Ko Jessica Draper Ahau  

 My name is Jess Draper.  I graduated from Open Polytechnic with a Bachelor of Teaching (ECE) in 2015. However, I took  two years away from teaching to raise my daughter Ellie.

I am originally from Nottingham in England and moved to New Zealand with my parents and brother in 2006. After spending a year in Auckland we moved down to Waipawa  and have been there ever since, now with my partner and our daughter.

I feel very privileged to now be working alongside  the children of Middle kindergarten as they grow and become capable and confident learners and to be leading our team.

Kia Ora whanau. My name is Charlotte Farley-Pye and I am one of your qualified kaiako here in Middle Kindergarten. I have returned to teaching after being at home with my beautiful daughter for the last 8 months. I live in Waipawa with my partner and daughter where I have been since moving back from Hastings 3 years ago.

I completed my study through Te Tari Puna Ora o Aotearoa, which is now known as Te Rito Maioha, back in 2014 gaining my Bachelor of Teaching in Early Childhood Education. I have also gained my full Teacher Registration in 2018.

I am so looking forward to meeting all of the tamariki and parents/caregivers here at Scallywaggs and becoming part of your whānau.

Kia ora my name is Anna Logan.  I have moved from Blenheim to the Central Hawkes Bay region to teach and learn alongside your children.  I have lived with my parents in the Marlborough Region for several years after returning from the University of Canterbury with my Bachelor of Teaching and Learning (Early Childhood Education).  I look forward to a new adventure and getting to know the children (tamarki), whānau/families, teaching team of Scallywags and the wider community. 

I enjoy providing learning activities for tamariki/children that help support and extend children’s ideas, understandings, knowledge, creativity and which provide open-ended possibilities for learning and discovery. 

I am open-minded, fun and have a sense of humor.  I have a particular interest in the creative arts/craft, music, singing, dancing and drama. 

Outside of teaching I have been involved in Theatre, singing, acting, dancing/Classical Ballet, arts/craft.  I enjoy spending time with my family/whānau, friends and going to the gym, walking, biking and enjoying the outdoor environment.  I love animals and have enjoyed having my own animals, enjoyed helping out at the SPCA, Riding for the Disabled, High Country Horse Trekking Centre in the Marlborough Region and working in Veterinary Clinics on Reception and helping out the Vets with Surgery and Consultations.  I have had an interest helping out with the elderly and have worked as a Health Care Assistant in a Retirement Village also in the Marlborough Region.  In these facilities I have helped out in Dementia, Critical Care Units (CCU) and Rest home Departments.  On the occasion I helped out providing musical, dancing, singing and other activities and entertainment with the elderly to help assist the Diversional Therapist with the activities. 

I feel very grateful for this teaching and learning opportunity and I look forward to getting to know and teach and learn alongside all the tamariki/children, whānau/families, teaching team of Scallywaggs.
