I view working collaboratively as an approach that encourages recognizing and celebrating each other’s efforts and achievements. I promote the culture of learning and cultivate social and emotional learning. While I understand that teaching and learning is not a solo path, I realise that every child and teacher is unique and that I need to respond to assist each of my students to develop their potential and learning styles. Therefore, my research interests are focused on instilling social justice in education and ensuring that teaching and learning is inclusive. I also have a keen interest in exploring social and emotional learning. I believe in a society that values all voices and lived experiences.

I love giving back to the community, showing compassion to the needy, and a sense of humanity. I am involved in Joseph’s Nduli Children’s World; this is a children’s home that aims to change children’s lives positively. We believe in influencing and building their characters. The children’s home provides a stable foundation rooted in education and health care for orphaned, vulnerable, deprived and impoverished children who need care and protection. We offer a loving and safe family environment that enables children the right to a happy, educated, and skilled, develop a spiritual and healthy life.
I teach and supervise various postgraduate students at the honors and master levels.
