Kia Ora, my name is Toni.  I have been a teacher since the year 2000 and during my years of teaching I have been a part of many different educational environments and teaching philosophies.  I have worked in daycare, kindergartens and Montessori environments.  I have a Bachelor of Teaching and Learning degree and I thoroughly enjoy working alongside and with children scaffolding their interests and learning.  I became involved with Bethlehem Community Pre-School when my family moved to Tauranga in 2016 and I chose this environment for my youngest child.  I was impressed with the wonderful caring staff whom fostered children's interests and provided great opportunities for exploration and discoveries.  I was fortunate enough to do some relieving here in 2016 and then transition into a teaching position here in 2017.  I am excited to be a part of the Bethlehem Community Pre-School working closely with all the staff and families as well as supporting and extending children's learning.  I myself have three boys whom are now all at Bethlehem School.  I enjoy running, swimming and biking and taking my children for bush walks and bike rides.
