Position

Grade 1 Teacher

Qualifications

Diploma in Education through the Port Elizabeth College of Education and University of Port Elizabeth

Experience

I have been teaching for the past 20 years. During the course of my career, I have been given the opportunity to teach Kindergarten through to Grade Three at various schools in South Africa.

I have been exposed to various curriculums and challenges which have helped me to grow a firm base in my chosen profession. The most note worthy of which was the implementation and rolling out of an English medium curriculum for ESL learners, in an entirely Afrikaans-based school. This was met with great success.

We spent the last ten years living in Johannesburg, South Africa, where I was Grade Head for Grade Two at The Kings College and Preparatory School.
