General Information

Kia ora, my name is Wendy and I teach Year 4 in Room 16 and am also the proud Team Leader of an amazing team of teachers.. I completed my Bachelor of Teaching (Primary) at Waikato University. I am in my fifteenth year at Te Awamutu Primary School and there is no other place I would rather be. Before coming to TAPS I worked at Te Mata Primary School near Raglan for four and half years.

My passion for teaching lies in mathematics and Growth mindset where I can encourage students to be the best they can be. I enjoy sharing my interest in sports such as table tennis and hockey. In my spare time I like to spend time with family and going to the movies. I also enjoy trying out new cafes where I can find the perfect cappuccino.
