Name: Seipati “Joyce” Machaea
Title: Head Teaching Assistant in the Baby Centre
I am the dedicated, passionate and kind, head teaching assistant for the Stage 2 group. I joined the ClevaMe Team when the academy was established for a mere 6 months. I keep track of this, because I have pride in not only the work I do, but pride for every little student that I teach as part of a very strong team.
I have experience in working with babies from a tender 3 months to a busy 24 months. Working with these ages, has taught me to be animated. Creating different sounds and facial expressions to the delight of our little students, is what puts a smile on my face. I endearingly refer to the students as “my people”. I believe in working hard, and making each day count.
I have studied the Certificate Programme for Practitioners in Early Childhood Development which I obtained from UNISA. I am Level One First Aid Trained, as well as certified in the ClevaMe Brain Development Programme.
