Te Totara Primary School - Growing and Learning Together

Daniel Turner


Teacher in Marama 12

General Information

Kia Ora! My name is Daniel Turner and this is my first year teaching. I am very fortunate to be teaching at an amazing school like Te Totara Primary. I completed my Bachelor of Teaching in Primary in 2022 at the University of Waikato. At school I enjoy teaching everything, but writing, physical education and the arts are my favourites.

My interests outside of school are sports and movies. I love all sports, but have a special passion for basketball. I enjoy playing, coaching and watching basketball.
I am a bit of a film-buff and love to study certain films directed by my favorite directors.
My Mum’s side of the family comes from Croatia. I have grown up in a very bi-cultural environment and I have a strong understanding of the importance of knowing where you come from and finding your own identity.
I have an open door policy so feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
