Kia ora e te whānau, ko Gershon tōku ingoa. I am the Totara Team Leader and the kaiako of room 25. I look forward to building a safe and engaging environment with my ākonga. Born in Bahrain, I moved to Auckland when I was 5 and grew up in Mount Roskill. I love the outdoors and being active, and am eager to incorporate this passion into my classroom teaching. In my spare time, I enjoy creating music, running, or going on hikes. I can’t wait to learn all about the passions and interests of the ākonga in room 25, and look forward to growing together as we take on 2024. Mā te wā!
