3. Which settings do you currently work in? I work at Curro Sitari in the morning and at Et Al Centre in the afternoons. I work with children in grades 1-5 who need additional support in Afrikaans, English and Mathematics.

4. What do you enjoy most about your job? I enjoy working individually with a child, supporting them to achieve their full potential. It is a great feeling to witness a child experiencing a “lightbulb moment” – when they really understand the work for the first time.
