Tembaletu LSEN is a school in the township of Guguletu for physically handicapped black children. My experience at Tembaletu over the semester has been a very rewarding one. I work with the intermediate phase (5th and 6th grade learners) teaching them in the subject of Math. I spend the day teaching and working with the students on the material we have covered as well as assisting the other teachers with their students. The community at Tembaletu is a very welcoming one and the relationships that you develop with the staff and the children are a critical part of your experience there.

While at Tembaletu the majority of my time was spent with senior phase learners (7th, 8th, & 9th grade) teaching them in the subjects of Math (Algebra & Geometry) and EMS. During time in between teaching I was also involved in assisting faculty and staff members with various technological assignments concerning: computers, fax machines, scanners, printers, digital cameras, software programs, etc. I have begun to enhance Tembaletu’s technology resources throughout the school. There is a continued need to help with technology as resources are not being used effectively.
