From March 5-30 South African teacher, Ms. Ade Nanti, will be sharing her talents with our Hamlin students and faculty. Ms. Nanti will work with grade 6 students as they explore curriculum that focuses on South Africa. Hamlin has participated with Teach With Africa in the past and we look forward to this year’s cross-cultural exchange.
Teach With Africa is a non-profit organization empowering students and teachers in a reciprocal exchange of teaching and learning in Africa and the United States. Teach With Africa seeks to reduce the embedded inequities in our societies by working to provide access to quality education in order to transform children’s lives, schools and communities.
Ms. Nanti shares:
My reason for choosing teaching is simply this: I love children. I love to work with young creative minds which are eager to explore new concepts. I love to see children dream big and achieve their dreams. I don’t mind seeing children falling short of achieving their goals because they usually rise above their challenges with resilience and vigour. I love the curious minds of children and their challenging questions which make me wonder if indeed one plus one equals two. I love the cheerful noise of children and I love the fact that when I close my eyes every night, I know there is hope for the future because I have played a role in shaping it. I can wake up into that future and say, “I was here. I lived and I served.”
