I am a qualified primary and high school teacher, with about three years experience in the industry. I absolutely love learning new things and pushing my own knowledge limits. So I decided to tackle the world of coding – without going for formal training – and to share this experience as I go along.
As teaching is a 24/7 type of job – with after-hours filled with extra-curricular’s, marking and lesson preparation – I decided to give myself a bit more time for this new endeavour by leaving my full-time teaching position.
When I started this journey, I tutored primary and high school learners on weekdays between 12:00 and 18:00, while I used my mornings for learning and practising website development and design. In April this year, I started working as a junior web developer. My long term plan is to start my own business. I am blogging about everything that I learn to help others who are planning to follow a similar path.
