Jen Prior

Qualified Teacher

Kia ora, my names Jennifer I have been at Flanshaw since 2018. I am a provisional registered teacher. I was born in New Zealand and raised in West Auckland. I am passionate about children as I believe that every child is unique and should be treasured, loved and valued. For me what draws me to a career in educating children, is instilling in them the value of their mana (power), so they can go forth with confidence knowing that they have a place in the world.
