Kia Ora, my name is Hongtao, but people usually call me by my English name – Obed. I graduated from New Zealand Tertiary College in Nov 2021, majoring in Early Childhood Teaching. I am provisionally registered and very excited to start my career helping young children develop their skills and have a happy, healthy childhood. I am good at noticing children’s learning moments and using fun teaching strategies and materials to help them extend their imagination and prompt their creativity. I love exploring Arts & Crafts experiences with children and I have lots of exciting ideas to share with our children and my teaching team in the toddler room.
