Weaving More Te Reo Into Your Teaching Practice


Are you looking for some inspiration, new ideas and support to kick-start or re-vamp your te reo
programme in 2020?
I am offering Professional Development to kaiako in mainstream schools who are:

  • looking for new ways to integrate te reo throughout their day
  • teaching Years 0-8
  • wanting a scaffolded approach to their te reo lessons
  • BTs
  • part of the school’s Curriculum Māori Team
  • te reo Māori kaiako responsible for teaching room to room
  • beginning their te reo journey
  • mentor teachers
  • Tumuaki (Principals)

For those of you who are returning for another workshop-the structure will be the
same but different resources.

I am thrilled to be bringing the te reo Māori classroom to these Auckland locations:

  • MIT Manukau-Pasifika Centre- Manukau
  • Greenhithe School-Greenhithe
  • Mary Mackillop Centre- Kohimarama

On completion you will have a kete of resources to help you:

  • extend your te reo into other areas of your akomanga
  • implement second language teaching techniques
  • further engage learners through games and activities
  • integrate te reo into your reading programme
