MARIST BROTHERS LINMEYER

Mrs Cheryl-Ann Mordt

Mrs Mordt’s teaching career began 39 years ago. She is also the longest standing educator in the department, having taught Natural Sciences and Life Sciences at Marist Brothers Linmeyer for 21 years. Mrs Mordt obtained a Higher Diploma in Education from the University of the Witwatersrand (JCE). She is currently teaching Grade 8 Natural Sciences, Grade 9 Biology and Grades 11 Life Sciences.

Mrs Mordt tries to instil our founder, St. Marcellin’s Champagnat’s 10 Attitudes and 5 Characteristics and the Works of Mercy in her students. Although Life Sciences and Wildlife are clearly her passion, Mrs Mordt is also qualified to teach Geography and Physical Education. During her free time, Mrs Mordt likes to Read, do Yoga and Pilates and has a keen interest in plants. Her favourite quote is her old school motto – “Procrastination is the thief of time” and also “Go placidly amongst the noise and haste and remember what peace there is in silence,” by Max Ehrmann.

The Catholic ethos and family history attracted Mrs Mordt to our School, since her grandfather came to this country from Germany as a Marist Brother. Positive, strong, yet kind and giving people inspire Mrs Mordt. Her main inspiration is drawn from God. Some interesting facts that people may not know about Mrs Mordt: she swam the Midmar Mile race 10 years in a row, she can still stand on her head, she went on Pilgrimage in 2011 and she is a survivor of the big “C” and has been in remission since 2011.
