Maths teacher and swimming coach.
I was born in South Africa and grew up as an Afrikaans farm girl in central SA.
I love to be involve with different aspects of the school. I like diversity of our school, as I feel part of our diversity.
I am triathlete and part of the GB age group team. I have won the Europeans Championship in 2021 and 2022 came 4th in my age group at the World Championships in Abu Dhabi. This year I have qualified to go to Europeans and World Championships.
I wanted to be a Vet, but at my first year at University in South Africa I worked at a Saturday school for underprivileged kids and found my passion for teaching and changed careers.
As a young teacher in a previous school, I was explaining a concept to a pupil that just didn’t understand, so his friend interrupted me and said don’t worry Miss I will explain it to him, I can speak dumb.
