We would like to welcome Mrs Michelle Geddes, who will be working in Room 18 for the next five weeks. Our tamariki are excited to have you as a part of our whanau. We hope your time at Holy Cross will be rewarding.
Hello. I would like to introduce myself to you all. My name is Michelle Geddes and I will be spending the next five weeks with you in your classroom. I am in my first year of a teaching degree at the Manukau Campus of Auckland University, and this will be my first long term placement within a school.
I have spent some time in schools previously, as a teacher aide and parent helper, which I thoroughly enjoyed and cannot wait to be a part of a classroom environment again.
I look forward to meeting and getting to know you all, and thank you for allowing me into your classroom and school community.

Ko kōtirangi tōku iwi
Ko ngāti pakeha tōku ingoa
Kei Dannemora tōku kāinga
