Kia Ora! My name is Kristin and I have been with the RFTS whānau since 2018. I have been an educator for the past 12 years. I am originally from the Philippines but Aotearoa has been my home for the past three years.

Being a mum and teacher has given me a special insight as to where my students are coming from and where they are heading, as well as understanding how their parents feel and their inspirations for their child.

My family and I love to bake, read books, play in the park, go to the beach, and watch movies at home. I also have a special interest in utilising technology in education because I believe that technology in the hands of great teachers can be transformational.

As I journey together with our tamariki here at RFTS, I am reminded of what I enjoy the most: the sense of community and family that I found here and how our lovely parents and amazing team of teachers work together. I am blessed to be able to be part of a nurturing, caring and loving centre where children can learn and experience new challenges to help build their confidence and identity while doing what they do best – exploring the world around them and being inquisitive.
