAPS in the new entrant team. This year I am a full time teacher in Room 3 so I can continue to follow my passion of working alongside children and their families who are transitioning into school.

Welcome to Room 4!
My name is Toni Densem and I have been teaching for over 12 years within a range of year levels. I have had the pleasure of teaching our new entrant students here at TAPS for the past 4 years.
Their excitement, smiles and love for learning is infectious. I am very excited to meet all our new five year olds and their families who will be joining TAPS this year.
I look forward to meeting you all soon!

I am loving being a New Entrants Teacher here at TAPS! The enthusiasm for learning of our new entrant students is so inspiring and motivating, and being a part of the start to their amazing learning journey is a wonderful privilege. I am a Mum to two wonderful children, who are both here at TAPS too. I enjoy spending time outdoors and exploring this wonderful country.
Teacher Rm 6 (NE)
Bachelor of Teaching and Learning, Grad Dip teaching, early years
I am having fun learning with an amazing group of New Entrants. I am mum to 4 grown up children, have 3 adorable grandsons and I am married to a boy I met in primary school many, many years ago. I love sport, especially football which I still manage to play at the weekend.
My family are also lucky enough to be involved with the Trillian Trek, which are an amazing group of people that help children achieve their potential.
