Teacher of the Week
Teacher: Gertrude Phirimana
School: Zamukuhle Junior Secondary School, Mbizana, Eastern Cape
GERTRUDE Phirimana has always loved being a teacher to an extent that she used to imitate her teachers by sharing good learning experiences with other learners in the playgrounds.
She enjoys seeing learners display independent thinking skills especially when they think out of the box when investigating mathematical rules and formulae through her guidance.
Her major challenge has been overcrowded classes and this makes it difficult to give all the learners individual attention.
She tries to keep all learners engaged at all times by giving them different tasks and problems to solve as individuals and as groups.
She also does extra classes to add more teaching time for Mathematics.
Ndlovu is a results-driven individual in everything she does.
She strives for best learner performance and uses all available resources for networking provincially, nationally and internationally with other maths teachers through available programmes.
She intends to further her studies for the betterment and widening of her Maths knowledge.
