Tēnā koutou Raphael House whānau.
Ko Laura Lopez taku ingoa.
I am a Kindergarten teacher in the Pohutukawa room.
I have worked at the school in different learning support roles at the Kindergarten for over seven years. After completing my PostGradDip in ECE and my Waldorf ECE Diploma in 2020, I took on a teaching position.
I am also a mum to two amazing young people in Class 8 and 5.
In a previous life I was a Social Worker but it was through my children that I discovered a passion for Early Childhood and have fallen in love ever since.
I love crafting, going for long walks in the bush, learning about other cultures and speaking other languages.
I speak Spanish, Italian and English and I am learning Te Reo Māori.
I love working at the Kindergarten!
And I hope you enjoy your journey at Raphael House.
