Kia ora koutou, my name is Ellyce Martin and I feel excited and privileged to be joining the team at Matua Ngaru School.
Since turning 5 and starting school myself, I decided that I wanted to be a teacher. After a brief change of heart that resulted in a Bachelor or Commerce, I completed the Graduate Diploma in Teaching. I have been teaching for 6 years, the first 4 years at Matipo Primary in Te Atatu teaching across New Entrant and Year 2. Most recently, I spent 2 years teaching Year 3 and Year 4 in London. Before teaching in London I was lucky enough to nanny for the great grandchildren of Roald Dahl!
I love to travel and explore new places and in the past 4 years I have travelled to 40 countries and countless cities. I am excited to spend some time exploring and enjoying our beautiful country.
I’m looking forward to meeting and working with students, parents, colleagues and the wider community at Matua Ngaru School to create the best opportunities for each child to succeed.
