I’m Tess, of Miss Teacher Tess. I grew up in Harare, Zimbabwe- a little country in Southern Africa. I then finished my schooling in beautiful Cape Town, South Africa which is where I currently live and work.

I’m a twenty something teacher, who is excited about life and who loves to  focus on the good. To me, one of the most important things in life is to express kindness in everything you do. I believe that we’re all worthy of love and respect, and despite the seeming outward appearance of things, we’re more similar than we realize. I want to instill this desire to treat others with kindness and respect, in the students I teach. I’m on a journey to find out the best way to do that: in my lessons, classroom management, teaching methods and demeanor as an educator.

I’m about to embark on an exciting travel adventure. I’ll be moving all the way to London in a couple of months. I hope you’ll follow my adventure, and be inspired to share in my quest to spread kindness!
