Hello everyone. I’m Helen Lloyd. Welcome to this course.

I’m originally from Norfolk in England but now I call New Zealand home.
I’m a trained visual art teacher with a BA in Visual Art and Art History and an MA in Museum and Gallery Education. I have worked for over twenty years as an educator in museums and galleries in the U.K. Russia, and New Zealand.

I am currently Learning Specialist Sector Capability for Te Pū Tiakai Mana Taonga the Association for Educators Beyond the Classroom in Aotearoa, and I am based at Te Papa Tongarewa the Museum of New Zealand.

Monika Kern

Tēnā koutou katoa, ngā mihi nui kia koutou.
Ko Monika Kern tōku ingoa.
He uri ahau nō Tiamana engari, e rua tekau ma wha ngā tau ahau i noho ki Aotearoa.
Kua roa te wā ahau e mahi kaiako ana, te āhua nei, mai i te wā o te mokonui.
Kei Te Papa Tongarewa ahau e mahi ana.
Nō reira, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou katoa.

Kia ora koutou, my name is Monika Kern, I grew up in Germany and have been calling Aotearoa New Zealand my home for almost 25 years.

I am a trained teacher and have been teaching for many years. Most recently I was the Education Manager at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds, and I am a past co-chair of Te Pū Tiaki Mana Taonga. Currently I am employed with Te Papa as a Learning Specialist for Te Pū Tiaki Mana Taonga.

I look forward to us all learning together in this course.
