General Information

Kia ora!
I am Nicola Edwards. I love teaching the new entrant children, and I am proud to be in Ruma Kakariki this year, in my sixth year of teaching here at TAPS, after I completed the Post Graduate Diploma of Teaching at the University of Waikato.

I am really proud and inspired by the progress, the development and the learning journey that occurs at this age level. It is a privilege to be a part of such a precious time with the children and families within Timatanga, and to be amongst and working alongside such a strong team of inspiring teachers.

My own two children are both TAPS students; Jasper is currently in Year 4, whilst Thomasina has just ventured to TAI this year.

From way back in a former life, I have a background in Archaeological Conservation and material sciences. I have a passion for travel and exploration which is also combined with a love creating works of art in kiln formed glass.

My family and I have a love of spending time at the beach and outdoors. Coming from the north east of England, I must say I favour this climate and the opportunities that abound!
