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.
