Hello, my name is Brooke Tuialii and I am excited at the opportunity to teach our students food and soft technology. I love this age group and enjoy seeing them experiment with ingredients and materials. I have spent time as a classroom teacher in South Auckland and Christchurch.

I have three primary age children and together with my husband we enjoy a variety of sports and trips to the beach.

We recently returned from Japan where we lived for 10 years. It was the most amazing experience to live in a country so different to New Zealand. We learned so much from being part of such a respectful culture and of course enjoyed the delicious food.

My husband is a New Zealand born Samoan and my parents are of Maori and Tongan descent so I am passionate about cultural heritage and enjoy understanding the various cultures our students represent. We all come together to make one large ANI whanau which is very special.
