Teacher's top award for work on structured literacy

From Nine To Noon, 9:35 am on 4 December 2023

Each year the National Excellence in Teaching Awards honour four early childhood, primary and secondary school educators from around the motu.

This year Nga Hau e Wha Resource Teacher of Learning and Behaviour Amie Roberts won both the Apple Award, and a Teacher Mentor Special Award, for her work in implementing Structured Literacy into schools around Wellington. 

Her own journey into specialising in teaching structured literacy came from watching her own son struggle to read. She tells Kathryn her story.
