    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 am definitely more like Mahuika.. I like to do everything in order- step by step.

        My learning style is probably a bit of both - Mahuika and Maui

            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.
