Donna Fribrant-Katz – Kaiako/Early Childhood Teacher
Kia Ora, I graduated from AUT in 2013 with a Bachelor of Education in Early Childhood Education and am now working on my teacher registration.
I have been relieving at Highbury House Early Learning Centre since 2011 after doing my first practicum here and I am now a permanent staff member. I have also done some relieving in other centres over the past 14 years whilst raising three beautiful children with my husband.
I am very passionate about teaching children to be risk takers, be confident, to believe in themselves and for them to build respectful, reciprocal, relationships with the other children, the teachers and their families/whanau. I am also passionate about Te Reo and teaching this to the children through waita, dance and other resources.
I feel very grateful to be working in such an incredible environment where the children and their interests always come first. The other teachers here at Highbury House Early Learning Centre are passionate, dedicated and full of amazing knowledge and I feel very lucky to be a part of this wonderful team.
