Steven Moolman (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the Academic Coordinator at K12 School Unit, NIST. He is also a Senior Teacher in K12 School Unit of OE Division, NSRIC. In April 2014 Steven and his wife Yolanda was invited to assist the Owners of the privately run Al Ain Center for Care and Rehabilitation (ACCR) with the Educational Transformation process. They are currently building a world class Center for the Disabled. Yolanda is responsible for the Residential Program and Steven is responsible for the Coordination of all Programs. I am currently in my fifth month of my probation period. No one is more focused than Steven Moolman on making a project come together – securing difficult government entitlements, surpassing employers, partners, and associates expectations, and motivating teams to execute the vision and exceed goals. A master fixer, he tackles problems head-on,
“As a management leader, I always try to understand what someone else’s world looks like, why they are the way they are, and what drives their concerns and decisions.”
Steven tells it straight. He is driven by a fundamental belief in honesty – offering his employers, partners and associates direct viewpoints on where the business stands; providing accurate feedback and evaluation to his teams; giving governmental officials the straight story to gain grants and approvals; and safeguarding the best interests of all parties concerned. For more than thirty years, being driven by a passion for education Steven has been working with young people, either as their teacher, tutor, youth leader, choir master, coach, house father and/or educational manager instilling in them a sense of dignity and self respect in order for them to respect others. Steven was a teacher and Principal for more than twenty years before becoming the Director and Principal of Marsh Memorial Homes, a Children’s Home where he has been for more than eight (8) years before taking up the Leadership Development and Support Portfolio at Symphonia in January 2014 and subsequently the Program Coordinator at ACCR in Al Ain. Steven is not only a fluent and well-informed public and motivational speaker, he also has a passion for road running. He completed the Comrades (Ultra 89 km) Marathon three times. In 2009 in order to swell the coffers of the Children’s Home he obtained “kilometre sponsorships” whilst taking part in the Comrades Marathon. He raised more than R180 000 with that project. His other passions are music and community development work. This perhaps is a true example of a leader who puts his body on the line.
Steven Moolman even appeared in an American movie called Adopted where he played Alan, the orphanage principal which was shot on location at Marsh Memorial Homes in Rondebosch, Cape Town.
