I am the very lucky mother of two beautiful darlings named Mario Kapua and Māreikura Anna, and with my husband Davide, we have been living in multilingual, culturally-rich homes in our two countries of Italia and Aotearoa. We currently find ourselves residing back in my hometown in Wairarapa.
My work experience is in education, teaching, curriculum-writing and languages, and my greatest passions lie in Te Reo Māori revitalization, community engagement, cultural competency, communication, and creativity.
I’m privileged to be able to support the Kaiako and whānau at He Pounamu this year and into the future.
