Kia ora e te whanau. My name is Natalya Hazelwood and I am the blessed classroom teacher of room 6. I have worked with year 8 students from ANI for 2 years and am excited to be this year Ahi house staff leader. I am a passionate and enthusiastic teacher that focuses on building and maintaining relationships with my students and their whanau. In my classroom, I strive to create a safe learning environment that fosters positivity, collaboration and respect. I am looking forward to encouraging all my students in discovering their abilities to reach their full potential and inspiring them to reach beyond what they thought possible. 

In my spare time, I am all about family and friends and creating memories together. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy eating out with friends, getting my head into a good book or watching a great Netflix series. 

I am so excited for 2021 and all the opportunities our students will have to achieve great things this year.
