To the parents, caregivers and whanau of Room 5 students,
Welcome back! I hope you are all looking forward to 2017 as I am!
For those of you who don't know me, my name is Dana Cowles. I have been a teacher for 10 years now, all of which have been here at Kawakawa Primary School. I am back to full time teaching after working part time for a few years so I could spend some quality time with my precious babies.
I have two gorgeous children, Tegan who is 4 (and ridiculously keen to join me at 'big kids school') and Damian (aka Zebs/Zeber) who is 18 months old. I am married to Brian Cowles and we live in Kawakawa.
I was brought up local, going to Karetu Primary School then on to Bay of Islands College. From there I spent a couple years travelling and being a camp councilor for Camp America before settling in Waikato to study to become a teacher.
I love reading, sciences, sports and P.E, art, maths... most subjects really haha. And I am really excited to be on the online journey with our school. I can't wait to see where our kids go and watch them experience success in new and interesting ways.
I look forward to meeting/reconnecting with you all over the coming weeks :)
