Part of the Prep Team – Mrs Fowlds, Grade 3 TeacherJun 9, 2021
Ms Cordell was born and grew up in Johannesburg and went to St Mary’s, Waverley. She studied Fine Art at Pietermaritzburg University. After getting involved in a tutoring programme that was part of the University’s drive for social justice, Ms Cordell decided to stay on to do a Higher Degree in Education. She has been teaching and loving it ever since!
Ms Cordell has taught all the way from Matric to Grade 1 at all sorts of schools, ranging from relief teaching in London, an inner-city school in Braamfontein, a tiny school in Bathurst to DSG and Prep. Ms Cordell has taught Learning Support, Art, Design and Technology, English and is now Grade 5 class teacher.
When not in the classroom, Ms Cordell loves reading, appreciates the outdoors and loves being creative.
“One of the things I enjoy most about teaching at Prep,” she says, “is all the colleagues and friends I have met and made. Another is the fact that I have never been able to settle into a comfort zone.”
Ms Cordell loves having her son, Keanin, at Senior Prep with her.
