I graduated from the University of South Africa with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education (BEd), specialising in English and Math. I also received my Postgraduate degree at the same university majoring in Educational Management. 

I thoroughly enjoy working with children and seeing their growth and development makes me extremely happy. Throughout my teaching career, I wanted to develop my skills to become a better teacher so that I will be able to enrich my students with more knowledge daily. It is my belief that each child can accomplish all of their dreams if someone believes in them and if they believe in themselves. I wish that one day I would be a principal and have my own school so that I will be able to break the system of poverty through education. Thus, education is extremely important and dear to me. I would love to see many people become successful through a dynamic education system that works for all and targets all age groups.  

Working at an international school has given me endless possibilities to extend, broaden and  explore the minds of students. I have been teaching for the past seven years and it has been incredible thus far. I have achieved so much in terms of experience and I have developed myself internally and externally. It has been rewarding and I am immensely proud of all the achievements. BSB Shunyi is rated one of the very best and top schools in Beijing and I will use this platform to share my knowledge and also learn more in order to develop myself further.  

I always knew that I wanted to teach abroad and travel the world. One of the best decisions of my life was making the choice to work in China. Life in China is amazing. From learning how to make dumplings, eating at my favorite Chinese restaurants and traveling to cities such as Shenzhen and Harbin and many more, I am amazed and astonished at the life in China and the way things are done. I enjoy making new friends, traveling to different countries and exploring different cities and experiencing different cultures. One of my interests is cooking and entertaining friends. I love to inspire people to be the best that they can be and to aspire to become a great leader  in the future.
