Ariane started her teaching career as an English teacher, teaching young learners in a training school. After an additional year teaching English to University students in Kazakhstan she returned to her native South Africa and completed her CELTA certification.
Ariane then decided to move to China to continue to pursue her teaching career and focus on young learners in schools, rather than in training schools. This led to a position as a PYP teacher in China, which allowed her the opportunity to truly engage with professional development and begin to understand and implement contemporary teaching practice and strategies that are in line with current best practice.
Ariane then undertook a PGCE and is currently doing a Masters in Education with a focus on inclusive and special education.
