Masterton Intermediate School

Tika Patrie

Classroom release teacher

I was born and raised in Canada. I moved to New Zealand permanently in 2013, after visiting this beautiful country a few years prior and now happily call it home. I have three amazing children: Ella is my 7 year old daughter, Brooks is my 5 year old son, and Finn is my 3 year old son. I taught part-time at Masterton Intermediate School in 2020 and I am excited to join the team on a full-time, permanent basis in 2022. I believe building positive relationships amongst staff, students, whānau, and the wider community is very important, and I look forward to nourishing my students’ learning experiences, and watching them blossom while reaching their full potential. My passions include photography, beach trips with my kids, diving into a great book, and enjoying the great outdoors. I also love watching NHL ice hockey on tv - Go Maple Leafs!
