I am from a beautiful country called South Africa. I’m sure you’re all wondering if I have a pet lion… or a giraffe in my back yard? The answer is, no I don’t, but I do have some Vervet monkeys visit my garden from time to time! South Africa is a wonderful place filled with beautiful animals and stunning views and beaches. I love travelling, walking on the beach, swimming, singing and playing music on my piano and guitar. I have been married for 11 years now and I have a sweet, energetic, wonderful daughter called Daisy Belle. I have been working with children for over 10 years now and I absolutely love it. I taught in Durban, South Africa first, then in Doha, Qatar, and finally before coming to DBS, I was at an Australian School in Sharjah, UAE! It’s my passion to see children thrive! I love to inspire children to be the best version of themselves that they can be. I believe in values such as respect, manners, honesty, and kindness to name a few. My heart is to see children take on their own values and mould and shape into a well-rounded, whole person. Best Moment In Teaching My favorite memories of teaching always come from the times I coached sport, especially coaching field hockey. I remember once when 2 of my students told me they were playing soccer at their local soccer club. They wanted me to come and watch. When I arrived, the look on their faces to see their teacher ACTUALLY came to watch them outside of school, was priceless!!! It was such an amazing feeling seeing their faces light up! I always enjoy the atmosphere and comradery during tournaments and games and loved supporting my students during their matches.
