I have to start my day with a prayer and then I can work in peace the whole day. I enjoy cooking for the little ones. I am motivated to open my own restaurant one day. I enjoy cooking colourful popcorn, rainbow cakes and porridge, because the children love colourful things. I also clean as far as I go, because a clean environment is important for everyone, especially for the kids because they touch and play with everything in their surroundings.

Tutor of the Red Dinosaurs class
Hailing from dusty townships of Rustenburg in Northwest to Gauteng my aim was to become a bookkeeper. I studied to become an accountant, but I realised that my passion and interest are in teaching. As a warm cheerful woman I can be counted on to bring sunshine into other people’s life, taking teaching as my professional career is interesting as I had an opportunity to inspire, build and shape-up a child. I love to socialise with people around me and often adapt in art pursuits like dancing and drawing. I enjoy drawing.
