At first, I was overwhelmed, scared and unsure about what I was getting myself into – considering all of the negative stories, news and rumours about the second wave that I was hearing.
However, after stepping foot at the school on my first school visit, I realised that a big part of me had missed being at our schools and I said to myself, “Don’t let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do!”
When we had a chance to talk to the SMT and our mentees, the vacuum that had been empty for more than six months and missing was becoming filled.
It was an emotional time for me as I had missed what I love doing most – MENTORING!
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” – Nelson Mandela.
As Mandela says above, education is the first step for people to gain the knowledge, critical thinking, empowerment, and skills that they need to make this world a better place.
Mentoring helps unlock the potential of teachers, learners and the SMT, and that is why I love doing what I do – being a mentor.
Thanks to Edufundi for giving me such a great opportunity to make a difference in learners, teachers, and my own life!!!
