My name is Justine McManus and I am a fully registered teacher. Your children are a delight and privilege to teach. I enjoy fostering reciprocal relationships with them based on trust and respect, enabling me to notice their individual, diverse strengths, interests and learning styles to further add value to their learning and holistic development.
I’m married to Ray and we live with our beloved pet Bonnie who loves going for long walks. Other passions of mine are travel, the outdoors, theatre, music, the arts, and relaxing with friends and family.
I believe cultural diversity and acknowledging tamariki as being unique is important as it celebrates individuality, advocates inclusion and fosters a child’s sense of well-being and belonging within their learning environment and amongst their friends. Thus, nurturing self-expression, exploration and curiosity, helping them to become independent and competent life-long learners.
