Hita Foster shares her kaupapa of Te Marautanga o Aotearoa, inspiring educators and schools to draw ideas from Te Marautanga o Aotearoa when designing their own curriculum in their areas.
Foster is currently with Merivale School in Parkvale, Tauranga. She is a native speaker of Te Reo Māori and passionate about te reo and tikanga Māori. Teaching Māori as Māori is a given for Foster. She has previously worked in full immersion at Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Otepou. Throughout her life she has supported teachers and children in kōhanga reo, kura kaupapa, and wharekura, and no matter where she is, no matter what she is doing, she continues to promote her language and culture.
