Kia ora e te whanau. My name is Natalya Hazelwood and I am the classroom teacher of room 29. I started my ANI journey in 2019 and have taught year 8 for the last 3 years. I am a passionate and enthusiastic teacher who 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, boxing or watching a great Netflix series. I am so excited for 2022 and all the opportunities our students will have to achieve great things this year.
