Linda Westbrooke

Linda Westbrooke runs an Accelerated Literacy Programme for all ages at Waitoki School.

Some children work in small groups to boost their confidence and writing skills. Other children work together with personalised programs to meet their individual needs.
Linda incorporates the garden and animals in her teaching style, finding things to engage our students so that it’s fun to learn.
Building confidence and making gains, however small is the goal and its Linda’s mission to make this happen by finding different ways to engage our students.

Martina Dobbyn

Martina Dobbyn runs an Accelerated Math Programme for all ages at Waitoki School.

She works on showing children that there are different approaches to Math, by finding the way that works best for them and building their confidence. A positive outlook works wonders.

Everyone’s mind works differently and some children have even shown her different ways of tackling or looking at certain problems.
