Period and reason for leavingI worked there as part of my practical work in 2009 and again to fill in for a teacher who went on Maternity leave for 3 months from July 2011 - September 2011.
Number of children,age and gender of the children when you started?They were 28 children in a class and they were 4-5 years old, boys and girls.
What were your duties?I would get there early in the morning and we would have pray time (this is a Christian School), we would then do counting and the introduction of the activity for the week, I would then collaborate it for example drawing or painting etc. It would then be eating time and in between we would do toilet training. We then all went outside to play for a while and then go back to the classroom for sleeping time. I was the assistant teacher: I was making sure everything runs smoothly within and outside the classroom. I got along with everyone there and never had any problems.
