Kia Ora,

My name is Charlotte Buchanan and I have been teaching at Glenbrook School for six years. I have a Bachelor of Education and Postgraduate in Applied Practice – Digital and Collaborative Learning. I live in Pukekohe with my partner, Dan and son, Cullen. Together, we enjoy music, the outdoors, spending time at the beach and with whānau.

I believe it is important to set students up to succeed in an ever-changing world. We can do this by giving students opportunities to develop their skills, take risks and learn from their FAILs in a range of different situations. I have high, yet achievable expectations for my students who I am committed to providing the support they need to achieve their potential. Seeing their faces when they get those ‘lightbulb’ moments makes my role so rewarding. While these rich learning experiences and opportunities are going on, it is important to have a laugh along the way and make sure we don’t take ourselves too seriously!

I look forward to the journey I will share with Te Moana in 2021.
