Kia ora and Talofa. I'm excited to have been appointed one of the coordinator roles within the newly formed Learning Support Coordinator model. I am a registered Educational Psychologist and have previously worked within the Ministry of Education's Intensive Wraparound Service (IWS) and Behaviour Service. Prior to that, I taught in a local primary school for five years. In 2019, I was fortunate to undertake a 9 month assignment with Volunteer Services Abroad (VSA) in Tuvalu developing a programme to equip teachers with positive behaviour support classroom strategies. I am passionate about supporting students, teachers, and whanau using a strengths based, ecological approach.
