“The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery” – Mark van Doren

I grew up in a small town in South Africa, and went on to study my BA at the University of Pretoria. I completed my PGCE through the University of South Africa, which is when my passion for teaching was ignited. My husband and I have just completed 2 years of teaching in Cambodia, and we are extremely excited to be living in Dubai.

I have a passion for the outdoors, and my hobbies include a range of sports, as well as cooking and baking!

When I saw the vision and mission of SISD, I immediately knew it was the school for me. I have a passion for inquiry based teaching, and I cannot wait to see my professional growth in the years ahead.
