It is an honour to be part of the Taupō Kāhui Ako team as a Learning Support Coordinator and to work with tamariki in our area.

I have worked in Taupō and internationally for over 25 years, in a number of different roles, both in the classroom, in senior management and in school improvement.

I am based out of Taupō Nui-a-Tia college and will be working with Kaiako, other learning support coordinators, SENCO and senior management teams.

I am working in the area of Year 9 engagement, including the Belong and Dream initiative, alternative education, managing transitions, supporting learning and behaviour and working with community organisations.

It is great to be part of this collaborative environment, to respond to learners’ needs and to empower learners to do things they could not otherwise do.
