Inspiring active learners and leaders who make a difference

Maria Trotter

Room 12

Kia ora koutou,
My name is Maria Trotter and I am excited to be joining the Pinehill whānau
and to bring my teaching experience to the team. I started teaching in 2022
after graduating from the University of Canterbury.
I have recently returned to Auckland after living in Dunedin for nearly 4
years and am enjoying being close to my family and friends. I enjoy being in
nature, whether on a walk or in the garden, and I’m an avid reader.
I am passionate about maths and science, as well as encouraging strong communication and inclusivity
among my ākonga. In my teaching practice, I strive to encourage each student to discuss their learning
and be active members in their own learning journey. I believe this fosters a greater sense of belonging
within the classroom, which leads to happy and engaged students.
I can’t wait to get to know everyone at school and the Pinehill community!
