Kristen Den Otter - Qualified Teacher
- Graduate Diploma in Teaching (Early Childhood Education) -
Kia ora, my name is Kristen. I was born in New Zealand to Dutch parents and originally completed a Bachelor of Design before moving to Korea and teaching English to primary school students for two years. Whist there I discovered how much I love teaching and working with young children. I returned to New Zealand and completed Graduate Diploma in Teaching - Early Childhood Education at Auckland University. I began as a reliever at Castor Bay Infant Care and loved this place so much I accepted a permanent full time role. I believe it is my role to support children’s learning and wellbeing so that they are confident and happy in themselves and their learning. I am constantly striving to improve myself and my teaching practice to support the tamariki, their whānau and my fellow kaiako. In my spare time I enjoy travelling, spending time in the outdoors and having quality time with friends and family.
