I am a husband, dad and sometimes human who lives in South Africa. For the last 8 years I was a teacher and principal of a private school but due to unexpected events, I am now on a new journey. One where I am a full-time stay-at-home dad, homeschooler and generally trying to come to terms with the ever-changing nature of life.
