Greetings all
My name is Amber
Taupiri is the Mountain
Waikato is the River
I am from Te Kauwhata
Casey is my Family

Te Kauwhata is my home town, with my family having lived here since I was only a year old. I loved growing up in this friendly community, spending my own primary school years as a student at TKP, way back in the 80s. In 2013 I moved back home to TK with my husband and our four children, and in 2018 I returned to the kura as a member of staff.

I am honoured to be one of the Learning Assistants here at TKP, supporting our tamariki to reach their individual learning goals. 5 years after starting in this role, I still wake up every morning excited about heading to work and spending my days surrounded by all of the inspirational students who attend our school.
