I was born in Pretoria, South Africa. I'm a qualified teacher with 15 years teaching experience and counting. I received my Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Pretoria and my Honors degree from the University of South Africa specializing in Educational Management. I have taught different subjects and different grades up until Year 8. I was also the Head of Department for Natural Science in my home country. In 2016 we moved to Shunyi, Beijing. Prior to joining BSB I worked at another international school in Beijing where I was a Grade 3 Homeroom teacher.
I am a positive person who commands mutual respect, conscientiousness and punctuality. I encourage learners to develop their talents and skills to the maximum of their ability to equip them for their future in a global society. I am constantly broadening my teaching experience to further my career. Education is one of my passions in life and I strive to stimulate the interest of the children and their inquisitive minds.
Family time is very important to me and in my free time I like to spend it with my husband and our daughter. We love to explore new places in China, go for walks in all the beautiful gardens and also to travel. I'm looking forward making new memories with my class of this year.
