Where did you grow up/study?
My name is Taryn and I’m a born and bred Capetonian. I am a wife to Ferdi and mum of two children, Sarah and Kye. We’ve been in Hong Kong since 2020.

What attracted you to teach at CAIS?
I’ve been involved in education for over 17 years as a classroom teacher, learning support and more recently pastorally within a senior leadership team. I absolutely love my job but most importantly, the ability to build relationships and walk journeys alongside students and their families. I am excited about joining the CAIS team and am drawn to the warm, loving and value-based feeling of the school.

Biggest challenge and rewarding moment working in education?
There are so many encouraging truths in the Word but within my classroom I like to remember that we are all God’s masterpieces designed with purpose!
