A teacher at Cheviot Little Oaks since 2002, I am passionate about children and believe that every child is special and unique and that they are the true teachers among us. I enjoy the Montessori philosophy as I believe that it empowers children to have a natural love of learning with a huge emphasis on respect and independence. I believe that through my role I am here to encourage, support and nurture every child in a caring and positive way. It is a privilege to work in partnership with parents, caregivers and whanau to give their children the best possible opportunities and care.
