New Zealand Registered Teacher

Tammy’s passion for play based learning co exists with her passion of indigenous pedagogy and a desire to see authentic implementation of indigenous pedagogy in the classroom. She has taught in both bilingual and immersion Māori classrooms which were centered around Mātauranga Māori and in alignment with play-based learning kaupapa.

Tammy’s desire is to empower teachers, through wānanga to develop further skills to effectively implement a play-based learning approach that is sustained with Mātauranga Māori.
