    Mahuika Mahuika, the keeper of fire possesses many traits such as kaitīaki/guardianship, responsible, insightful, long fuse/patient, protector, fierce, social good. These same traits can guide us online. #belikemahuika


    Māui possesses qualities like playfulness, innovative, adaptable, growth mindset, risk-taker, curiosity, problem solver, crafty, goal-oriented, active pursuit, bug fixer and collaborator. #belikemāui

    How do you learn best? Are you more like Mahuika or Māui? Why? Be brave, dive in and share a few sentences about yourself in the comments section below, so we can get to know each and learn from one another -tuakana–teina.

          I think I am more of a Maui, I like to learn through play and experimenting.

            I'm definitely more of a Mahuika. I totally admire my Maui students though and think I need a bit more risk-taking in my teaching practice.

              I am more Mahuika than Maui. I would like to think I could be more like Maui.

                I think both are as important as each other- the credentials both Mahuika and Maui complement each other and I believe that as a teacher in a diverse learning environment- I need both to allow me to be resilient and confident.

                  I am learn like both as I  like to know about things first before I try it. But I definitely try new things - hands-on after gaining new knowledge so that I understand things better.

                    My Mahuika is there to keep my Maui spirit in line. Her mauri keeps me grounded to be able to be a free, playful risk taker.

                        80% Mauhika, 20% Maui

                          I think I am 80% Maui, I lose interest quickly when things are not fun, creative and have my mind churning. I believe I have Mahuika traits also. At times I need to follow a sequence, if I get confused or don't understand I can get a bit of an attitude. So I do need to play it safe some of the time.
