I am the Lead Teacher in the Kaitiaki Room.  My role here at C&R is to be a supportive and active team member who embraces and accepte themselves for who they are and support tamariki to reach their full potential.  I am passionate about my work because I love what I do and am naturally committed to working towards positive outcomes which motivates me to do my best in any situation.  I hold strong beliefs in building positive and respectful relationships with others.  My passion is nurturing tamariki in the development of social and emotional competency and I am also interested in neuroscience.

Kia ora koutou, I am so lucky to be a kaiako at Christopher & Robin in the Kaitiaki rūma. I have worked in early childhood for 9 years. I love seeing our tamariki grow in their self confidence, mana, and social skills. Tamariki bring who they are, and their knowledge from their whānau and tupuna with them and I love to learn about everything that makes them who they are. Our tamariki and so precious and special, they are our taonga. Outside of work I love to play tennis and travel.
