Hello. . .
My name is Maria Osborne and I have had a relationship with Hampton Hill school for two years now and am looking forward to continuing this partnership in 2017.
I moved out to New Zealand from Britain 13 years ago, and along with my family (husband Barry, Oliver 11 and Isabelle 14), have made Aotearoa our home. As well as my British and New Zealand cultural background, I am also proud to add my Greek heritage to the melting pot.
I thoroughly enjoy teaching children with their unique personalities and ideas, every day is different. You can’t beat the eureka moment when a child discovers something new or figures something out for the first time and is filled with pride in their accomplishment.
When I am not teaching I love spending time with my family and friends. Family values are important to me.
I love food, both making it and eating it for myself and others and enjoy experimenting with different cuisines.
