Michele, you were so dynamic, enthusiastic, warm and friendly- you made it easy to get in the groove and learn.
This will help me use Te Reo in the classroom in an ongoing way.

Loved the PD!


I am so inspired right now! I feel like I have some tools and strategies to step up the te reo in my classroom.

Full of information, resources, and practical ideas – Michele truly “walked the talk”.


I was blown away by Michelle’s delivery. She made me feel that I can achieve so much more than I am doing, by making some real simple additions.


[The information was] absolutely simple to take in and very relevant.


This [is] a great way to refresh or remind kaiako of what should be happening in NZ schools. Awesome delivery.

Amazing in each and every way! I appreciated the practical nature of the day and your humour! Highly recommend this PD.

Highly recommended. An amazing presenter who made it easy for me to see how I could increase more te reo in my room.


Michele is a fabulous facilitator who has a real warmth about her. She uses humour along with engaging anecdotes to deliver important messages about Te Ao Maori.


It’s great because you don’t have to go away and make brand new resources. Also, her simple ideas of how to plan and then progress on a topic were so useful and really helped.



See you there,

Ngā mihi nui,

Nā Michele
