Hi, I’m Colleen and I am the team leader of the Piwakawaka Team. I am currently team teaching with Jane Austen in room 23. I love working with Jane in our shared environment. We enjoy collaborating together and have a flexible and open minded approach in supporting our children in their learning. You will often see me biking to school, through Cornwall Park. My husband and I are both keen cyclists and have participated many times in the 160km Lake Taupo challenge. Unfortunately we have missed the last two years which has been disappointing. Fingers crossed for this year. I have one son who has just graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) from The University of Canterbury and it is lovely to have him living back at home after three years.
