Maja Risteska

Teacher – Twinkling Stars | 0-2 year olds

Hi all, my name is Maya Risteska. I come from Macedonia and I have been in New Zealand since 2011. I became a NZ citizen in 2018 which was very exciting for me and my family.

I love NZ’s nature and diverse culture and I really enjoy living here. I’m happily married and have a daughter Jana, who is 4 years old, who attends RFTS in the Shooting Stars room.

My childcare career started in Macedonia where I was a caregiver for young children for a few years and I’m very excited to have the same opportunity to do what I love at Reach for the Stars.

I’m grateful to be a part of such a good team, and look forward to building strong relationships with all children, families and teachers here at Reach for the Stars.
