Personal Statement

I am a driver for excellence and ensuring that key deliverables are met. I am a true 'thruster organiser' who is committed to getting the mahi done at a high standard. I am passionate about supporting whānau and families through education to build on their strengths and achieve their aspirations. I am committed to ensure te reo me ōna tikanga is recognised, validated and incorporated into the learning process of our tamariki.

I'm here to make a difference and to challenge the norm.
