= My Profile =

My name is Caroline as you already know.I ahve studuied English and Literautre in my Bachelors degree I have also done Guiding and couselling,a certificate course.I have been teaching for the last 10 years in Kenya Mombasa.

==Professional Background==

Among those years,I have taught in 3 schools. The first school was quite a small school with one stream class from grade 1 to grade 8.The ckasses were very squeezae but had 20 students which was easy to manage at the same time. My second school was quite big and had 33 students in a class.It had big field for kids tp play and a swimming of their own unlike the first school where we had to go outfor a twenty minutes drive to a swimming pool we had hired every Friday.This meant all the kids had to have swimming on the same day but at different times off the day.It worked well.

The third school I am in is quite has a very interesting system called IB.I am teaching the PYP system which is the primary years programme in IB.


Bachelor of Arts<u</u>


My Interests

I love organising talks with teenagers.I spend two hours evry Sunday with nearly 4o teeanagers ranging from 13 to 17 years of age.I like to facilitate talks by comming up with topics that I feel need to be discusdsed.I get this topics from listenting to them when we have casual taks and I fing them complaining about things or saying things that seem to disturbing them. I like waling alot though I need to create time to do it more often.

I love drama and teaching kids.I also organise public speaking and it gives me great joy to see kids getting out of their shy cacoon and speaking what is on their minds.


Grade two teacher


I also love watching movies,reading and listening especiaally to people's opinions on things to do with pluralism.It makes me wonder when will we be able to think like one.


My Projects

My Reflection

I am just realising that even if thingsa seem hard,the worst thing you can do is give up.I was just trying to figure out how to go about editing and going about my wiki for the last few days.i have been stuck and the 5th day,I found myself pulling through.
