Headmaster at Situla Eldoraigne Campus
After qualifying as an educator, specializing in education for learners with individual educational needs in my fourth year, at the University of the Western Cape, I started my teaching career at a mainstream school where I’ve worked as an educator for two years.
I then accepted a teaching post at a centre for learners with cerebral palsy and spent the next five years there. This was truly where my love and passion for working with learners experiencing educational challenges was confirmed. I will always be grateful for this opportunity I received and for the insight and valuable experience I gained during these five years that I decided to continue my journey as an educator working with learners experiencing challenges with learning.
After these five years I was fortunate to be appointed principal of another school for learners with individual educational needs where I spent the next twelve years. Yet another major learning curve. Here I had the opportunity to work with the Department of Education, the Governing Body of the school, architects, quantity surveyors and builders to build a new school for our learners. This was the ultimate. After twelve amazing years my family relocated to Durban.
In Durban I once again joined a school for learners with cerebral palsy and autism. I worked here for the next seven years just gaining more experience of the needs in education. After these seven years we moved to Pretoria, Centurion.
Here I found a teaching post at an academy for remedial education. I was appointed deputy principal and worked with a team with a vast variety of expertise, sharing information and broadening our horizons to the benefit of our learners. After twelve unbelievable years I believe I made the final change in my career.
I moved on to join the Situla team. I feel blessed to be part of such a fabulous team. I trust that we will go from strength to strength helping and educating the children who have been placed in our care.
