Ko Wai Au

Tēnā koutou katoa.
Ko Tararua te maunga.
Ko Manawatu te awa.

Ko Higgins te hapū.
Ko Ngati Pakeha te iwi.
Ko Aaron rāua ko Julie aku mātua.
He huatahi ahau.

Ko Heath taku ingoa.
Nō Rongotea ahau.
Nō reira, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou katoa.

Having worked in sales and marketing, I made the decision to return to teaching after teaching Conversational English in Japan for three years after university.

In my final year of university, I helped pilot a program to provide ongoing pastoral care for international students where I facilitated weekly workshops. From this experience, I chose to go to Japan and teach. During my time in Japan, I became my school's coordinator for the child specific learning programs and helped open two additional children-specific schools.

During my working career, I had an interest in both inductions and building others capability and was fortunate to gain managerial experience in my last post before returning to university.

This blog will focus on my growth and development as a teacher as part of the Manaiakalani Digital Teaching Academy (MDTA). I will be sharing my reflections, both inside the learning spaces and in the community.
