Marguerite – Academic Studies

Marguerite comes from a long line of teachers and school principals which goes back several generations. Throughout her childhood, she was exposed to these inspirational and caring people, which in turn instilled a keen sense of helping others. Her journey to become a teacher did however not follow the conventional route.

After completing Matric she started to study a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Archaeology and Communication Science at UNISA. She also worked in various business settings after graduating from university. During 2016 she started tutoring Afrikaans to students who were struggling and this is where the teaching bug bit her.
She decided to return to university to better her knowledge in education and she started to study a Post Graduate Certificate in Education at UNISA.

Her teaching style is a combination of helping students achieve their full potential in a caring environment and using solid teaching techniques.


Marguerite is also very passionate about the arts, especially classical music. She joined the school choir at the age of 7 and started to play piano at the age of 8. She continues to enjoy these activities in her leisure time and has recently started to continue her music theory grading. For the past 3 years, she has also been giving beginner piano lessons to students of all age groups.

All in all, Marguerite strives to always give her best in everything she does and to enjoy life to the fullest and she intends to bring her A-game to M&M Music Academy’s academic department.
