Chlynēse Peter

My name is Chlynése Peter and I will be the new teacher of the Pīwakawaka Class. I am born and raised in South Africa. I am an absolute people’s person and I am in love with the philosophy of teaching. I have a Bachelor of Social Science degree in general and Industrial Psychology. This is essentially where my love for kids of all developmental ages started, leading me to attain my teaching qualifications. 

I come from a beautiful diverse country which embraces differences, culture and Ubuntu (showing a quality of human compassion and humanity). I am so blessed to have the opportunity to teach at the exquisite Mākara Model School. I cannot wait to embrace the beauty and culture of this incredible country and school.
I love the reciprocal relationship between a teacher and learner. I learn just as much from my kids, as they do from me. I want every learner that goes through my hands to explore their world and experience life through a learner-centred approach. 
In my spare time I absolutely enjoy dancing and spending time at the gym. I also enjoy exploring new places. 
I believe that teaching is a work of heart and with education, we have all the tools we need to make the world a better place.
