Early in life my first career choice was to become a lawyer. But after meeting a teacher who denounced prejudice and racism and who believed in equity and social justice – causes that were very important to me at the time – I decided that I wanted to become a teacher. I felt strongly that teachers make a significant difference in children’s lives. Most importantly, they influence life chances and contribute to nation building and other important societal outcomes.
It is with pleasure that I share with you some of those moments in this section of the website.
