Kia ora my name is Whitney Williams-Totorewa. My family comes from the East Coast of the North Island (Te Araroa, Ruatorea, Tokomaru Bay and Tolaga Bay). I have been teaching for 10 years in New Zealand and also in Australia. The majority of my teaching has been in a Māori Immersion setting in the Waikato. I have a passion for teaching and love going to mahi everyday to teach our tamariki, our future leaders. If I am not at school I enjoy sports, dance, attending te reo Māori wananga, kapa haka and spending time with my whānau and friends.
