Phillipa Simmonds

Joining the team in February 2017, I have been fortunate to work alongside a dynamic and committed team of colleagues who are committed to improving outcomes for all of our learners.  Culturally responsive and relational pedagogy is an area in which my real passion and focus lies. One of the most fulfilling parts of this role is the opportunity to be exposed to the willingness of schools to critically reflect on their practice and the bold steps they take to improve outcomes for our ākonga in the Taupō rohe.
