Kia ora, my name is Kelly Gaston, I am delighted to be a member of the Matua Ngaru team and look forward to the incredible journey ahead with the tamariki. I have been teaching for 10 years at Riverhead School where I have taught years 3 through 6 and have been lucky enough to enjoy the opportunity to work in a collaborative environment for some time now. I have lived most of my life in Auckland where I currently live with my husband and two children.
I have a love of learning and gained a Bachelor of Business. After working in the private sector for a few years, I decided to follow my passion for teaching and completed a Graduate Diploma of Teaching. I have a dedication for Literacy and Digital learning and have a Certificate in Computing. I am also a Google Educator and Apple Teacher.
In my spare time, I enjoy writing and reading as well as spending time with the family and friends. I look forward to working with whanau and the community.
