Kia Ora!
My name is Monique Shuker and I have just completed my first 2 years teaching here at Glenbrook School. I’m well accustomed to the area having attended Otaua Primary School and Waiuku College. I grew up on a dairy farm in Otaua so I spent a lot of time outdoors as a kid. It has always been a dream of mine to work out in a country school where I can continue to work in an open and green environment. What I love about Glenbrook School is all the exciting opportunities that students get and the endless choices to try new things. I love playing hockey and spending time with my family and friends. I look forward to another exciting and busy year with Team Haast in 2021.

Kia Ora!

I grew up in the Waikato in Te Awamutu. After high school I attended the University of Waikato. I completed my Graduate Diploma of Teaching in 2000 and have worked in a variety of different schools from small to very big. I have two beautiful girls – 7 year old Isla and 9 year old Niamh. We love to go on mini adventures together as a family, including mountain biking in Rotorua Redwood Forest, visiting Auckland Zoo and Miranda Hot Pools. I love being part of the learning journey of the fantastic Team Piwakawaka students at Glenbrook School. As Deputy Principal and Across School Kahui Ako Lead teacher for the Waiuku area, I also have the pleasure and excitement of visiting classes in other schools. I am very proud to work with the amazing and exceptional teaching staff at Glenbrook School, where relationships are key and learning is accelerated.
