Fayth Hansen
Principal  And Teacher

Hi, I am Fayth. 

I have been teaching since 2006 and I love my job! I have had the privilidge of teaching on many different platforms and with many amazingly gifted learners.  

Teaching here has been my biggest challenge and definitely my most rewarding.  Kids are the future, when we realise that the future sits before us, the responsibility is on us to raise caring children who think critically and have learned to learn.  In this way we should have healthy, heardworking adults who love and care for their community.

Teacher

I am Anke.

I have been working at Shelanti since the end of 2020. I am a student teacher, in my final months of qualifying. Even though I am still new to teaching, I have been surrounded by a teaching environment for years. Teaching at Shelanti has birthed a passion for gifted students in me and made me realize that there are different ways to approach teaching to accommodate different students, and help them reach their potential by working hard thinking differently.  Teaching is not a profession; its personal.

Dear Learners and Parents,

I was born in Durban, number eleven out of twelve children.  There were so many of us that my mother ran out of names.  My name was chosen from a liturgical calendar with saints names.

My first school uniform was bought before Christmas. I did not want to take it off after it was purchases.  The day I learned to read, and understood what I was reading, is the day I joined the library and proceeded to ready more than half the books in the entire library.  Dictionaries were the coolest books ever.  I taught myself French and a couple of other languages.

Travelling is another way of learning.  My first international trip was to England at the age of twenty.  Since then I have lived in USA, Switzerland, Namibia, Mali, Guinea (Conakry), Tanzania, Zambia and DR Congo.  I have also been on holiday to a bunch of other countries and the travelling excitement starts from the packing and being in the airport.

Because of some of the countries we lived in, my sons were homeschooled until grade 8.  I also spent a couple of years tutoring.  I re-did my matric in 2014 and started my Bachelor of Education through Unisa. 

I do enjoy passing on the knowledge because knowledge is power and everyone should be empowered. Education is not only about school but all the different experiences life offers.  We all have a role to play.  Buckle up and enjoy the adventure of finding your role.
