Experience

During my PGCE, I spent exceptionally valuable time doing my teaching practicals at both Groote Schuur High School and Constantia Waldorf. These two experiences, which were very different by nature, gave me a well-rounded eye-opening perspective on education.
Following from my PGCE, I dived into a variety of work avenues, predominantly focusing on ways in which I could merge my passions for education with my longest-standing passion for Nature.
In my time with Plant the Seed, I have become increasingly fascinated in supporting educators to drive social, environmental and valuable change among their learners through the form of curriculum creation, alignment and professional development sessions.

I maintain an open-mind to all things ‘education’ and strive to be a supporting component in a growing ecosystem of change-makers.
