Tēnā koutou katoa,
E aku waka pītau whakareia, e aku waka wāwāhi ngaru, koutou i tere mai i te tahatū o te rangi tēnā koutou katoa.
Ko Nadell Karatea-Kokiri tōku ingoa. He uri ahau i te taha o tōku māmā nō te uranga mai o te rā, nō Whāngarā-mai-tawhiti, ā, i te taha o tōku pāpā nō Matakore-Rangatahi, nō Ngāti Waewae.
Kia Ora, I currently work for CORE Education in the Te Toi Tupu consortium for the National Blended E-Learning Programme as a Māori Development Facilitator. My role is to provide effective support for Māori learners, schools/kura and Blended e-Learning facilitators as part of the Blended eLearning programme. I also collaborate with a range of PLD project teams and other stakeholders to deliver a framework of support for Māori learners in English an Māori medium as part of a national eLearning PLD programme.
My education background hails right back from 2000 when I started teachers training college in Palmerston North. I am Kura Kaupapa Māori, Total Immersion in Education trained and have taught in Kura Kaupapa, and Bilingual Primary schools. In addition to this I have also had two years of teaching in London Primary schools.
On a personal level, I reside in a wonderful city of knowledge where educators are very passionate at ensuring our tamariki strive to be the best they can be. I am the eldest of three children, and have a very supportive whānau who are my strength in all that I do. I absolutely love my kapa haka group, Te Tū Mataora and enjoy participating in various kaupapa Māori in our community. I also enjoy attending various hui regarding the revitalisation of our Māori Language and continue to develop my Te Reo Māori whenever I can.
I look forward to crossing paths with you and hopefully connect with you in some way or another.
E ngā puananī i puhawhea mei nei e kōkōuri, e kōkōtea kia tau mai ai ki tēnei puna mātauranga, tēnā koutou katoa.
