I am Kate Davison and I feel really privileged to be part of the foundation team at Matua Ngaru School.
Over the past 5 years have taught years 2 and 3, 5 and 6, and 7 and 8 at Taupaki School, just down the road from Matua Ngaru. I feel very lucky to be able work in the wonderful North-West area, I love it so much out here that I am currently building my dream home at Bethells Beach.
I grew up in West Auckland, completed my Fine Arts degree at Auckland University, and then moved overseas to teach English for a few years. I came home in 2012 and my passion for teaching has only grown since then. I strive to create an environment where children feel a sense of belonging, develop a deep love for learning and are enthusiastic about school. My interests include art, animals, anything creative, digital technologies and the internet, and exploring our wonderful natural environment.
I am greatly looking forward to welcoming all the new families into the Matua Ngaru community.
