Mayde N. Orio - Teacher


Originally from the Philippines, Mayde and her family have lived in New Zealand for seven years. She has experience teaching in an early childhood centre in Washington, USA and has worked as an ECE relieving teacher in various centres in New Zealand, including New Shoots where she joined the team in 2016.

“Working with young children has always been my passion. The bonds we create, the laughter we make, playing with the children, getting messy and doing crafts. Watching them laugh and smile while learning everyday is the most rewarding feeling and I enjoy every second.

I studied my Bachelor Degree in Secondary Education with a major in Social Studies from Liceo De Cagayan University, Philippines. I also earned my Elementary Education, specialising in Early Childhood Education at the same university.”

Mayde has a 13 year old son. She loves fashion, shopping, to travel and experience beautiful scenery and ‘unforgettable moments’.
