Kahui Ako leader: Across school teacher
PE and Te Reo Specialist teacher
A little about me and my time at Papatoetoe Intermediate School:
I have committed my first three years of teaching in a classroom at Papatoetoe Intermediate School. I entered the school with a Masters in Education (Hons) and two years left completing my PhD. For me it was using my qualification to provide students the best education experience where they will become lifelong learners and supporting teachers and community through a cultural inclusiveness and connection.
My vision and hopes for our school/my class:
My vision is to build a class that is able to build good relationships, communication skills and take more automoney in their learning. I also would like to influence and motivate teachers by supporting them when required.
A bit more about me:
I am a Tongan born strong woman from a family of 5 siblings. My family takes up a lot of my time outside of work but that is the one thing that keeps me anchored, accountable and happy. I have a home in Fiji in a village called Tomuka in Latoka.
