Meet the Owner: Leanne Stewart
Kia ora! My name is Leanne Stewart, owner of the Rotorua branch of NumberWorks'nWords. I am of Ngai Tahu, Rangitane and Te Ati Awa descent but grew up in Palmerston North, moving to Hastings for my first teaching job in 1997.
In the 22 years since, I have spent time in almost each facet of primary education, having taught Year 2-Year 8, holding roles as a class teacher, team leader, Deputy Principal, biotechnology teacher, teacher aide and specialist teacher for an ASD student. During this time I completed more personal learning in Dyslexia and Specific Learning Difficulties, and later, a years learning in Gifted Education.
I love learning new things to support my students so that I can provide the best possible learning experiences that I can. Outside of teaching, I have a family of teenagers and weekends are spent immersed in dance, cricket and being a mum-Uber! In my spare time, I love walking in the Redwoods, running at the lakes (when my knee cooperates!), going to the gym and dance class.
I look forward to meeting you at the free assessment and talking about how I can support your child as well.
