Mr Glyn Lewis Head of Primary

Name: Glyn Lewis

Title: Head Teacher of Sentinel Kabitaka Primary

 

I have been working in international education for the past 26 years, holding various posts in the Middle East, Europe, South Asia and Africa as well as teaching in the UK. More specifically I have led Primary schools in Portugal, Sri Lanka and Dubai. I have been working recently as an educational consultant, with the National College for Leadership, assessing candidates for the National Professional Qualification for Headship and Middle Leaders Qualifications. Distributed Leadership is a particular interest of mine. I am as passionate about education as the day I qualified as a teacher and firmly believe our vocation to be the most important in society. Someone has to teach the politicians, astronauts and doctors of the future to read! I enjoy reading, theatre and music but my main interests include photography, wildlife and anything gadget related. I am returning to Africa (It gets under your skin) and I am looking forward to all the sights, sounds and rich culture I remember so well.

 

I hope to be able to bring my broad experience of education, to Kabitaka.  I believe in child-centred education and will work hard as an advocate for the most important people in the school community, the children. I also hope to be able to help to build the future of Educore, as a whole, helping to ensure that the quality of teaching and learning across the group is best it can possibly be.

Mrs Moira Maango  Year 3 Teacher

Name: Moira Maango

Year group taught: Year 3

Job Title: Teacher

 

Experience:  2014 – Baobab College

                        2015 – To Date – Sentinel Kabitaka School.

 

My educational philosophy is that, a teacher should be aware of his/her students' emotional, social, psychological, and physical development as well as their cognitive growth. Individualized instruction is also an integral strategy to aid children with different learning preferences. In order to meet individual challenges, lessons must be structured into learning experiences by incorporating auditory, kinesthetic, and visual techniques. Applying a variety of approaches to the learning process is equally important. Use of cooperative learning strategies, integration of technology into the classroom, as well as guided individual instruction are all necessary to provide an environment where children will use self-discovery and a hands-on approach to learning.

 

Learning should be fun and exciting! My classroom will be an inviting and safe place where children will feel comfortable, and love to learn.

Year group taught: Year 1

Job Title: Class Teacher

 

For the past 3 years of my teaching career, I have striven to become an enthusiastic, dedicated and goal driven educator with an innate ability to inspire and appreciate children. I am passionate about teaching and helping children reach their full potential, for I believe that there is no child who is un-teachable but every child has a potential which is deep inside them. Therefore, I believe that no child should be left behind, and I endeavour to make sure that each child, that I work with, tries hard to fulfill what is expected of them.

 

 

 

Ms Naluku Mwangelwa  Year 1 Teacher

Name:Naluku Mwangelwa

Year group taught: Yr1

Job Title: Class Teacher, IPC Coordinator

 

Soon after completion of my primary teaching course, I worked as a grade five teacher in a public school for two terms. I later on joined the private sector and taught at one of the Zambia Consolidated Copper Mines School ( ZCCM) Nkana Trust School where I worked  for twelve years. I taught grade one, reception, grade three, grade four and grade five. During my teaching career I had an opportunity to develop a wide range of interests like swimming, drama, dance and movement which has developed my skills in acting and composing children’s performances during assemblies and conducting concerts.

Through these activities I realised that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring and stimulating atmosphere. This is important because as children grow they need to be mature emotionally, intellectually, physically and socially.

 

As a teacher I take pleasure in helping pupils meet their full potential. In order to achieve this they need a safe environment that will give them support and allow them to share their ideas. Therefore my main goals for the future is to create an atmosphere that challenges pupils and watch them grow to the full potential. I believe that each child can learn, given the right environment. All children are capable of learning if they are properly motivated and given direction from the teacher. To be an effective teacher one needs to be aware of the learning process, motivating behaviour and development theories in order to relate to the pupils and in addition help them achieve

In this way, we learn to integrate our skills with those of others, thus learning from them as well.
