Milky Way Team (Year 5/6)
Teacher in Milky Way 18
Teacher in Milky Way 19
My name is Levi O'Hallahan and I am excited to be continuing my early teaching career with the Te Totara family this year. I have completed a Gaduate Diploma of Teaching and a Bachelor of Sport and Leisure at the University of Waikato.
I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically and socially. It is my aim as a teacher to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing a safe and supportive learning environment.
Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my son and husband. We are a sport orientated family and enjoy being in the outdoors.
Feel free to come in, say hello and have a chat.

I'm Kurdt Webber and I am ecstatic to begin my teaching career at Te Totara Primary School in 2021! I am passionate about education and developing a learning environment that is conducive to success for all children.
Outside of the classroom, I love skateboarding, reading, op-shopping and writing.
I'm excited for 2021 and all that it has in store for myself and my students. Please feel free to contact me at any time.
