ROOM 5 Teacher
Talofa lava, my name is Mr Tasi and I am the teacher in Room 5. I taught for 5 years at Kelston Intermediate and enjoyed my first year at Pasadena Intermediate last year. I have three boys Benjamin who is 11, Esera who is 9 and Josiah who is 6. My wife Penny was born in South Africa and we have been married for 15 years. I am a New Zealand born Samoan with a family of 3 brothers and 3 sisters. I can’t tell you how old I am but let’s just say, a number between 30-50. I love sports, movies and food.
I am passionate about what I do and what I teach. Knowledge is power, education informs us to make the correct decisions or learn from what we experience. I am a huge believer in equipping young people with the necessary tools that are not only associated with academics. But life skills, that enable young people to become better citizens. I try to make the classroom a fun and inclusive environment that allows the children to feel confident with their learning and happy to take risks.
