Kia ora

My name is Dianne and I am a teacher in the Rata Room And Kowhai.

I moved to Inglewood in 2011 with my partner Alex and my daughter Annabella. Watching my daughter grow and learn sparked my passion to become a teacher. In 2012 I started my Diploma in Teaching ECE part-time and in 2015 I upgraded to a Bachelor of Teaching in ECE. I am currently qualified and look forward to learning te reo Māori in the future.

In my spare time I love spending time with family and friends. Enjoying the great outdoors, road trips and raranga (flax weaving).

I look forward to working alongside you and your whānau to help your children grow into confident and competent learners.
