Her passion is to see people rediscover themselves as competent and ‘gifted’ learners and teachers, when they know their true identity in Christ. Her past experience in tertiary education has knitted her well in what she is called to do. Vaitulu serves as a teacher trainer on both the Foundation in Education and the school of Early Childhood Education since 2012.
