Celeste joined Acorn Education as a teacher coach in January 2018. She has spent the last 10 years teaching in the Foundation Phase. Her work experience includes being Head of Foundation Phase, coordinating the school’s Extra-Mural Programme and facilitating Mathematics presentations at the AMESA Regional and National Conferences. She resonates with the adage that “Teaching is a work of Heart”.
Her professional interests currently focus on the development of NumberSense and reading comprehension at foundation level, as well as developing educational law and policies. She is currently completing her LLB. Celeste strongly believes that time is a currency and therefore resolutely advocates planning for lessons that provide learners with opportunities for practical, inquiry-based learning.
Celeste obtained a Diploma in Education as well as an Advanced Certificate in Education (majoring in Special Education and Learner Support) at North West University.
