Kia ora whanau, my name is Sarah and I am really excited to be a part of the amazing teaching team here at Bloom, where children and their families come first. I hold a Bachelor of Education (Early Years Degree). I live in Tauranga with my two children, Ollie who is 15 and Abbie who is 13, who attend Otumoetai College and Tauranga Boys College. I have been a permanent fixture in the Bloom team since the beginning of March 2020.
I am a motivated teacher and believe that I have a significant role to play in helping children develop as individuals. I endeavour to provide a supportive learning environment where children can share their strengths to enable their own, and others learning. The core of my philosophy is to ensure that each child’s characteristics are the focus of my attention and background knowledge is formed into effective understanding of each child in order for successful learning to occur.
