Year 2 Teacher

I am from Durban, a coastal city in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. I completed my schooling in Durban and then moved to Johannesburg to do my teacher’s training at Johannesburg College of Education. I qualified in 1993 and started my journey as an educator immediately after that. I have taught all year groups throughout the primary years and find it very difficult to pick a favourite year group. 

 

After teaching for 18 years, I really felt that I needed more tools and strategies to better equip me to teach children from all abilities and to have a more inclusive approach to my planning and teaching. I started my Honours Degree in Inclusive Education and completed that degree through the University of South Africa in 2014. I found that to be extremely valuable and it has given me a clearer insight into barriers that some children face in their learning, and it gave me practical ways in which to help them. I strongly believe in lifelong learning and am currently completing an online course to help identify children on the autistic spectrum and ways in which to help these children reach their potential.

I have spent the majority of my teaching years in South Africa and then had the opportunity to teach abroad. I have worked in Saudi Arabia, Russia and the UK. These opportunities further widened my views and teaching methodologies, and I feel extremely privileged to have worked and lived in such culturally diverse countries. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to come back to the Middle East and I am very excited to embark on my adventure at Nord Anglia International School Al Khor.

My passions are my work and my family. Most of my family still live in South Africa. I have 9 nieces and nephews whom I adore and I love spending holidays with them. I have an amazing 21-year-old son who is studying and working in Canada.

I look forward to working closely with you and your child for the remainder of this academic year.
