Hayley Smith

Hi, I'm Hayley. I joined the Te Ao Mārama team in 2021 as an Inclusive Learning Assistant.

I feel so privileged to be a part of the incredible team and community that Te Ao Mārama have created. I have come from Te Totara Primary where I worked part time as a Teacher Aide over the last five years.

I enjoy so many aspects of my role, in particular making special connections with the children under my care and I am so passionate about being a positive part of the growth in these children.

I am married to Dan and we have three children, with my eldest starting Year 7 and youngest starting school this May. Our middle child also attends Te Ao Mārama.

But ... I can’t forget our newest member, our Border Terrier puppy, Ben, who is full of energy and so much love!

In our spare time we love hanging out with our extended family and always look forward to our big camping trip each year at Ōhope!

Te Ao Mārama has a great name in our community and I am so excited to be a part of their amazing future.

I am looking forward to seeing all the smiling children and getting to know the families of Te Ao Mārama.
