A long standing member of the Puketapu team, Corinne is Taranaki born and bred. Corinne believes the each and every individual is precious and valuable, and that there is something unique about everyone. Being happy, enjoying learning that is exciting and fun helps build  life long learners. Corinne is a strong believer in the hauhora philosophy, recognising the importance of well-being and whole person learning. We are all learners, and we are all teachers, so learning is a partnership. Corinne feels strongly about empowering, students, colleagues and parents/whanau to make the most of that. Corinne loves literacy and the arts, especially writing, and is often involved in projects and literacy groups.
