Tessa King


Kāhu Tahi Team



General Information

Kia ora koutou.

My name is Tessa King and I feel very privileged to be joining the incredibly welcoming team at Te Ao Mārama.

I am originally from the mighty Manawatu, having grown up in Palmerston North and completed all my schooling there. I have always had a huge love for all things outdoors from the beach to the bush, to the mountains and lakes - anything active!!

Post school, I spent two years living abroad in the UK and Dubai where I flew internationally for Emirates Airline. This time travelling around allowed me to experience many amazing places, food, cultures and customs.

Prior to teaching at Te Ao Mārama, I taught at a middle school and I am enjoying the opportunity to work with younger students in such an exciting learning environment. I have been fortunate enough to spend time relief teaching at Te Ao Mārama this year and have gained huge respect for the friendly staff and the special environment that has been created here.

I look forward to continuing to be a part of the amazing Kāhu team.
