Catherine Reynders excelled in matric but gave up her spot at medical school to pursue her true passion: teaching mathematics. It was her dedication and commitment to improving mathematics education in SA that earned her a bursary from CRET. In her spare time she gives back to the community by teaching mathematics to local school girls.
