When I was in Grade 12 my dad once said, “my son, you’re going to be a teacher one day”. Well which high school learner dreams of becoming a teacher one day? Not me. So, I had no passion or dreams about becoming a teacher (yet) and just wanted to get done with school ASAP.

About two years after school I started to develop a passion for working with young people and I became a youth worker/youth minister for four years. I worked at Living Word Brummeria and at Every Nation Tshwane. During this time my love for the youth grew marginally and I wanted to invest more into the lives of our future world leaders. I enjoyed building relationship with teenagers and children who had questions about life and who searched for more in life than themselves.

It was one morning at Hoërskool Waterkloof while we were ministering there when I sensed a strong calling to pursue a career in education. The idea crossed my mind before, but this was something different. After a few days later I applied at UNISA to study education, in 2019 I started my first academic year and in February 2020, I received the wonderful opportunity to join the team at EduExcellence Lynnwood as the Intermediate Geography and Global Perspectives Teacher.

I am full of excitement for what the future holds for my career. This is so much more than just a job for me, this is a privilege to pursue my passion while doing it as a job. Education is one of the most powerful weapons to change the world like mister Mandela said. I am a firm believer of that.

Outside being a teacher, I am a freelance drummer and a sport enthusiast.
