Life before Saint Ronan's
I grew up in the beautiful South African winelands, in a village called Stellenbosch.  My best memories of school are of being outside, climbing mountains, canoeing down rivers, swimming in streams and playing sport with my friends.  I moved to the UK with my husband in 2002 and we spent our first six years in London teaching in a Prep school.  I taught Year 2 and Reception during these years.

Roles at School
I am Head of N&PP and Class teacher to the Otters on a Friday and the Hedgehogs on a Monday.

Away from the Classroom
I love scuba-diving and any sport related to water!  I love sunshine and sand and try to spend as much time as possible with my family, running through waves or exploring in rock pools.  Dale and I met on the Orange River while doing a six day canoe trip and this is still one of our favourite activities.  I love to travel and experience new cultures and places. Being a teacher has allowed this love to become real and it is wonderful being able to bring my experiences to my classroom.  Recently I fed stingrays at Struisbaai Harbour in South Africa and it was glorious to show my Reception class the clip of this during their ‘Sea’ topic.
