Meet the Teachers

Lou Kidd
Kia ora whānau!

I'm Lou and this is my forth year teaching at Marshland School. This year I am teaching Year 3, and I will be Acting Team Leader, while George Matheson is on maternity leave.

This is my third year teaching junior children, and I have a real love for this level of learning. I am particularly passionate about teaching maths, literacy, science and te reo Māori.

I have two children who attend Marshland School and are currently in Korimako and Toroa. I am originally from England, but have been living in beautiful New Zealand for 13 years now.

Kia ora,


My name is Jill and I am a Teacher Aide within the Pukeko Hub.


I started as a parent volunteer for Marshland School thirteen years ago when the first of my two boys started school. During that time I discovered my love for working with children at this level. My boys are now well into their high school years but I have remained in the junior school where I have worked as a Teacher Aide for five years now.

For me it is a privilege (and a lot of fun) supporting the learning and wellbeing of your tamariki within our school and to be part of a team with such hard working and dedicated teachers.
