The first week of the school year is where the teacher, sets the boundaries and the children begin to get to know you and you get to know them. For teaching to be effective and successful a relationship of trust and care needs to be developed with the children.
I was privileged to have met Pres. Nelson Mandela in person. On the 7th May 1996 I graduated from ORT-STEP Institute as one of the first group Technology Education teachers in South Africa. Rest in peace, Ntate, Pres. Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela!
