Ko Shirley-Anne taku ingoa. I am married with three children. I have been working in Early Childhood for the past 10 years. I hold a Bachelor of teaching in Early Childhood and have a passion and aroha for tamariki as I see them as a taonga (gift), to nuture and help grow into confident learners and become successful. I love to share my language, culture and to learn about other cultures.
I believe tamariki and their whānau bring a wealth of knowledge and experience with them. I believe in building strong whanaungatanga (relationships) based on respect and working together to build strong communities and a sense of belonging and cultural identity.
