About me

 Mum to Scartlett (6yrs) who is in Te Puna bilingual class at Westport North School.

 I teach a year 5/6 class.

I'm married to Rhys Hall who is a talented stone carver and up and coming DJ (Paipo).

I'm seriously addicted to shoes and coffee. The  beach is my favourite place especially Tauranga Bay on a sunny day. I'm always keen to travel and shop. Gardening is how I relax. I'm back at the gym and enjoying everything except burpees!

Extremely excited about getting out of my comfort zone and continuing my Te Reo Maori journey.

    Hi Lara. Welcome to the Quadblogging Aotearoa Group. Please fill in the google form with your details to take part. I will match your class up with classes of a similar age range as soon as there are four similar classes. Each blog will have a turn at being the lead blog for a week when the other classes will comment on it. I will embed a google doc with groups on when we get going. Please feel free to offer suggestions and contribute to the discussions. And please spread the word.
