Ko Atiria tōku ingoa
Tēnā koutou katoa. I te wā i tamariki ana āhau, i tipu au ki te Waiariki, kātahi ka hū nuku au ki te rohe o Waikato, ki te whiwhi tōku tohu kaiako. I timata tōku ara kaiako i te tau 2017 ki ngā Kohungahunga me ngā Kōhanga Reo, heoi anō, inaiānei, he kaiako reorua āhau. Ko tōku tino wawata, kia maia te tū ō ngā tamariki mokopuna ki ngā ao e rua, te ao Māori me te ao hurihuri.
Kia Ora my name is Atiria. I was born and raised in the Bay of Plenty and moved to the Waikato region to pursue a career in teaching. I have been teaching for 4 years in Māori medium education at both primary and early childhood levels. I am passionate about encouraging all tamariki to embrace and be confident in te ao Māori as well as the ever evolving world around us.
