General Information

Kia ora koutou.
A big hi to all the special families here at TAPS.

This is my tenth year teaching at TAPS. It's a great school (Yes, I am biased) in the heart of Te Awamutu.

My passion is learning, finding that one little bit of the jigsaw that will provide each and every student the chance to shine and be the best they can be. Learning using digital technologies as a tool to enhance learning for our students is something I have become passionate about, using 21st Century Skills as a basis for the whole rounder being.

Being part of a community which I have whānau connections within is something that keeps myself and my husband in the Te Awamutu area. As a step-mother of three wonderfully successful young men (23, 21, and 15), I know this great community has something to offer each and everyone of our learners here at TAPS.

I am very excited to be the kaiako for our Te Kura Kotahi Rā o Te Ao Māori roopu this year. Our very own one day school focused on the world of Māori - reo, tikanga, kapa haka.
