My name is Lisa
I live in New Zealand and love chocolate, walks and learning stuff.
I am a trained teacher in preschool through to college (high school).
I have experience teaching Montessori 5-9 and Mainstream ages 5-13.
My teaching philosophy is Montessori Infused. I love learning from other pedagogies and believe our educational methods should adapt to the children in front of us. All my Montessori experience has been in Montessori units attached to a mainstream/traditional school.
I have a particular passion for ensuring that our classrooms are welcoming places for Indigenous and minority families and try to ensure my resources present and reach the diverse children in our classrooms.
I live in a neurodiverse household and value the different perspectives and ways of doing life that this brings! I value process as much as product and am continuing to increase my knowledge to improve how I teach those who are neurodiverse.
