“I know staff found these sessions very rewarding.”

At all times I witnessed Amiria’s natural teaching ability, she is well-organised and responds to the students with warmth and good humour. Amiria also developed a programme for our staff to explore Te Reo Maori and Te Ao Māori that was carefully planned to meet the needs of individuals.

She gently encouraged us to use Te Reo in the lesson and apply our learning in our day to day interactions with students and was also kind and thoughtful to those of us who struggled with the pronunciation.

I know staff found these sessions very rewarding. A reflective practitioner who is always thinking about how she can refine her teaching and thinking how to best meet the needs of the those she is teaching, whether they are staff or students, Amiria was at all times, professional in her approach. We feel very privileged to have her working with us.
