I am excited to be starting my Montessori journey at Arataki School. Montessori education aligns perfectly with my holistic approach, as a mother and teacher.
As an experienced educator, I have spent time teaching in Auckland, London and Rotorua. I have always enjoyed promoting exploration, creativity, and self-directed learning. My passion for empowering my tamariki at home and in the classroom to become future-focussed learners, learn practical life skills and develop a thirst for knowledge, makes Montessori the perfect environment for me.
My husband James and I have two young boys, Oscar is 6 and Hugo is 2. We also have a fur boy called Kyan, who is a Hungarian Vizsla. We live in Papamoa and enjoy going to the beach, swimming, camping, bike riding and being out exploring in nature. We like being creative together through projects including up-cycling furniture, wooden crafts, macrame, cooking, baking, painting and gardening.
I look forward to meeting more of you in the Montessori community and learning more about Montessori education through completion of NAMC training.
