This place was great to work at and it was rewarding. It was a good place to work and I had learned a lot from it. I was dealing with students, parents, other staff members, and clients - which was very good experience for me. The most enjoyable part of the job was the impact you could have on the people you were helping

A typical day of work includes opening in daily devotions which includes religious hymns, prayer and scriptures from the Holy Bible that my fourth graders memorizes. Afterwards, my students recite their timetables and vocabulary word list for the current week. Then, we would engage in exciting and stimulating lessons in Math, Language, Social Sciences and Religious Studies. My lesson are structured around collaborated learning. It is my belief that children can build good character traits and learn from working closely with their peers. At the end of day, I spend about 20 minutes revising the content that was taught. This is conducted in a game format. For each subject area I would create flash cards and have each group compete to answer the questions. The group that wins would receive a small token (pencil, sweet treat etc). I believe that daily revision is an integral part in helping my students retain the information that they have learnt. I have learnt that the key for doing my job effectively is to work as unto the Lord. It is my endeavor to always have taught knowing that I have done my best to ensure my students learn and I make an impact on their lives. The most enjoyable part of my job is the look of excitement on my students' face, when they would have learnt something new. I am motivated by the successes of my students.

I enjoyed working with the teenagers mostly. Apart from their academic development there are other areas that needed to be handled as well, their emotional and social development which I was able to do as a result of studying BSc. in Counselling Degree. I was able to identify children with emotional problems and was able to help them overcome some of the problems. Some of these children were able to perform well in their academic subjects with a new found positive outlook.That aspect was more fulfilling than the subject teaching.
Pros
The feeling of fulfilment once you help children overcome their emotional challenges
Cons
Clash with parents regarding how they believed their children needed to be helped.

I have a different way of thinking about education and training. Finally, i decided that this is not what i want to do for the rest of my life. I have very a specified opinion about the planning and performing of training and education.
Pros
New experience
Cons
No expectations

In a world where most people chase financial success, i chose to become an Economics teacher only because of all the challenges, adventures, thrills and discoveries it hem in. In fact, the more i dissect the subject, the more i discover and the less i feel i know about it.To me, it is an exciting and intellectually stimulating subject matter that deals with the important issues of the day.As a teacher, one of my main everyday objectives is to get students away from their spurious opinion that Economics is a boring subject. I want my discrete influence to promulgate a tsunami of thoughts in the students’ minds. These can in turn be articulated in class in the forms of debates and discussion, igniting a significant level of freedom, in the way the students reflect. I want to manipulate the senses of the learner “not to teach them what to think but how to think”. Everyday is a new challenge. Each and every adolescent is unique and it is essential for me to unlock their potential in the most appropriate way. This can be quite a tough job in case one has limited time to assist the learners
Pros
Contributing to the success of the learners and the country in general, promulgating independent thinking, teaching is a noble profession, high self-satisfaction once desired outcome is achieved
Cons
Not really cons for i rather call them challenges and they include : highly demanding, mixed abilities students

I have big responsibilities, because my job required high level of accuracy, as an example in making exams, producing curriculums or prepare and produce training programs. Some times I deals with experts from western world for adapting curriculums or international exams.

My first day, I was a bit nervous. Everyone around me was new and all eyes were on me. I learnt that a workplace is like a society where you find almost all characters and of different academic and social background who treats you in different ways. Also learnt that what we do everyday can build or destroy a life, In the design field is either a profit or loss so I had to do it to my best. My co-workers were supportive and inquisitive. The hardest part was to embrace everyone on board(stakeholders) and to know who to approach for things I needed. most enjoyable part was to see learners pass and to see designed projects working and seeing clients satisfied with offered services
Pros
free lunch
Cons
transport problems
