Tēnā koutou katoa
I tae mai ōku tīpuna ki Aotearoa I te tau 1950 o te waka ko Tangaroa.
Ko Waikato te awa e mahea nei oku māharahara.
Ko Hakarimata te maunga nāna ahau I whakaruruhau
No Ingarangi ōku tīpuna.
Ko tēnei tau mihi ki Tainui, ko ngā tangata whenua o te rohe nei.
Ko Kingston te ingoa whānau.
Ko Ella, ko Jamie, ko Corey āku tamariki.
No reira tēnā koutou katoa

My journey in education started over 22 years ago studying psychology and then teaching at the University of Waikato. Following this I secured my first job as an Intermediate School teacher in South Auckland. This was where I soon discovered my desire even as a Beginning Teacher to lead others and bring heart and soul into teaching and education. Here my love for diversity and working through adversity was planted. A couple of years later I moved back to Waikato and worked in a Decile 1 Primary school
