MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I was studying to be a doctor when due to personal reasons I had to change my profession and become a teacher. I started as an early years teacher but over the last 20 years got the opportunity to teach in the primary, middle and secondary school, head a school and then get involved in teacher training and curriculum development. I have no regrets on not becoming a doctor which was my childhood dream. I have grown professionally and have done lots of courses. In 2006 I did my Masters in School Leadership and Administration from UK. I feel teaching is the most rewarding job. The satisfaction you attain when a 5 year old learns to write a single letter of the alphabet is amazing. When you learn from a 6 year old how to deal with conflict it's an breathtaking experience and you realise you can learn from anyone anywhere.
As a teacher I feel technology plays an important role in not just enhancing students' learning but also in managing my work more effectively and efficiently. The use of technology helps in attaining my lesson objectives in ways that are more exciting and stimulating for the children. The best thing is that it helps cater to individual needs and different learning styles in the classroom. Our students are ICT natives, they are living in a digital world. Keeping technology out of the classroom is like creating an artificial environment for them.
