Life in the Classroom as We Know it

I am Melandri Ricci, a teacher at Machiu Primary School. I have not yet been teaching for as long as many other teachers at my school, but I’m sure there is one thing that many of us can agree upon – life in the classroom is not always easy.

“A book is a gift you can open again and again” – Garrison Keillor

One of the major barriers teachers face in our schools is the lack of basic resources to support teaching and learning.

A Big Book Surprise!

During our recent visit to Bonga Primary last Friday, Ms Ndakisa was given the gift of a reading corner with a book set and reading mat by her mentor Sylvie Moodley. Sylvie said “Ms Ndakisa sought support in the middle of last year because it was her first time teaching English as a First Additional Language.

My Morale Just Got Doubled Up

I am Buyiswa Monakali teaching at Ebongweni Public School at kwaZakhele in Port Elizabeth. I have been in the teaching profession for 25 years. I joined Edufundi as a mentee in January 2018. I was reluctant to join the programme but I was motivated by attending the workshops and seeing development with previous mentees at the school, now I can say loud and clear that I don’t have any regrets about being mentored.
