About me

Location Johanesburg, Gauteng, South Africa
Introduction I started blogging while I was studying at Rhodes University, 2010. I had just started reading for a Masters in Education and I was struggling with writing. I mostly struggled because I didn't like academic writing (I'm still in two minds about it seeing as I'm seriously contemplating a Phd).At the time I was also writing for the Daily Dispatch (a newspaper in the Eastern Cape) and I enjoyed that because it allowed me to write about issues beyond my studies. Now I'm a teacher and I try to write a blog at least once a week. Most of my topics focus on my experiences in the classroom and what I think about living in Cape Town. I also write for the Mail and Guardian Thought Leader so what you read on this blog might appear on that blog as well.Leave a comment before you move on to the next blog or get distracted on twitter.
