Kia Ora, my name is Emma Collins and 2021 is my first year teaching at Te Horo School. I have been teaching for 9 years and thoroughly enjoy my job. Two years ago, I bought a house in Paraparaumu Beach and decided that I would like to work in the Kapiti Coast community. Te Horo School appealed to me because it was a country school with a smaller number of students. My hobbies include reading, spending time with my friends and family and walking my dog Silas. Silas is a rescue dog and I adopted him just before lockdown. He is a boxer mastiff cross and is 5 years old. He is 45kg but a big softie at heart.
