Teaching At Hill Breeze

For the first couple of days, I sat in on classes and observed the lessons as an induction into the curriculum. Then I was given my own classes to teach:  class 2 SocialStudies, class 3 English and class 4 Science. I am not a teacher by profession, but I have a science background and my life experience has included many public speaking events, plus training and coaching activities; so I found that inspite of my initial nerves, I really enjoyed teaching the classes. It really helped to do lesson planning for the following day to ensure that visual aids and the best means of presenting the subject was worked out in advance.  As Kenyan spoken English tends to have quite a strong accent, I had to ensure that I spoke slowly, repeated important information often and said things in different ways to ensure that the class understood me. Sometimes to illustrate a point I used comic actions in order to make them laugh and retain their attention! This amused them no end, maybe because Kenyan teaching methods can be quite formal and serious.

I couldn't detain myself to become the part of this class because I had heard a lot about the significance of this class. I became a proper mature student after getting lectures from best teachers in this class.

This must be a very fulfilling experience teaching English to disadvantage children in third world countries. I speak from experience because my Mormon faith allowed me to take part in various missions across the globe. I was part of a mission to bring clean water to Haiti, a country with lovely people but are unfortunately victims of a corrupt government. The clean water that we take for granted when we drink, brush our teeth, wash the dishes, etc. is a luxury in that country. Water is essential even than food. Giving Haitians to tools and method for cleaning and purifying their water is truly very helpful for their health and in their daily lives.
