Ko Jan Smith tōku ingoa

He Kairuruku Tautoko Akoranga o Kohungahunga ahau

No Taupō ahau

Ngā mihi māhana ki a Koutou

I am the Early Childhood Learning Support Coordinator based at Tauhara Primary working predominantly in Early Childhood settings across the rohe and supporting positive transitions into School.  Partnering with Whānau to make a positive difference for ākonga within the Ngāti Tūwharetoa rohe sits at the forefront of my role and working within a collaborative team.

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 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  role. 

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