I am originally from South Africa and grew up in Johannesburg. South Africa is well known for its natural beauty and its mineral wealth; it is a country of many languages but over two million of us speak English as our native language due to historical ties with Britain. Johannesburg is an economic and multicultural hub of Africa.

 

I obtained my BA with English and History as my majors from the University of the Witwatersrand in 1998. I then completed an Honours degree in English literature and began teaching English as a second language. I subsequently became a high school teacher of English as a first language (including literature, grammar, language, oral presentations and film).

 

While teaching, I obtained a Postgraduate Diploma in English education and wrote a television series on the language of advertising. I also worked for the education department at the district level as a moderator. I initiated the school leadership program and was involved in organizing events, counselling, mentoring and writing policy documents for the school.

 

During this period of time, I also researched developments in the study of the brain and their possible implications for education. My work at the school over seven years and my research led to my being accepted into the Mind, Brain and Education master’s program at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education.

 

I graduated in 2008 and arrived in China later that year. Before arriving at BNUZ, I worked as an English teacher and director of studies at a training centre in Wuxi for over two years. It was one of my childhood dreams to come to China and pursue my interest in the language, culture and history of this remarkable country. I am delighted to have the opportunity to live and work at BNUZ.
