JENNIFER HARPER-WALTON - TEACHER
Jen (or Jenny) studied Early Childhood Education through the Open Polytechnic of New Zealand and graduated in May 2014 with a Bachelor of Teaching in Early Childhood Education. She began working at Matamata New Shoots on 9th July 2018.
“I enjoy working in Early Childhood for many reasons, it's great to see children grow and learn at their own pace. It's a buzz when they discover their own abilities to become great curious explorers. I love sharing experiences with children and have a passion for music, dance, waiata and for the children to feel free to express themselves.
Aidan is my 14yr old son, who attends the Dilworth Rural Campus in Mangatawhiri. He is doing great and also learning a lot of new skills. I enjoy spending time with Aidan going on bush walks, and supporting him with his passion for flying and history. I like many different types of music, gardening, reading and tennis. I look forward to meeting you and your children and to build up strong relationships with all of you.”
