General Information

My name is Jennifer Dalton and I am a proud member of the Neptune Team.

Teaching is a passion for me and I particularly enjoy watching the children grow and learn over the course of a year. I like to focus on bringing the children together and creating a 'classroom family' where the children are supportive of each other and have a caring and positive attitude.

In my spare time I practice and teach yoga, garden, walk and love to be in the kitchen baking or experimenting with different recipes. My husband Ed, always reacts positively to my endeavours whether they are successful or not!

I'm looking forward to this year and meeting your child and you.

General Information

Kai ora. I'm Bridget McLaughlin, and I'm excited to return to Te Totara School where I started my teaching career in 2013. I am looking forward to supporting my learners for the rest of their Year 2 journey. I have a passion for gardening, and aim to bring this passion into our classroom.

I'm married to Brendon, and have two teenage sons. Josh, our oldest has moved away from home to go to university, and Liam is in Year 12. I also have Sam, our dog, five chickens and three sheep at home.

I love pottering around in my greenhouses, collecting roses and growing vegetables. I also enjoy spending time in the bush either running or tramping.

I am looking forward to meeting Neptune 28's families, so please come and say hi!
