I have been part of Mangere East Primary school community since 2017. Before this I was an early childhood teacher with Counties Manukau Kindergarten Association. I have done my Masters in Arts, Bachelor of Education from India in Primary and Bachelor of teaching ECE from University of Auckland. I strongly believe that building positive relationships with families and creating a fun and caring class community will help each child to discover their potential and grow. I live in East Auckland with my husband and two grown-up sons. As a family we enjoy watching movies, shopping and walks on the beach.
