Juanita Steenkamp (1)

Year 3 Teacher

BA, BEd, Masters degree, TEFL

I started my teaching career in 2005 at a private school in South Africa. It all started as I wanted to coach sport but got asked to be a Teaching Assistant in a class whilst finishing my Bachelor’s Degree after one year of being a TA, I stepped into class as a Homeroom teacher, and never looked back.

I completed my first year Psychology degree through the University of Pretoria in South Africa and then switched to a Bachelor’s degree in Education through the University of South Africa. I also have a Master’s degree in Educational Management from the University of Essex and a TEFL certificate. 

I relocated to China in 2015 where I started my teaching career at a bilingual school. To teach at BSB was always a dream and it became a reality in 2020.  It is an honour to be part of an organisation that believes in the students and the continuous development of the staff.  I believe that there is no limit to what we can achieve in life and we need to raise and teach our children to believe the same. BE AMBITIOUS!

I love life! I live for each moment and teach my son to do the same. I have a son and family time is very important to us. We enjoy horse riding, riding our bicycles and being active. We also do not miss the opportunity to read a great book, our favourite books are from Dr. Seuss. I am a great sports enthusiast and enjoy time outdoors as well as next to the sport field greatly.

The best moments in life are the ones we do not plan.
