I am passionate about teaching, my drive has carried me since I began my journey as a teacher in 2017, I enjoy learning and discovering new techniques of how knowledge can be transferred. One of my greatest achievements was going aboard and being an ESL educator for a year in South Korea. My experience abroad inspired me to embrace diversity and different social and cultural experiences.

It is my life’s purpose to develop and uplift others and my mission is to take the time to understand the unique context of the communities, countries, and continents I serve and contribute toward sustainable development. Overall, I love working with children and learning about the psychological aspects of children and their development structures. I enjoy guiding learners to navigate their emotional and academic obstacles. I also enjoy physical development and use my training as an aerobics instructor to coach physical education in our foundation phase.

My primary aim is to become an effective and transformational educator, I want to ensure that I maintain the standard of high and quality education in the profession and to ensure that my duties and responsibilities are always executed with the highest level of integrity and quality.

I am passionate about continuous and sustainable development in my profession and in equipping myself with new teaching and learning strategies and providing learners with the quality education they deserve. This is the driving force behind my desire to start my own school. I have already started developing and implementing curriculums that are relevant to this era and incorporate science and philosophical studies. I also want to work within the domain of physical education for children.
