I started teaching in 1976 and retired from active class duty on 31 December 2017. I have also been actively involved in local affairs, affording me the opportunity to serve a wide range of sport- and community- based organisations. I was a member of the LGNF (Local Government Negotiation Forum) just before the dawn of the new South Africa and served as a local government councillor for the ANC from 1985 to 2000. I then became a member of the Executive Council of the Makana Municipality in 2000. I served as chairperson of the Local Economic Development Committee until 2005.
After I took a break from local politics I enrolled as a part-time student at our local university. (Rhodes) I have successfully completed an ACE in Technology Education, a B.Ed (Hons) degree in ICT and Technology education and a M.Ed in Science Education.
My main interest is developing e-lessons for teachers. I am really passionate about the potential of ICT in education and would dearly appreciate any assistance and guidance in this regard.
I have served as a part-time lecturer for ACE students in Technology Education, Life – Orientation and ICT Education. At present I am a part-time lecturer for the B Ed ICT group in the Rhodes Education Department. My latest interest is a website initiated to assist Senior PhaseTechnology Learning Area teachers in South Africa.
My latest craze is the founding of a small company called COPFORTAL in the hope of assisting in-service teachers to enhance their ICT skills.
