I have been involved in education in South Africa and the USA for over 30 years, teaching 3 year olds to 12 years olds in Public, Government and Montessori schools. Having been involved in training, teaching and administration – I find that being actively involved in the classroom remains the ultimate highlight!
I teach, because I acknowledge that inspiring a thirst for knowledge in my students is the first step to leading them on the road to a fulfilling life. I believe that my efforts as an Educator will be worthwhile and meaningful, if they result in the ability to think constructively and to think well. I desire for us all to live each day accompanied by an independently derived sense of purpose, i.e. one which is driven by a value system free of prejudice and dominated by a wish to help make this a better world for all.
