Michéle Clift
Biographical info

Michéle Clift majored in English and French at the University of Stellenbosch in 1985 and completed an HDE at the University of Cape Town in 1986.

She has 20 years teaching experience In English Home Language and English First and Second Additional Languages.
Her experience has been varied, ranging from small schools in the Namaqualand to big, well-respected city schools.

One of the most defining moments in her career was when a mother walked 15 km from her house on a farm with a home-baked bread to thank her for teaching her daughter to read. “Books touch the reader and the reader touches the world.”

Michéle now lives and teaches in Paarl, in the middle of the Cape Winelands.
