Meet the Owner: Johanna Buckley

Johanna Buckley Hamilton Rototuna

Hello I am Johanna, the owner of NumberWorks'nWords in Hamilton Rototuna.

I moved from England in 2003 with Stuart and our two children Joseph and Jemima, to begin a new adventure full of summer sunshine, idyllic beaches and breath-taking scenery. Five years ago we swapped coastal living for the green fields of the Waikato and began a rural life filled with Jemima's growing collection of pets and Joe's varied sporting endeavours.

I am a New Zealand trained teacher and have taught children from their very first days at school, learning to read and write, to the important job of preparing them for a successful High School experience as a year 8 Gifted and Talented Teacher.

The very best part about being a teacher is being in the privileged position to "make a difference" to the children in your care. I am passionate about fostering a child's self-esteem, encouraging them to take learning risks and celebrating every success along the way. My aim always: to empower children to reach their own potential.

NumberWorks’nWords has really helped my son in both his English and Maths, he is happy to go and comes back enthusiastic about what he has learnt. It has helped him at school immensely.

— Karen C

Friendly environment and seeing the results and confidence in my child is great.
