Dominique Unger

Room 4 Teacher (Yr 1/2)



General Information

Kia ora everyone,

I will be the teacher in room 4 this year. Please come and say hello and let me know what’s on top for you!

I grew up in the far north and have been living in Wellington for several years. My family originally comes from Austria and I grew up speaking German at home and English at school. I love gardening, cooking and nutrition, and spending time in nature. I own an axolotl named Princess Kowhai and live with a cat called Bianco.

It’s fair to say I have a love for animals and all things living. Hence why I studied biology which has given me an interest in teaching science to young children and getting them excited about protecting our environment. Coming from an early childhood background has also made me very passionate about learning through play and all it encompasses.

Please feel free to come to me if you have any questions. I look forward to working together with you this year!

Warm regards,
Miss Unger
