A little bit about me…
Ko Aoraki te mauka
Ko Waitaki te awa
Ko Takitimu te waka
Ko Kati Huirapa te hapu
Ko Kai Tahu toku iwi
Ko Arowhenua te marae
Ko Beth tōku ikoa
I currently live in Nelson (Whakatū) with my partner and our two daughters.
I have a background in Early Childhood Education. I am a qualified nanny, I have a Diploma in Early Childhood Education. 7 years in the field in varied positions. I have studied 2 years of te reo Māori and this will be by third year studying tikanga Māori on the Matike Mai course at NMIT. I started making poi while I was teaching but had a dream to oneday have a place where teachers could go to get Māori resources.
My passion is providing resources that celebrate Māori and encourage our tamariki to feel a connection to their Māori heritage, growing up positively and confidently in their cultural identity.
I hope to be able to support you on your cultural journey.
Nō reira, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou katoa
