Author Biography

Jeanette Vuuren (Jansen van Vuuren) lives in Adelaide, Australia with her husband and two children.

Her educational background as a qualified teacher with a further diploma in Remedial Education and over fourteen years teaching experience, gained in South Africa, the UK and Australia has given her a deep empathy and understanding for the special needs of students.

Working with Kindergarten to Year 11 students, with diverse backgrounds, in different subject fields as a mainstream, special needs and remedial teacher, helped her adapt her teaching strategies to meet the individual needs of students.

She especially aims to write educational and story books, including the relevant concepts applicable for specific age groups, integrating learning content with different curriculum, subject fields and life lessons.

While staying at home when her two children were young, her passion for writing started when she was doing research on remedial education and learning disabilities, creating integrated lesson plans for differentiated classes.

She pursued her passion for writing in 2009 to assist a student who was not able to sound out words, but made up her own story by looking at the pictures.
Jeanette has published her first series on honeybees and is in the process of expanding the series with teachers' resources, fun activities and other series and will have it available in paperback soon.
