Ko Natalie tōku ingoa. I was born and raised in East Auckland and have recently moved to the beautiful Hibiscus Coast with my partner and our two dogs. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy going fishing, hiking, taking my dogs to the local beaches and parks and occasionally training for a half marathon!
I am a fully qualified and registered Teacher. Since graduating in 2013 I have taught in public Kindergarten. This experience has influenced my belief that fostering responsive relationships with people, places and things in our local community, exploration in the outdoors and free play throughout the early years are essential in providing high quality learning outcomes for our tamariki. I am so excited to be part of the wonderful and passionate team of Teachers here at Cottontails and I am looking forward to getting to know you, your child and your whānau!
