Kia ora my name is Erin

I graduated from AUT in 2017 with a Bachelor of Education. However, I have been working in Early Childhood for 5 years. I have spent time working with children of all ages since I began teaching. However, I have found my passion lies with the Preschool age group.

My family and I live on the North Shore. I come from a very big family which I think sparked my interest in working with young children I am the eldest in my family with 7 younger sisters and 2 younger brothers.

I am a very creative person and love to find new and exciting ways to extend the children’s learning . It is my passion to incorporate and get the children excited about natural resources. I love to go out into nature and collect lots of natural resources to include in the children’s play, because they are only limited by their imagination.

I enjoy going to the beach to sit and listen to the waves and go for walks. I also love to just relax at home with my family and have movie nights.

I am excited to be joining the great team in the Shooting Stars room. I look forward to getting to know all the wonderful children and whanau here at Reach For The Stars.
