Janna Steffan – LEAP 4 Diepsloot
“I first visited South Africa ten years ago and have always dreamed of returning to spend time learning and teaching in local schools. I’m thrilled to have this opportunity! I have enjoyed working with a variety of students from all over the world and I can’t wait to meet the LEAP students. I enjoy watching the light bulbs turn on in students’ heads when they work on new and exciting projects, and sharing my passion for learning with others.”
