Mia Szymanik

Kia Ora, My name is Mia Szymanik, known by the tamariki at SPS as Whaea Mia. I am incredibly lucky to teach in toru classes this year. I am in Ruma tekau mā wha on Wednesdays, Ruma tekau mā whitu on Thursdays and Ruma rua on Fridays. I have been a teacher for 7 years and I have loved every minute of it. I am enjoying teaching at Sylvia Park school because the tauira are so respectful and eager to learn. I am passionate about literacy and the use of te reo Māori in kura. I am currently training for a half marathon in May, running is what I do to nourish my mind, body and soul. I adore spending time with my whānau on weekends, and hanging up north with my parents, where they live in magical Mangawhai. If you see me please say Kia Ora!
