Hi. My name is Whaea Dom. I have been a teacher for 19 years and have been at WHPS for 10 years. I am the Purapura Year 4 team leader, currently teaching in Room 4.
Every child in my class is an individual and I do what it takes to ensure that each and every one of them makes progress and achieves their goals through catering to their many different learning needs and styles.
I am passionate about teaching and strive to find the potential in every child. My aim is to encourage and facilitate every child to become a problem solver, who is not afraid to take risks with their learning and to learn from any challenges or errors they encounter. Developing resilience and a growth mindset in each of the children in my class is the ultimate aim of my teaching.
Physical fitness is very important to me. I regularly run for fitness and try to ensure I have a balanced lifestyle. I also run our WHPS hockey teams during Terms 2 and 3.
I love being a teacher at WHPS and I truly believe that I work in the best primary school in the country.
