I am Julianne Bryant. I have lived in the Huapai area for most of my life. I am married and we have four sons. All employed in different trades.
I attended Huapai District School as a child, as a parent, and it is where I began my career as a Teacher Aide, 14 years ago.
I was thrilled to be offered a position as a Learning Assistant at Matua Ngaru and to be part of the journey teaching students of the 21st century in a Modern Learning Environment.
I have worked with students in all year levels (0 - 8). I like to bring humour into the lives of the students and assure them that it is ok to laugh, it is also ok to cry, be sad, and be angry, and that we all learn in different ways. What is easy for some, is hard for others, and that is ok, and together we can find a way that makes learning fun for us all.
I love seeing that "penny drop" moment, when a student realises "they can do it".
