About me

Kia Ora koutou katoa...   Ko Hikurangi (ki te tai Tokerau) te Maunga, Ko Tawapuku te Awa, Ko Te Ururangi te Marae, Ko Mahia te tangata, ko Te Uri-O-Hua te Hapu ki te taha o toku matua; ko Ngati Hine te Iwi o toku whaea; Ko Melanie Wihongi-Popham ahau.  Tena Koutou.   He whaea ahau ki oku tamariki toko ono; He karani ahau ki oku mokopuna tekau ma tahi.  Ko toku hoa Rangatira ko Perry Popham, no Ingarangi ona iwi ki te taha o tona Matua.  

I am the 19th child in my whanau, ko te Potiki au. I whanau au i Kawakawa i te tau 1957.  Ka neke matou me toku whanau ki Tamaki makaurau i te wa e 4-5 oku tau.  I reira au i noho tae noa ki te ra i moe au ki toku hoa Rangatira, Perry.  I te wa i whai tamariki maua, i hoki matou ki te kainga, Awarua, noho, tiaki pepi, ara, whanau atu etahi atu pepi ki te kainga.  

I reira maua i te wa tekau ma iwa tau.  Ka neke atu ki Whangarei noho, i te wa i akongia au i te kura mo nga Kaiako, TeTai Tokerau Campus. I reira au i kai ako i nga kura; Tikipunga Primary (1 tau) Kamo Intermediate (4 tau).  Ka nuku te whanau ki Kirikiriroa (te Kura Waenganui o Maeroa (11 tau).  

I have begun a journey at this latter stage of my life to walk the pathway of digital technologies.  I am beginning to see and accept this is the way of learning and teaching. Ka mau te wehi.  Watch this space.  Aroha mai, kimi ora... mauri ora.... .Melanie Lief
