Kia ora, my name is Danielle Looby and I have lived in Taumarunui my whole life.
My partner, David is a firefighter in the army and travels to Waiouru to work. We have two children, Isla and Paora and live on a lifestyle block with lots of animals to keep us busy.
I have been teaching for about 6 years, more than half of that time I spent working at Central Kids Te Ara Mātauranga, so some of you may already know me. For those of you who don’t, I am really excited to get to know you and your whānau and build relationships with you all.
I love spending my free time with my family and getting outdoors. We make trips to the beach in the summer and make the most of having the river running past the back of our property. It is safe to say that we all love the water!
I am so lucky to be returning to Central Kids Te Ara Mātauranga Kindergarten and I can’t wait to be part of such an awesome whānau.
