I was born and bred here in Tauranga and now live in Papamoa East with my husband James, our three young boys; Beau, Oscar and Louie plus our dog Ralph. We are an active family that you will usually find down at the beach, on bush walks or camping! I have recently finished my Bachelor of Teaching in Early Childhood Education and am excited to get back into teaching after having a few years off being a stay-at-home Mum. I believe in forming positive relationships with children and their family/whanau and getting to know the child and their background. I love letting kids just be kids - picking daisies, looking at clouds, getting messy, climbing trees, finding bugs - all that fun stuff! I absolutely love how curious children are and enjoy taking that wonder and curiosity to the next step the they can develop their learning. I'm excited to teach and learn alongside your children here at Bloom.
