Director of Learning/Deputy Principal
Kia ora Whānau of Haeata.
I feel very privileged to be working in my role as a Director of Learning at Haeata Community Campus. Prior to beginning in this role I worked as a Deputy Principal at a kura also on the East of Christchurch.
I am passionate about community through the lens of a mother, educator and leader.
I believe in promoting personal and social development through fostering positive attitudes and building strong relationships.
The future at Haeata excites me, the opportunities are endless not just for our young people but also for our community.

I have never left the Education System since I entered it as a 5 year old at Waterloo Primary in Lower Hutt, Wellington. I was labelled as ‘special needs” because no one could understand what I was saying. Being the pōtiki(the baby of the family) only my mother could understand me. It took 2 years to be diagnosed with a speech impediment and this is something I struggle with everyday in my life. Funnily enough when I speak te reo Māori I don’t have it. This experience has given me a unique perspective of the needs of our most vulnerable ākonga. When I had children I realized I needed to learn my language Te Reo Māori for the future of my and my tamariki, whanau, hapū, and my iwi.
I began my teaching career in 1994. I was lucky enough to begin my teaching career in Tuakau, Papakura and Takanini.
