I am passionate about tamariki and their sense of mana whenua and mana atua.
As a positive, caring and energetic individual, Laura strongly believes in the kaupapa of I Have a Dream NZ and the community in which we work. Laura joins us with over 12 years of teaching experience in Kindergarten, working as a Teacher and Head Teacher over the years, and presenting and blogging within the ECE sector. Through this journey, Laura has grown a passion for working alongside amazing tamariki and their whanau and it is what drives and motivates her each day. In her role as Whanau Coordinator for Totara Grove Primary School, Laura’s dream is to work alongside and create positive relationships and outcomes with tamariki and whanau.
With her love of exercise, in particular for running and boot camping keeping Laura fit, she is able to keep up with her busy schedule as a Whanau Coordinator, wife, mum and animal-lover.
