William Yeats said, “Education is not filling a bucket, but lighting a fire.” Every learner possesses unique abilities and talents. My mission as their teacher is to build on their strengths, inspire them and awaken their passion for learning and life.

I graduated from The University of Pretoria in 2018 with a Bed degree in Further Education and Training. After graduating I ventured to China to teach English. Since being back I have taught Grade 4 English, worked as marketing manager at a motor dealership and am now a proud member of the EduExcellence family.

My goal is to teach my students how to think, not what to think. The subjects I teach (English and life Orientation) allow me to incorporate creative expression and critical thinking into every lesson. The minds I shape have the potential to change the world, and I love being able to learn from them as much as they learn from me.

During school holidays I enjoy scuba diving, hiking and falling asleep with a book in my hand.
