I am a Teacher Aide
A little about me and my time at Papatoetoe Intermediate School:
I am a newbie on the block. I began my Teacher Aide Journey about 5 months ago and I’m really enjoying it. No day is ever the same. I have a background in Retail and Warehousing , so this journey is still very new to me but I am willing to learn and give all the support I can to those who need it.
My vision and hopes for my class/our school:
To support students to become the best version of themselves and for them to understand no matter the obstacles/fears in their life they have the ability to overcome anything with hard work and dedication.
A bit more about me:
I am of Maori, Cook Island, Chinese, and Japanese descent. I was born in South Auckland lived in Drury for the past 25 years and did all my schooling in Drury/Papakura. I have 3 brothers and I am the only girl. I enjoy sports, camping, music and hanging out with my Family.
