Year 5/6

Kia ora whanau

I am Maggie Pivac. I am a proud Scottish born, Westie-raised, New Zealander. My tane is Ngai Takoto/Ngati Kahu, from the Far North and I also cherish this connection. Doubtless Bay is something of a second home to our whanau. The most important thing in my life is my family. I am a proud mama and grandma. I have been teaching for almost 30 years-many of those at Don Buck School. It is a privilege to be part of such an accepting, supportive and diverse community. I love the openness and enthusiasm of our tamariki. The joy for me in teaching are the relationships I get to build with tamariki, and providing learning experiences that help them follow their passions and interests. It is a pleasure to discover the talents and strengths that so many of our tamariki have. He aha te mea nui o te ao. He tangata, he tangata, he tangata
