I hadn’t had any interest in teaching until much later in high school. I knew nothing about it but things changed for me after that.
It began with fellow students at high school in 2013, telling me “you have a mesmerizing ability to persuade someone, you can will make a good teacher ” I would only smile at their opinions because I had no idea of what I would be best at. I could be. As time went on their words sank in. I got attached to these opinions and eventually, decided to begin with leadership. I contested for school leadership and became a general secretary in at a student government. Being a leader was a fortune experience that increased my confidence and changed my self-image. It made me realize my potential and talents. The way I organized, communicated and dealt with various students’ ch would make me a good teacher.
I took that experience from high school to heart and applied to join the University of Dar es salaam in the 2015/2016 academic year to pursue a bachelor’s degree. My ultimate goal was to expand my academic horizons and become a part of an incredible family of teachers. Second to none, the university broadened my knowledge, developed my skills and perfectly prepared me for a profession that I desired to excel at. It is an excellent platform that provided me with a collection of community experiences and personal development opportunities. Due to my good interpersonal skills and sociable nature, my fellow students preferred to choose chose me to lead them on academic and social issues. My excellence in at interpersonal communication skills and a good work ethics earned me membership in Calvary Youth Choir, DUCE Linguistic Club, YALI Initiative and Tanzania Youth Ministry (TAYOMI) where i I also served as a chairperson. At the university I did took various courses in Education, Linguistics and Literature which equipped me well with essential knowledge and skills.
I stand by the assertion that every student deserves a qualified teacher. This changing world requires qualified and culturally diverse teachers who are confident and independent enough to inspire and encourage children to realize their potential and value the full worth of their education. Among others, this is the reason that has prompted me to apply for a Master’s degree of Arts in Education with an endorsement in English as a Second Language (ESL). I’m looking forward to building upon my success and fulfillment I have already experienced as a teacher and gain further satisfaction from my career. As a person who has taught in different schools in Tanzania, instead of having to hear it second hand, I’m aware of the challenges facing Tanzanian education system, more specifically in teaching English as second language. In regard to the experience I have so far gained through teaching English language in different Tanzanian primary and secondary schools, I have become familiar with the challenges facing both English language teachers and students in learning and teaching English as a second language. Some of the challenges being teachers’ low capacity to facilitate teaching of English as a subject and the lack of suitable language teaching techniques as well. Another challenge is the inadequate supply of suitable teaching and learning materials. For instance in my simple review and in talking to various English teachers here in Tanzania, I have discovered numerous inappropriate English textbooks used in primary and secondary schools. Therefore, I’m eagerly anticipating for a limitless knowledge that will enable me to get gain a professional role in solving these challenges. Advanced courses in curriculum and instructional development, educational leadership, educational technology, new teaching techniques and ESL endorsement to name a few, will provide me with a solid foundation that will grow in my knowledge, skills and experience in supporting my students to thrive in their educational journey. I will use my expertise to empower not only students but also English language teachers in achieving their goals by preparing convenient English textbooks and training teachers on how to improve their grounds in teaching of English as second language. My long term aspiration is attaining a PhD in Education that will offer me a leadership opportunity to plan and improve the quality of education in my entire community.
