Ruma 6 Kaiako

Ko Tanya King tōku ingoa. It was over 20 years ago that I started teaching at Tītahi Bay School and since then I have taught every age group and had various roles, working alongside our tamariki and kaiako. Our school is a very special place within a special community that I just love. You can’t help but feel happy walking around our school grounds with our beautiful environment, our murals and cared for gardens and playgrounds, not to mention our warm and friendly staff and KURA kids. I feel that teaching is not just a job but a privilege in that I get to teach and promote KURA values and create opportunities that have an impact. When I am not at school you will find me hanging out with my family and friends (or possibly cuddling our new pet rabbits!) or in the yoga studio, finding peace and relaxation.

Kia ora. Kō Sarah Taylor tōku ingoa. I have been teaching for 14 years and most of these at this wonderful kura. It is the amazing tamariki, kaiako and environment that makes this place feel like a home away from home for me. Currently, I teach at Tītahi Bay School two days a week. Outside of school I am busy with my three children, hanging with my friends, cooking or exercising- my favourite ways to relax!

Kia Ora Koutou, Ko India McMahon tōku ingoa.
I have recently joined the crew here at Titahi bay and love being part of such a supportive and amazing kura. I grew up here in Titahi bay and am thrilled to be part of the education for our tamariki. Alongside working with our new entrants I am currently studying to further pursue a career in education. Outside of the classroom I enjoy spending time at the beach, playing hockey and surrounding myself with friends and family.

Kō Kristina Stevens tōku ingoa. I’ve been a teacher for over 20 years in both the US and NZ. I’ve been at Tītahi Bay School since 2013. If your children have me as their teacher, they may have a slight American accent by the end of the year! What makes our school unique is our KURA values, colourful school grounds and fantastic Tītahi Bay community. I’m grateful for having a career that I love and for the privilege of working with such wonderful tamariki and kaimahi. In my spare time I enjoy listening to music, doing jigsaw puzzles, going for walks on the beach, or curling up on the couch with a good book and a cup of tea.

Tēnā koutou katoa. Ko Lauren Blakeley tōku ingoa. I am super excited to be joining the team at Tītahi Bay School next year. Having recently completed my study to become a teacher I am thrilled to be joining such a great kura with amazing kaiako and tamariki. I am passionate about ensuring my classroom is a safe, supportive and inclusive environment where students thrive as individuals and as a team. Sports are a huge passion of mine, having competed nationally in equestrian and netball before more recently playing rugby and rugby league for Otago. When not playing sports I love spending time in nature and spending time with whānau and friends.
