Last week our roll grew from 3 lovely students to 5 and today we now have 11 amazing students in total. In room 14 we strive to achieve the best we can at our own pace. We have many different cultures, each adding their own flavour to our classroom.
Kia Ora whanau and friends this is just a brief introduction of who I am and where I come from and what I have to offer your children. I look forward to meeting you all when you come and drop off your children.
I am of Måori descent born in the south island but raised in the far north. I believe in establishing relationships between myself and the students as well as their whanau. I am very passionate about my culture and I intend to involve maori culture into my teaching practice here at Homai. I aspire to create a fun and safe learning environment for our students to call their own. I am a mother to my beautiful daughter Te Uwhinga-Waimoko who is 4 years of age and is also fluent in Te reo maori.
I am truely honoured to be apart of an awesome school who value our maori learners as much as I do. I look forward to meeting you all in the near future.
Whāia te iti kahurangi ki te tūohu koe me he maunga teitei
Seek the treasure you value most dearly: if you bow your head, let it be to a lofty mountain
This whakatauki is about aiming high or for what is truly valuable, but it's real message is to be persistent and don't let obstacles stop you from reaching your goal.
