Korotimi, second year teacher trainee
Village primary school teachers in Burkina Faso rise to the challenge of 100+ students in a classroom as the demande for education increases. Korotimi, a teacher trainee whose training is supported by your GlobalGiving donations, shares her experience.
My name is Korotimi. I am in my second year of training to become a primary school teacher. Last year, I completed my classwork at the National School for Primary School Teachers in Ouahigouya. This year, I am doing my practicum with a first grade class under the supervision of a classroom teacher in the primary school in Gondologo.
We have 102 students in our class: 54 girls and 48 boys. Class hours are Monday – Friday from 7:30 – 12:00 and 3:00 – 5:00. I prepare my lessons every night and submit them to the classroom teacher for approval before teaching the class. At the end of April, I will be evaluated by the classroom teacher and the school director. Then I will return to the National School for Primary School Teachers to prepare for the final primary school teacher exam.
My most sincere THANK YOU to all of the GlobalGiving donors who have accepted to support the cost of my training. This means the world to me!
