Help me become a teacher

Help me become a teacher

Personal message

Hi, my name is Firdous, and I recently matriculated in 2020. I have been accepted to study Education at the University of the Western Cape! This year (2021) I have become a first-year student! I am passionate about teaching and working with younger learners. I would love to study towards a career in teaching.

From a very young age I was inspired by the work that my mother did. She volunteered at a primary school, helping younger learners who struggled with their homework. This motivated me as I realised that I would also love to bring about change by educating young school going individuals. 
 
In my last year of primary school, as a prefect, I assisted the foundation phase educators by helping them in their classrooms. I found the Educators teaching methods interesting as well as why they communicated with the learners. I would like to experience the joy of being able to give another person hope to see them learn to write, read, count and strive towards their dreams. I would want to pass on the love I have for learning, giving them hope for their future and building them into strong and proud individuals. 
 
I am the first person in my family to do my studies at a university. The only obstacle stopping me from pursing my career is finances. My father is the sole breadwinner, and he earns an income that is only enough to purchase food and to pat for the rent. Is it not a fixed income and he will therefore not be able to pay for my studies, my books and the transport to get to university. This is a humble appeal to anyone able to assist me in achieving my dreams of becoming a teacher. Thank you!
