Natasha Pinto - Qualified Teacher
- Graduate Diploma in Teaching (Early Childhood Education) -
Kia ora, my name is Natasha. I was born in India and completed my Masters in Sociology before moving to New Zealand to complete my Graduate Diploma in Teaching (ECE) in 2014. Before moving to New Zealand, I was a part of a non-government organisation called ‘Teach for India’ where I worked alongside children of diverse age groups from low-income settings. This was where I realised the importance of early childhood education and decided to pursue it. I feel blessed to have a husband who shares the same zeal and is an early childhood educator. For me, learning is a never ending journey and I feel delighted to support this journey of the children under my care by encouraging their ideas and understanding their views of the world around them. Working alongside families is my strength and I constantly work towards building my relationships with our families. I believe that each child has been placed in my life for a purpose and as a teacher, I strive to discover it. Outside the centre, I dedicate most of my time to my little boy who teaches me so much through his resilience and courage.
