Learning Support/ Release Teacher

Kia Ora, my name is Amèlia Farràs-Knowles, I am the Learning Centre Teacher and Release Teacher. I have BA, a double major in Film-Tv and Media Studies, and Anthropology, and a Graduate Dip in Secondary Teaching, in Media Studies and Social Science. Having worked in a bilingual school in Madrid – Spain, I have relevant experience working with ESOL learners and believe speaking more than one language is a huge strength in our global society.

Raising student achievement is at the forefront of Pasadena’s focus. Acceptance, understanding and inclusion are inherent aspects of my approach to supporting learners access the New Zealand Curriculum.
