Kia ora, my name is Donna, and it is a great privilege to be given the opportunity to work in the Montessori unit. I have been teaching for the last 19 years, six of these years I have spent teaching at international schools around the world.
I am passionate about children making their own choices.
I read a lovely quote that sums up my philosophy:
“Instead of the teacher reaching up into the world of knowledge and bringing it down for the children to access, the teacher lifts the child up so they can access it themselves.”
I am a qualified chef, beekeeper, Garden to Table expert, and my home gardening demonstrates my commitment to sustainable living.
I have spent nearly two terms in Junior Montessori and I can honestly say this is ‘my jam’.
