I’m from South Africa

Do you have a favorite quote?
plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose” an épigramme from Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr.

What is good teaching for you?
Good teaching is developing good relationships between students and pupils. Good relationships foster independent learning in a safe environment. 

What is it about your favorite city that fascinates you?
I find myself more and more attracted to nature. So many old cities have been modernised to the point that they become generic and lose their individuality. Few modern cities are unique enough to hold any attraction for me.
