General Information

Kia ora, My name is Maree and I teach in Room 3.
I completed my teacher training at Auckland College on Education in 1986 with a diploma of teaching in Early Childhood. I taught for 16 years in Early childhood Centres before I had the privilege to work at TAPS in 2007.
I am Team leader and am passionate about working alongside children and their families who are transitioning into school. I love how resilient children are and how quickly they adapt to school life.
I am married to Chris who owns The Garden Shop and have 3 children all who attended TAPS.
I love watching my children participate in sport and cultural events and value family time at the beach.
