Meet Room 10's teacher...

Mrs Melissa Larsen.

'I started teaching in 1997 at Cambridge Primary and since then I have taught from Year 1 to Year 6 over 5 schools. I have been teaching at Te Rapa Primary since 2008 and it is a great place to work. I have been happily married for 20 years to my wonderful husband who is a Livestock agent for PGG Wrightson and we have two teenage children. Jack our oldest is in his second year at Auckland University working towards his degree in Global Studies and Stella is in her last year at HGHS.  In my spare time I enjoy reading, catching up with friends, dining out, holidays at our family bach in the Coromandel and spending quality time with my family. I love my job and the many rewards that come with it. My vision is that my classroom is a safe and happy place to be and that every child is unique. I aim to create a programme that caters for all individuals and their needs to the best of my ability so as to support children to be the best that they can be!

We will continue to show Te Rapa HEART in everything we do.
