Physical Science teacher-St. Mary's DSG

Biography

I have been an educator for more than 30 years, teaching both Life Sciences and Physical Sciences to Grades 8-12 high school students in South Africa. I currently teach at an independent school for girls and I am committed to empowering young women to follow and act on their passion for the sciences, to challenge gender and racial stereotypes and help shift the male-scientist paradigm that has existed for so long. I believe that inquiry-based learning, stimulating curiosity and continuously re-inventing my teaching methods is the golden thread to achieve this.
