Biography

Ko te mihi tuatahi ka tuku aumihi ki ngā kaitiaki o tēnei whenua e noho nei tātou. Tēnā koutou Ngāti Kahu.

E whai whakaaro ana ahau ki te ahurea, ki te tuhonotanga ki tēnei whenua, ka mihi ake ki tēnei hononga o tātau ki te mana whenua a Ngāti kahu, ko te manako ia ka tū kaha, ka tū maia, ka tū pakari tō tāua hononga hai ngā rangi e haere ake nei. Ka mihi ki te kauheke kaumātua o te awa, o ōnamata, o īnamata, o ānamata

Tēna koutou katoa

Ko Tauranga Te Moana

Ko Wairoa Te Awa

No Peterehema Ahau

Ko Maslin Toku Whanau

Nō reira, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou katoa.

Peter is the Programme Leader of the Graduate Diploma of Teaching (Secondary). He has been involved at BTI for over 10 years teaching across School of Teacher Education programmes and offshore in Tonga. In addition to leading the Secondary Teacher Education programme, Peter also contributes as a member of the Academic Board, Research Committee and is current Chair of the Ethics Committee.

Peter is passionate about student teacher and teacher identity. Believing that in understanding the agency that God has placed within their lives that teachers can released to ‘teach who they are’ and make a transformational difference in the contexts that they are called to teach. He views education from a holistic perspective that seeks to create a context in which the learner can flourish in order to release their present and eternal potential to support their community to flourish.

He has particular research interests the theology and philosophy of education and the formation of identity in Initial Teacher Education. His current research foci looks at the formation of digital identity and the impact of COVID-19 on Initial Teacher Education. Peter’s research interest forms the basis of his PhD study through AUT, with his thesis looking at how the digital identity of student-teachers is formed within the context of practicum experience.

Peter’s secondary teaching in the Social Sciences was characterised by creativity, recognition of students as individuals, a commitment to learning for all, and a commitment to Māori students learning in mainstream settings. He is also committed to Holocaust education in Aotearoa New Zealand and involved with research and PLD in this area with the Holocaust Centre of New Zealand.

As a member of the BTI secondary teaching team Peter has been proactive in establishing deep working relationships with our local kura, Te Wharekura o Mauao and seeking to work out ways in which Te Tiriti o Waitangi can be lived out as ‘mana ōrite’ and in a pedagogy of critical hope in educational contexts.
