Our Teachers


Joji Cropped

Jojimae Sobrepena.

Hi, my name is Jojimae. I am the head teacher at Kinderhaven Glenfield. I am a fully qualified registered teacher. I gained my Bachelor of Education with Specialisation in Early Childhood Education in 2005. I worked for five years in the Philippines and migrated here in New Zealand with my family in 2011.

Early childhood education is my life choice and passion whether it is inside or outside the school premises. I have always been a happy teacher in my years of playing and having fun, learning and growing together with a bunch of children.

Charlotte Andersson.

Hej! My name is Charlotte and I work here at Kinderhaven as a teacher. I am from Stockholm, Sweden and I moved here to New Zealand the end of 2015. I have a masters degree in Education Social Studies from Stockholm University, and I was working as a primary teacher in Stockholm before I moved here.

I am looking forward to learning about New Zealand education, curriculum and culture, and to get to know the families and children at Kinderhaven.
