Kia Ora, my name is Marcus Collins.
I completed my Graduate Diploma in Teaching over 2017. During this season, I was fortunate enough to be introduced to the wonderful CPDS community and I am throughly excited to be returning in 2018 as part of the Totara team. Prior to teaching, I worked for an NGO facilitating child protection/safety training for their staff and working alongside a number of wonderful families in a pastoral capacity.
I am passionate about creating learning environments that are positive, fun and engaging, and look forward to partnering with parents and the wider school community over the year to come.
Outside of teaching, I love to travel and have a love of classical history. I drink far too much coffee, and love to head back home to Orewa beach.
