Jamie Taylor

Professional profile

Jamie started her teaching career working in mainstream education for five years before transitioning into a bilingual setting for the latter three years. She worked to develop a bilingual setting at Linton Camp School that is unique and supported Māori learners and her colleagues in English-medium to practice Te Reo mē ōna tikanga honorably. Her community involvement supported strong and meaningful connections between local kōhanga reo, community groups, Kapa Haka and Mau rākau, and other bilingual settings across Manawatū.

She enjoys performing and presenting to an audience but also engaging in wānanga where the learning is reciprocal and her facilitation skills are best implemented. Jamie is proud of having supported local kōhanga reo with their governance and management, administration and strategic planning.

Personal statement

“E kore au e ngaro, he kākano i ruia mai i Rangiatea!”
It is my greatest passion to nurture the seeds of growth and ignite a desire for learning within the communities I contribute to. I strive to ‘live’ my legacy , everyday as an example and inspiration for my tamariki and whānau.
