Dear Lara, Thank you for the time you spent with me and the students last Thursday. What I deeply appreciated was your willingness to work with the kids  and me as a team; I enjoyed that intensely and so did most of the students. The instant feedback I got was that the students enjoyed what we did immensely.  Most of all what this brings home to me is that instead of just pontificating like many educationalists do with rhetoric, you were willing to do the “hard yards” with me like a soldier and really help teaching.  I have often thought about team teaching and what we did was dynamic.   Both me and the students of Year 11 Science look forward to our next team session in a few weeks time.  Can’t wait now LOL.  Cya then.  cheers Gary Senior Science...

I will never forget that Lara Meyer  you are my hero. Mereana came up and totally agreed you are a  treasure for our school. Lynette Wilson HOD Social Science Wairoa College...
