Ko Tongariro tōku Maunga
Ko Waikato tōku Awa

Nō Taupō ahau
Ko Tauhara Primary tōku Kura
Ko Jan Smith tōku ingoa 

Ngā mihi māhana ki a Koutou,

Taupō is my Turangawaewae, where I was brought up and completed my own schooling. I returned to raise my two now adult Tamariki and a Kindergarten teaching career spanning 26 years.  I am looking forward to continuing my life-long learning journey in my new role as the Early Childhood Education – Learning Support Coordinator within a collaborative team.  I will continue to strive in strengthening my partnership with Ngāti Tūwharetoa Iwi, whānau, tamariki, professional colleagues, and the wider Taupō community in an inclusive environment in this new role. 

Nō reira, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā tātou katoa.
