Te take i whai ahau i te ara ō te kaiako:

Why I became a Teacher

I wanted to make a difference in children’s lives and be a positive role model.

Ko aku wawata i tēnei ao:

What I would love to see in the world

Is EQUALITY and all our Indigenous Cultures being recognised and valued. To see all living things as equal and for humans to take more notice of how animals behave.

If I could be a child again what would I do?

Try harder at school and be nicer to the teachers who taught me.

My message for the children of Aotearoa

Inā kei te mohio koe ko wai koe, I anga mai koe i hea, kei te mohio koe. Kei te anga atu ki hea.
(If you know who you are and where you are from then you will know where you are going)

Spend more time with whānau and love who you are.
