Team Leader & Teacher Room 2
I am Elizabeth Ellis and teach Y1 and 2 students in Room2.
I am really excited to join the TAPS team and work alongside amazing teachers, students and their families. My family and I have recently moved to the Waikato after living in Nelson for four years, previously living in Auckland. I have taught in 2 schools in Auckland and one in Nelson before beginning at Te Awamutu Primary. I am back to work after having some special time at home with my 2 year old daughter, Isla. I love getting out and about for walks, spending time at the beach and with family and friends.
I have taught across all year levels at primary school, and particularly enjoying working with the junior students. I like to encourage all students to be active participants in their learning, and for students to have a voice in the classroom. All students can experience success and have a positive and fun experience at school.
I am looking forward to working with all of the tamariki at TAPS.
