No he kakano iti, he puawai ana he kauri – From a small seed, a tall tree will blossom. Julia believes there is greatness with every student and all have the potential to become tall trees. Julia’s teaching philosophy centres on allowing students to find the greatness within themselves and watching them blossom as they embrace their strengths.
