Kia ora e te whanau,
My husband and I moved back to Taupo in 1999. The Taupo region, and active life on our
farm, has provided us with a fantastic backdrop in which to raise our 3 children.
In my life, particularly since becoming a teacher, I have seen students struggle
unnecessarily with their learning. I am a big believer in Universal Design for Learning
(UDL) in which all students can achieve the outcomes, in their own way using their
The Learning Support Coordinator (LSC) role offers a unique opportunity for school
communities to access a plethora of resources, and to work collaboratively with a team
of very motivated and experienced educators.
I am currently based at Taupo-Nui-a-Tia as an LSC, working closely with SENCO and
Senior Management with screening (Irlens and Dyslexia), learning and behaviour
support, implementing assistive technology use, managing transitions and liasing with
the wider community to better support our akonga.
