About Me

Kia Ora! I'm Jillian and I’m excited to be back in Rito Hub. I grew up in the US but have called New Zealand my home for the past 15 years. I’ve been teaching for over 13 years and love guiding students along their learning journey. I enjoy being part of a collaborative learning environment and hope that I can empower students to achieve their best and develop their talents.

About Me

Kia ora. I am a born and bred Auckland girl! My family lived in South Auckland but the lure of the beaches and the quaint town of Warkworth led us to the move to Snells Beach. My mum, dad and brother still live there. I have a Science degree but teaching is where my passion was found and has continued to flourish over the years. I am currently the Year 5 and 6 team leader and Across School Leader for our Kahui Ako. I live by the saying ' To be better than before.' I absolutely love what I do and believe in strong wh?naungatanga (relationships). I have travelled to quite a few countries, my favourites being France, Samoa and India and all for different reasons. In my spare time, I work on my house, read, cook and play netball.

About Me

I was born in a small country town in the UK, living there before moving to start my teaching career in Manchester. My husband and I visited New Zealand in 2011 and fell in love with the country, making the move over two years later. I was lucky enough to join the Chelsea wh?nau shortly after arriving here. Since then, we have started our own family and we have two young daughters that take up every moment of our spare time, although I can sometimes be found somewhere out in nature, hiking near a beach or swimming in the sea!

About Me

Kia ora! I was born and raised on the North Shore of Auckland and have always felt fortunate to live near the stunning beaches here. I am excited about rejoining the Chelsea whanau after briefly teaching here in 2022. Coming from an arts-oriented family, music holds a special place in my heart. I participated in Kapa Haka groups during my school days and have enjoyed playing guitar and guiding groups as a teacher. I take great pleasure in helping my learners discover their passions, and ensuring that my classroom is a happy place for both them and myself. Beyond the school environment, you'll find me playing the drums, enjoying beach sunsets, and spending time with my friends and family. I love going on road trips and exploring all that Aotearoa has to offer. I look forward to meeting you all!

Welcome to the Māhuri Team for 2024. We are excited to be working with you and your family and have an exciting curriculum planned for the year. In the Māhuri Team we believe that the students are at the heart of everything we do. Engaging our students in their learning is our priority. We take pride in our collective strengths and passions across the curriculum which include: visual art, drama, PE, science, mathematics and literacy. We all LOVE teaching senior school students as we believe these are the years of growth development and opportunities as our learners mature and ready themselves for their intermediate years. We strive to produce independent learners who are self-motivated. It is a pleasure seeing Māhuri students go beyond their comfort zone and learn new skills for life.
