Hineihaea's Message

I roto i ngā tau kua taha, kua waimarie au i te mahitahi ki ngā kaiako matatau ki tō rātou mahi, hiakai ki te ako, kaha ki te tautoko i tō tātou reo me te ārahi i ā rātou ākonga. Ko tāku e ngākaunui ana ko te tautoko i ngā kaiako me ngā pouārahi e kimi huarahi atu anō ana kia eke ai ngā kura, ngā kaiako me ngā ākonga ki ngā taumata e hiahiatia ana (taha reo, taha ako). Ko tāku e whakapono ana, ko tā te kaiako he whakamāmā i te ako, ko tā te kura he whakamāmā i te whakaako. E pēnei ai, me hoe tahi te waka, ā, me mārama te kite i te pae tawhiti.

 

There are three things I am most passionate about – my whānau, te reo Māori, and learning. I am particularly excited by opportunities to do things differently, and believe that teaching and learning shouldn’t be as hard or as complex as we sometimes make them. I am driven by the values we have at Haemata —integrity, professionalism, and manaakitanga.
