Hi there! My name is Kim. I have been working with children for the past 16 years. As a teacher, child-
therapist, mentor and artist it is my passion to see children thrive in who they are.
I love making learning fun and exciting. I believe in guiding children and creating safe spaces for them
to express their learning and in this way bringing out the best in who they are through creativity,
encouragement and support.
After living in South Africa for most of my life, my family and I moved to Auckland in 2019. I live in
Waimuaku with my husband, son and all of our beautiful pets. In my spare time, I love exploring the
beautiful beaches and forests. I enjoy cycling, sports, music, city-hopping and shopping.
It is a privilege to be part of the team at Matua Ngaru. I look forward to being part of the tamarikis'
lives and hope that they will be seen, heard and feel valued by having me as their learning assistant.
