General Information

Kia ora koutou
My name is Maree Lewis and I am privileged to have recently joined the Matawhero team at Te Totara Primary. And to be in the newest classroom is an added bonus!
I have been in the education sector for many years. Most of my teaching career has been based in the junior school. I have had a wide range of experiences throughout my career including teaching reading recovery, being at the various management positions throughout schools, working as a SENCO (Special Education Needs Coordinator) and I have spend some time at the Ministry of Education.
It is very refreshing and rewarding being back in the classroom setting. I love supporting tamariki and their whaanau in transitioning into school life.
My husband and I have 2 wonderful daughters. Our eldest is about to embark on her teaching journey and our youngest will be studying radiation therapy in 2023.
Do pop in and say hello. I love meeting new people.
