Hello, I am Diana Hayman. I am the Specialist GATE teacher at CPDS. I began my schooling at CPDS, went to Remuera Intermediate, EGGS and Auckland University. Although Law and Marketing interested me, I left university to train as a primary teacher. After many years as a Maths HOD and then Deputy Principal, I chose my path as an educator and advocate for Gifted children. I work for the New Zealand Centre for Gifted Education and run one day programmes across Auckland. I am passionate about catering for the needs of our unique Gifted and Talented learners at CPDS. I value our parent community and have incredible support from them in my role. I am a mum of two boys, David, nearly 16 and James 11. I am an avid reader and like to swim.
