Dee's Message

I really enjoy working with kaiako who are open to learning, who are keen to explore effective approaches, strategies and tools to improve the way in which we teach, to maximise the potential for kaiako and ākonga success. 


On a personal note, I love spending time with whānau and friends, fishing, diving and enjoying the moana and all it has to offer, and our whole family has an extreme fervour and dedication for drag-racing motorsport.



“Dee was fabulous, dynamic, responsive and fun and she scaffolds the learning well at a great pace.  Hugely beneficial and helpful”


“Ka wani kē ngā rauemi, koia kei te kaiwhakahaere a Dee, me mihi ka tika. Kei runga noa atu koutou me ngā rauemi o te kaupapa nei. He nanakia kē a Dee ki te whakahaere i ēnei momo whakangūngūtanga kaiako. E kore e mimiti te puna o mihi”


“I thought the Moderating of papers helped me to really focus on how my children can be successful kaiaka/kairangi students. Dee has a great way of communicating ideas that kaiako do not fully understand.”
