What is the issue that is most important for you? What does your issue mean for you as a teacher, and the tamariki you teach?

The amount of administration and lack of non contact time to complete assessment and all the regulatory requirements.

What will it take to fix the issue you have identified?

More non contact time. In early childhood as a kindergarten head teacher I do not have office staff like the primary and secondary sector. I work 12 to 14 hour days and usually one day at the weekend.

When we fix your issue, what impact will that change have on you as a teacher, and the tamariki you teach?

I am hanging on by a thread to see what the result of this claim is. If the non contact time particularly for head teachers is not improved I will leave the profession. I am concerned about the long term impact on my health and well-being working 12-14 hour days.
