My name is Joanne Curd. I have had the privilege of working at Otumoetai Primary school for 15 years. I love helping and supporting the children in class. It gives me a huge sense of fulfilment watching the children grow in both their knowledge and confidence.
My main goal in Teacher Aiding is to ensure children are supported and encouraged to achieve their full potential, in a positive environment. I love teaching the Junior children Stage Two Phonics. It is a fun and energizing process. The students can see their progress and feel good about it. I have been a tutor for the Basic Sight Word Programme for approximately 5 years. It is fulfilling to see the pupils persevere, gain confidence and improve.
My name is Jordan Grogan. I have been working in the office area saving teachers' time by laminating, photocopying, shelving reading resources and many other small jobs. I have been at the school for five years and really enjoy my many jobs.
Hi, I’m Tori and I have the privilege of being on the teacher aide team. I love being able to assist the children who need a little bit of extra support and seeing them excel in their learning. I currently am working in the junior school and am able to draw on my Early Childhood teaching experience when working with the children. I have 2 sons who are in year 6 and year 8. During my spare time I love catching up with friends and family, following my boy’s sporting interests, and shopping.
