General Information

Kia ora koutou

My name is Dori Villasol-Alonso, I am thrilled to have gained a teaching position at Te Totara School and I am looking forward to getting to know the school community.
I am originally from Spain but I have lived in NZ for the last 25 years. I have two adult children, Alex is a marine technician in Auckland and Sofia is at university in Wellington. I am married to Dave and we enjoy spending time at home and travelling whenever we can.
I have taught at St Columba's Cathlolic School for the last eleven years. I believe as a teacher I have the privilege to be part of a child's life. I enjoy supporting students to help them realise their potential and experience success. I see myself as a "life long learner" having recently completed a postgraduate certificate in the teaching of mathematics to priority students.
