About Mrs Neilson
Kia ora e te whanau,
Here are a few things about me...
Outside of school I like to spend my time doing positive things in the community, promoting race unity, working with youth, learning te reo and also keeping fit, through mountain biking and hiking. I live on a kiwifruit orchard with my husband and we enjoy boating and spending time with our grown up kids.
About Room 1
As a teacher I consider myself calm and caring. Children thrive when they feel safe and loved. I was fortunate to train and teach in Montessori education and this influence is evident in my classroom at Rangiuru School. I try to create a classroom environment where the children feel like they can choose what they work on, work alone or with the buddies that they choose to work with, and have the freedom to move in and out of the classroom, learning inside or outside. I work with each child, individually or in small groups, several times throughout the day, to extend their learning in numeracy, literacy, arts and sciences. I run a daily sports and fitness programme and music and singing too. Whanau involvement is warmly welcomed.
