Mrs. Julia Du Prees Grade: 1
Hi, I am the grade 1 teacher. I have a passion for children - especially for my grade 1's. This year I teach 25 children, 13 girls and 12 boys. I love to see how quickly they develop. By the end of the year they can read and write and also know about number sums.
I grew up in Switzerland and I'm Swiss by nationality - though my dad was a Hungarian and my mother German.
I did my nursing training in Switzerland, but when I emigrated to South-Africa I changed careers and became a teacher.
I'm married to Paul du Preez and I have two married children. My husband and I live on the Sedaven Campus. Sedaven is tranquil and peaceful. I love the nature that surrounds us every day.
My current teaching method is to a great extent supported by the use of technology. I use the interactive white board frequently. This really helps the children to learn faster and they just like being involved through this medium.
Favourite Bible verse
The Bible verse which I like most is James 1:12: Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.
