Awesomeness in action



My favourite super hero is: 

My Grandmother -Te Ngaere Hinewera Ahipene Cookson

My favourite Whakatauki

Ehara taku toa i te toa takitahi, he toa takitini kē

My favourite song: 

Why I became a Teacher:

One Drop - Bob Marley

Taku inoi - Maisey Rika

To promote rūmaki education and help tamariki Māori navigate and excel in mainstream education, by way of te reo, tikanga and kawa integrated across all mainstream subject areas

What I would love to see in the world:

Māori achievement
The return of indigenous practices, art forms, language and mātauranga

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

Nothing. I had a great 90s childhood and wish I could do it all over again!

My message for our taonga of Aotearoa

Tēnā koutou
