Welcome Back

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 :)

    Great to have you back. Fantastic to see your family photo. Look forward to seeing the learning shared through your class blog this year. Hopefully will get some time to come into your class soon. Enjoy being back in the classroom.
