About me

Kia ora!  My name is Lisa Grant and I am one of two teaching DP's at Tiaho Primary in Wairoa.  I am  from Gisborne, but have been living and teaching in Wairoa for 10 years...  I have a nearly 8 (going on 15) year old daughter - Kaia- and she comes to Tiaho with me which is great, because I get to see her every day, but I am dreading the day she ends up in my class! :P

I have joined this group because I want to gain confidence and a better understanding of Te Reo Maori, so that I can share my learning with my whanau, and my tamariki at school.  While I know a few words and phrases here and there, I would like to become proficient enough to converse with my partners whanau, and my colleagues, as well as developing a better awareness of my children and their cultures, and learning from their experiences...

Nga mihi nui

    Kei te pai Lisa - I totally understand. Once we are all a little more familiar with how the VLN 'ticks' I'm sure it will become a lot easier to pop in and contribute on a weekly basis. All going well, I might get to meet you f2f in Wairoa on June 8th? A te wā, nā Dee
