Every child deserves a champion

An adult who will never give up on them

Who understands the power of connection

And insists that they become the best that they can possibly be

Dr Rita Pierson

That person is me

My name is Adriana.

I am a child education advocate and I am Child Advocacy NZ.

I am a fully registered, qualified Resource Teacher of Learning and Behaviour with over 20 years of experience working in NZ schools.

Every child has the right to access quality education

No child should face barriers when attending our schools

Parents should not have to struggle to get their child into a school

But they do

Together we can break down barriers by building a network of bridges through the power of connection

My mission is to empower parents to become champions for their child
