I am a dedicated teacher who specialises in FET (English) and Senior Phase (Life Orientation) and am also a highly successful Fitness and Conditioning coach for Field Hockey. I hold a certificate in ‘Teaching English as a Foreign Language’ (TEFL) and ‘Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages’ (TESOL), a PGCE from UNISA, and a Master’s degree in Sports Exercise Technology from the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT).
My passion for education and learning has been honed in the past 19 years at high school level and during my time in the private sector as a business owner and manager of LD Fitness Consultants. I believe I bring a level of expertise to the classroom and sports field that is not easily matched. With my passion for people and learning, is evident in the success of the various athletes and teams I have had the pleasure of coaching and training in various sporting codes and particular, field hockey. I am an educator who is naturally committed to excellence, having competed very successfully in road running (marathons) and mountain biking for a number of years.
I bring a unique dynamic to the role in which I am appointed with my natural leadership, focus on standards and solid work ethic. Currently I teach English (First Additional Language) to non-native english speakers as well as Life Orientation to senior secondary school students at Curro Roodeplaat, a private IEB school.
