When my dancing career came to an end due to injury I decided to follow my next passion which was working with children. I went to London and studied at AMI in Hampstead. I returned to South Africa and gained experience working at The Willows Montessori school in Bordeaux, before opening my own school which I had for 17 years. There are many things I love about Montessori, but as a directress it gives me great pleasure to see the children’s faces light up with pride when they realise they can do it themselves!! This is not only empowering the child, but gives them such a boost in confidence!
