I am a qualified teacher (Post Graduate Certificate in Education for Grade 7-12) with an undergraduate degree in Journalism and Honours in both Anthropology and Theology. I have been working in different roles in schools for nearly 10 years and found my absolute favourite thing to do was include coding and robotics in subjects such as Natural Science and English. After seeing my experience in this, at the school I worked at primarily, I was given the task of being sole Coding and Robotics teacher for grade 0-7! This means I have taught from grade 0-12 and have seen how coding and robotics, and Thinking Skills, can help equip the next generation for the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

I've stepped out of mainstream education to focus on homeschooling. My training and experience in teaching Thinking Skills and Coding and Robotics is helping me equip parents who want to take charge of their children(s) education. I'm here to empower families on their learning journey!
