Kia ora! My name is Janet Lloyd and am very excited to be joining the Mangonui School team and teaching the Tuatara class this school year. I’m really looking forward to a year full of learning, fun, inspiring discoveries and new adventures! I am from Cape Town, South Africa, and after a couple of years teaching there, I decided move to the United Arab Emirates to extend my teaching career. Although I have nine years of teaching experience; this will be my first-year teaching in New Zealand. My hobbies include netball, tennis, running, reading, being outdoors and spending time with whānau. Children are a source of constant inspiration to me and love helping them grow into respectful, responsible and motivated individuals.
