ACHIEVEMENTS
I became Deputy–Principal at Masizake Secondary School in 2002. I served in that capacity until November 2015. During that time, I also acted as Principal for two years. I was actively involved in the district sports committee, and served as deputy chairperson for a number of years. I specialised in cross-country, and several of my athletes achieved success at the National Cross-Country Championship.
During my time at GAHS, I saw the school growing from a mere 34 learners to its current 210. Our staff increased from 7 to 23 educators in 3 years. The school has successfully been established and the new building with its 10 classrooms, hall, laboratory and media centre will be completed in March 2017.

The sports field was completed in 2015 and the school has hosted a number of sporting events. My staff team and I are now able to offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities in keeping with my philosophy of holistic development of our learners.

EDUCATOR PHILOSOPHY
I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. It is my desire as an educator to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas. There are three elements that I believe are conducive to establishing such an environment, (1) the teacher acting as a guide, (2) allowing the child's natural curiosity to direct his/her learning, and (3) promoting respect for all things and all people.
It is my desire to create a second home from home, where learners have the love, trust and support from all Glen Austin’s stakeholders, partnering with them to help learners to achieve their highest dream.
