Teacher Room 13



General Information

Hello, I am Erin Westgate and I teach in a year 3 class in Room 13. I studied at Waikato University and completed my teaching degree in 2009. My first school I taught at was Te Rapa Primary School where I stayed for 3 years before going on maternity leave. After having Milla and Jackson we shifted back to Te Awamutu where my story begins with TAPS. I began with relieving and then a shared position before moving into full time in 2019. Milla and Jackson are both at TAPS and love haing mum on hand for cuddles. My huge love in teaching is anything creative and arty. The Arts is definitely my passion and particularly dance. Before doing my teaching degree I ran a dance studio here in Te Awamutu and Otorohanga. I love productions and seeing students get a buzz out of performing.
