MYP Individuals and Societies and Model UN Teacher
Stockholm International School
I began at Stockholm International School in the August of 2017 and am currently teaching Individuals and Societies in the MYP and part of the school Model UN team. This comes after having taught MYP English and being the subject leader for Individuals and Societies for the MYP and DP for a few years. I am proudly South African, and so are my two young boys, in spite of both of them being born in Stockholm. Before venturing north to Scandinavia, I taught at two private schools in Johannesburg for 11 years. I hold an undergraduate degree – Bachelor of Education from the University of KwaZulu-Natal and for my postgraduate degree, I received Honours in Leadership and Management in Education from the University of Johannesburg. I am currently tackling my masters through the University of Gothenburg where I am reading Education for Sustainable Development. I am a sports fanatic in particular in rugby, cricket, running, golf, tennis and football.
