My passion for coaching netball led me to teacher training where I have been challenged and truly realised my passion for education. I believe I have a significant role to play, helping students develop and aspire to reach their potential, with a particular empathy for Maori Learners. I plan and implement with student agency, ensuring students are interested, a meaningful and relevant programme to engage learners, inspire learning and raise achievement. I am enthusiastic about cultural needs, pastoral care and extra-curricular activities.
