Our dedicated staff
I am a father of two bright little girls and a passion to help wherever I can. I started with the company in 2019 at Ridgevale tuck shop in the mornings and afternoon at the West Rand Study Centre Witpoortjie. 2021 I am teaching the Gr. R children at Turtle Den Pre-primary School making sure they are ready to leave the nest and proceed into the big world. I am creative, a good cook and pay attention to every little detail when it comes to the children. My hobbies are reading, drawing cooking and baking.
I started in 2011 in the baby class and got an opportunity to work with the bigger children. I worked in the 3-4 year class and later moved on to the 4-5 year children. I left for 6 years but realized this is my passion and I need to work with children again. I enjoy working in a group to share new ideas and to work alongside my co-workers. To work with the little ones inspire me a lot as we learn more and more. I took an oath to make a difference in children’s lives and to make sure that they have a good foundation and bright future ahead. I enjoy exercise, dancing and singing.
I joined the company in January 2006 at Turtle Den Pre-primary School with the 2 year old babies. I love to work with children to make a difference in their lives. To see how they progress and change into bright confident individuals. I worked myself up until I ended up as a Manageress at the Pre-primary School, in 2017 I was moved to the West Rand Study Centre Witpoortjie to work with the aftercare children. I had the Grade R-1 class, working with the children was challenging but I enjoyed learning alongside the kids daily. 2020 I came back to Turtle Den Pre-primary School, where my passion lay. I strive to provide a safe environment for my kids and ensure they feel at home as that is how we build trust between tutors and children.
I am a loving hard working person. I care a lot about what I do for others, especially the children in my care. I enjoy being creative and thinking outside the box. I am an open minded person, I enjoy working with my children in my class and caring for them. I am married with a little boy of my own. My hobbies are watching movies.
I enjoy learning new things in life and taking on challenges. My goal: Is to put more effort into my work, love my kids and colleagues, respect them and work together as one. I will always do more than what is expected of me. My hobby: I enjoy crafting objects out of recyclable items.
