I am passionate in teaching, protecting and maintaining: aroha, manners, tikanga, te reo Māori, respect, animals and our land mother Papatūānuku and the ways in which you would like to be treated are all vital to me. These have all played a valuable role in my upbringing, shaping me into who I am today and influencing how and what I teach to the generations of tomorrow. Everyday I am influenced by those who I descended from. What I do is not just for me, it is also for my people, whānau, my iwi and in honor of those who walked before me.
