Kia Ora my name is Lauren Jurlina and this will be my third year teaching, and second at Mangonui School.
I lived away from the Far North for 6 years before 2019, but was born and raised in Waiharara and Houhora.
It has always been my goal to move home and teach in the Far North and give something back to a community that gave me so much growing up.
I love the outdoors, especially the beach. Nothing compares to all the amazing beaches we have here. Rugby is a huge part of my life and most Saturdays you will find my on the sideline supporting the Eastern Seniors.
I am very excited to continue working with the tamariki this year.
