Welcome to 2018

Welcome back to West End School Room 11. My name is Ms Black and I will be the teacher for the year! This is an exciting opportunity for me to be joining the West End whanau and I cant wait to get to know you all.

A little bit about me....
I have recently finished my studies at Massey University, with a Double Degree in Education and Sociology and a Diploma in Primary Education. Whilst studying full time I continued my interests in Athletics, having in the past been a national representative. This involved coaching, junior development and community event organisation.  I enjoy seeing kids achieve and strive to help them endeavor completing their goals as best I can if it be academic, sporting or cultural. I live on a farm therefore at times the kids will come home telling stories of Ms Blacks lambs, calves or pigs. I hope sharing this small snippet of my life with you, allows you the ability to know me a little bit better, as I get to know your children and yourselves better throughout 2018.

Over the course of the year we will be using the class blogs as well as student blogs to keep whanau updated with student progress. You will see in the coming week students goals appearing on their page, so please have a look. Feel free to pop into the classroom before and after school to see your child's work also.

I look forward to meeting to all,

Ms Black
