good benefits and pay. But demands are increasing and unreasonable. During the pandemic you are required to risk your life or lose your job. You are also expected to use approx 10% of your salary on resources.
paid sick leave and health insurance
During my duties as a teacher of an educational center, I was able to expand my knowledge intellectually, socially and culturally through various experiences with my work colleagues. although we had an administration that only veiled its inner circle, leaving us on occasion without any support
I enjoy interacting with the students and spending as much time teaching and sharing stories with the students. The teachers all have a good relationship with me and I enjoy being there for the students. The hardest part of the job is meeting deadlines and getting students to pay attention. The most enjoyable part of the job is the students being happy and enjoying school.

overtime of work
Working at the Ministry of Education was very interesting especially when we deal with the young minds.. I love being involved and mould these innocent lives to whom they are now. At the same time however, no one recognise my efforts simply because of my qualifications.
Evaluation and planning with all stakeholders
A learning and Teaching context highly depends on Proper planning from its Leader to its Staff to make daily learning and teaching each day successful
A typical day of work as a Head of an institution is usually upon arrival signing in checking on the early arrivals into school,taking rounds around the classrooms checking on the early arrivals working on the morning work prepared by all staff. Making sure that all rooms are opened, neat and tidy for the day and making sure that the time is used wisely once these small Infants arrive in school. After that I usually wait at the front gate to greet Teachers, students and Parents. Also monitor the arrival of transport school bus, taxis or private vehicles dropping off students, 9.00 am sharp lesson begins at 10.30 am recess time , 12.00 pm lunch time and at 2.30pm end of a school day. As a Christian school it is a school norm, on the first day of the week and last day of the week school assembly is conducted in the mornings by the school Deaconess. The school caters for 933 children with only 23 Teachers, 3 teacher aides and 5 ancillary staff, This is the Biggest Infant school in the nation catering for only years 1 to year 3. Year i has 7 streams, year 2 8 streams and year 3 - 7 streams. The class ratio was 40:1 which is very high. The most hardest part of the work in this teaching context is student dismissal everyday whereby at times we the staff usually wait for parents till late in the afternoons. The most enjoyable part is the extra curricular activities like swimming and excursions. The beauty of this type of this institution is the fact that they are so full of innocence at this stage 6 year old to 8 year old. They do not pose any behavioral problems thriving - more...
Yes school provides not only lunches but breakfast too. to students who need it.
As already mentioned above:- waiting long hours, communication break down, attitude problem of parents, lack of teachers communication skills
teaching is a calling. most of the work requires dedication and comittment. being learner centred allows results to be attained. hard work gives results. nothing beats the honour to work with children particularly those with disabilities
Settle the class and go through the curriculum and activities that were scheduled for the day.Working with children from varying background and socialization taught me patience and tolerance.The School was governed by a Principal and Vice Principal along with a team of Senior Teachers however there were regular staff meetings which provided an opportunity for everyone to contribute.The culture was somewhat competitive but there was a level of collaboration and support.Limited resources to meet the need of large class sizes comprised of children who were performing at various academic level.Seeing children who had fallen behind in their performance improving. Enjoying great relationship with the students.
The Ministry of Education does its best to fulfill tis mission ensuring teachers, students and school community are satisfied.
On a typical day at work my priority is to ensure that all my students participate in various class activities. Being aware that my students learn at different pace I create equal opportunities for all. At the end of the day everyone learns something new and can talk about it. I have learnt that teaching is not about me or what I know but undoubtedly about the students. Its about what they know, want to know and what they learn. It doesn't matter how much I know, if the students are not interested its a difficult and uphill task. Therefore I have to find creative ways to impart knowledge and skills to gain their interest. Its a two way street where my students and interact, I get to know them and they get to know me so teaching and learning is become easier and more fun In terms of management as it relates to my class, I would say there are times when students are very disruptive, lackadaisical and of course disobedient. We have systems in place where they are disciplined and parents are called in. They generally give their support to teachers knowing children tend to want to have their own way. My co workers and I have great relationship. We all know that teaching is not an easy task therefore we support each other even when we do not agree on certain issues. Sometimes at the end of the day we praise ourselves about how great our profession is or how great we are as teachers having to deal with an average of thirty five (35) unique beings everyday. The hardest part of teaching is not having the resources at hand when really need them. Thus I have to improvise - more...
