Letisha Derham


Assistant Senior Teacher

Kia ora

I have been teaching in Early Childhood Centres' since 2001 when I graduated with my Bachelor of Teaching and Learning (ECE).

I started teaching at Moa Kids in 2009 and in 2015 I became the Assistant Senior Teacher and curriculum leader of both the preschool and nursery.

I love teaching and I always say to people that I have the best job in the world.  I am passionate about educating children.  My aim is for the children I teach to love learning.  I like to support and encourage children to find solutions to their problems, to challenge themselves and to find ways of sourcing information themselves.

I am inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy.  I love the idea that the learning is directed by the child.  I enjoy learning alongside the children and have learnt many interesting facts while researching with the children.

I have two children, a husband and a rabbit at home.
