Pauline Wanjiku Nduati has taught high school biology and chemistry for 29 years, 6 of which she was deputy principal in charge of discipline. She holds a diploma in science education and a Bachelor of Psychology (counselling) from University of Nairobi. She is married with four grown up children and a committed Christian.
In 1996, while deputy principal in a local secondary school, she was faced with a glaring lack of skills in dealing with deviant behaviour in students aged between 14 and 20 years. She was continually baffled by the students’ inability or reluctance to follow the “simple” normal school rules which they repeatedly broke with impunity. One particular case of noisemaking in a form two class shook her out of her functional fixatedness into a long search of the reasons people behave as they do. Her search ended eight years later when she enrolled in a psychology class in the University of Nairobi. Psychology has helped her understand human behaviour and how to assist people who have a desire to be released from their psychological prisons.
