Mokhudu Machaba has dedicated the last 17 years of her life as a teacher.Teaching was never her career choice but it brought joy in her life.
Its not all the case that we do what went to school for,we find ourselves doing other careers we intended to do and the love keeps us going.
Teaching is a profession that requires passion, commitment, tolerance, perseverance, character and the dedication to make a difference in the lives of a diverse group of young and older children.
Its never an easy job to work people,more especially children.Children will give you a headache,my three old daughter is very naughty everytime must always shout.
Now imagine with hundreds of kids from different households.Mhm i can't imagine what teachers go through.It really takes dedication and passion to educate others.
Today we are who we are because of this teachers.I remember i was naughty at primary school,i even confessed to this other teacher that i love her.She laughed and told the other teachers.All praises should go to each and every teacher.
I have done Electrical Engineering,but now i found myself doing security(VIP) in SANDF.It's a new career i enjoy most now.I am sure there are lot of you who can testify on this.
