Teaching Across A Double Decade



As children, we are imaginative and dwell in a limitless world of pure potentiality. Our aspirations are inspired by the people and environment around us. Our dreams allow us to believe that we can achieve anything when we grow up. They often point us towards a journey paved with goals and targets, ultimately leading to a career path that will satisfy our hopes and ambitions. This is the story of a passionate teacher, a woman who has followed her dreams to reach a place in her life where she feels fulfilled.

Welcome to Grade 11 IB English – What to Expect and How Young Scholarz Can Help

Grade 11 and 12 IB is an exciting time as you delve deeper into the subjects you are passionate about (despite the couple of SL’s you are not so keen on!) and move closer towards your journey to university.
