Pohutukawa – Room 1 – Year 3/4

Kia ora,

Ko Ashleigh Kulwant taku ingoa. I am the Year 3 and 4 teacher in Pohutukawa (Room 1). I feel very lucky to be here at Houghton Valley School. I really love the school community and its beautiful environment.

My background before teaching was in Mental Health and Psychology, and I moved into Education as I am passionate about making a difference in the lives of New Zealand’s tamariki, and I felt that being a teacher provided me with the best opportunity to do this on a daily basis!

When I’m not at school, I am likely to be found exploring Wellington, visiting the local beaches, going for walks and checking out the amazing cafes that are around! I am originally from Auckland, and have only been in Wellington for a year so am still finding the hidden gems – please let me know if you have any recommendations! I also have a big family so am often found video-calling one of my many siblings (there are 5 of them!).

I’m so happy to get to be a part of this wonderful school’s community, please feel free to say hello if you see me. I would love to get to know you all!
