Lead Teacher/CRT Release Teacher

I am a fun and energetic teacher at Otumoetai Primary. I release teachers on a Wednesday and Thursday. My friend, Bebe, and I really enjoy working with OPS children


Phillipa De Fluiter - Room Tui/Kiwi

Music Specialist/Lead Teacher/CRT Release Teacher

 I now have had the privilege of working at Otumoetai  as one of the classroom release teachers for a number of years, on a part time basis. I acquired most of my 30 + years of teaching experience working in several Normal Schools in Hamilton. I am principally involved in encouraging and developing in the children of Otumoetai all things musical from classroom activities to instrumental. Music is a performing activity so whatever the situation children are "making music".

When not involved in school activities my husband and I enjoy exploring many quiet special places in N.Z in our motorhome or are off visiting our two married grown up children who now live in Australia.

Kia ora

I am a teacher who believes in forming relationships with my students whether I am in there for a block, a week or a year. I also believe that if students are happy in the classroom learning will naturally occur. I love teaching all areas of the curriculum but have a passion for literacy and P.E.
