What do you enjoy about teaching/your job?

Whakawhanaungatanga with ākonga, kaimahi and te reo. I enjoy receiving emails from alums, sharing their future endeavours in the workforce.

What do you love about your area?

Walking into the office and listening to the hum of engagement among colleagues. It's great being able to nurture relationships and catch up during breaks and after work.

I have owned a couple of small businesses in the Hamilton-Waikato area. I also provide support to not-for-profit, community organisations.
