Rumaki  Teacher


Kia ora koutou, my name is Heather Ruru and I am a Rumaki Reo Māori teacher at Pasadena Intermediate. I am a new teacher and graduated last year from The University of Auckland with a teaching degree with a Māori Medium specialisation. I am looking forward to using trans language acquisition strategies to support students to further strengthen their fluency in te reo Māori and tikanga Māori.
I believe that strong relationships between the teacher, school and whānau are essential for student success.
