No formal Teacher Training, I work in social media, am a webmaster with a number of websites and blogs, and have a background and extensive experience in criminal and civil law, which I have recently returned to after a 5 year absence. I am a homeschooling mom who opted for homeschooling as a result of circumstances in our country. I have not looked back. I have attended many online courses to assist me in my educational journey. My materials are utilized through countries of Africa as an alternative to formal educational publications which are prohibitively expensive! I am fond of compiling unit studies and thematic units which I am able to adapt and use for each of the three children, now 6, 11 and 13 respectively. I make extensive use of public domain resources and include references to reputable websites for extension exercises and lesson plans. I am a published author.
I believe in every child developing at his or her own pace. I gently but continuously encourage where my child seems to be battling a little, and where there is a clear interest and understanding, I am at full throttle :)
I have received a number of website awards, and been the recipient of numerous awards and reviews for my research and work.
I have a business background in property and law. I focus now on research, books and my business as a Social Media Coach. I am a perpetual student of life.
I have started researching and writing about children with learning difficulties and childhood development and have a number of works available. My husband is a professional athlete manager/agent and we are also small-scale farmers, as well as wildlife and nature conservationists.
