Meet the Team
Room 9 Teacher (Y5/6)
I’m Jamie Hastilow and I am stoked to be the teacher in Room 9 here at Pokeno School
About me: Originally from a small community in the mighty Manawatu, I moved to Wellington in 2005 to complete a Bachelor of Science in Geography.
In 2010 I left on my OE, spending 18 months working in London and seeing the sites of Europe. I lived in Melbourne for a further two years before a cheap airfare to Kathmandu inspired me to sell my things and get back on the road. Time spent in Nepal, India and a 6 month job stint in Thailand surrounded by kids who had very little, inspired me to seek a career in education. In 2015 I returned to Wellington, and University, completing a post graduate diploma in Education (primary).
I feel very lucky to be in a job where I can share my own love of learning and encourage and inspire so many young learners to reach the very best of their potential.
I look forward to working with such a great group of students and a community who really do embody the Pokeno Way!
