Jamaya began her teaching career in Otara, South Auckland followed by a stint in Wellington before moving back to her hometown and taking a position at OIS in 2008.
Having taken time out for family Jamaya returned to Oamaru Intermediate in 2013 to the Technology department. As Technology team leader Jamaya enjoys the hands-on nature of this curriculum area and thrives on seeing students overcome barriers to succeed. She is passionate about students developing self-confidence before they start their High School journey.
Jamaya organises both the Kapahaka and Pasifika groups at Oamaru Intermediate, and would love (needs) to have involvement from parents!
In her downtime she enjoys watching movies, tucking up with a good book, going to the gym and involving herself in her children’s activities.
