Kia Ora Koutou Redwood Whanau My name is Sammy Robinson and I am now a part time Redwood teacher with Emily, Sue and Sarah. I look forward to getting to know you all better and working alongside you with your children. I have two children of my own, Jude and Havyn, and two cats Gucci and Prada who totally rule the roost! I gained my degree through Te Rito Maioha and my diploma in Montessori teaching through the North American Montessori Centre. I have been working as a teacher for over 11 years and found it to be my passion and something I'm proud to do. I am excited to be a part of the Redwood whanau and once again a part of the Learning Curves team! Sammy
