Welcome to NZEI's New President - Judith Nowotarski

The New Zealand Educational Institute has a new president, and for the first time it will be represented by someone from the early childhood education sector.

Judith Nowotarski was voted into the role of national president at the NZEI’s annual meeting this week. She is the first person from the ECE sector to hold the role and will start her two-year term early next year.

Judith is head teacher at Hawera kindergarten and has a long association with the NZEI. With nearly 20 years of representation under her belt, Judith has sat on the institute’s early childhood national caucus and the kindergarten negotiating team among other roles.

She has also taken part in working groups with the NZEI and Ministry of Education including kindergarten job evaluations.

Judith says she believes the union is made stronger when everyone works together and that community was an important factor in education.

Auckland deputy principal Frances Guy will continue in her role as vice president.
