Job Title: Class Teacher
I have been teaching at Sentinel Kabitaka for the last two years. I believe that everyone should be given an opportunity to access good education, education that goes beyond memorizing facts but one that focuses on equipping the learner with skills that help them to survive and apply themselves, wherever they go. I am a strong supporter of education that allows the pupil to be engaged, independent and highly motivated so that their minds are set into motion to create works that contribute to the lives of many, including themselves.
Everyone is a star, we all just shine differently and are motivated to do so in different ways. So, let your light shine.
In my spare time I love to travel, sew and do anything that requires me to be creative.

Ms Pauline Banda English & Humanities Teacher
Name: Pauline Chipo Banda

Job Title: English and Humanities Teacher
I am passionate about improving children’s lives. Before pursuing teaching full time towards the end of the year 2014, I worked in community schools and an organisation that takes street children off the street and helps them develop talents such as acrobatics, dance and acting. My role in this was to identify vulnerable children from different communities and come up with ideas on how well to create a better livelihood for them by using their talents.
My passion for changing children’s lives for the better by assisting them to identify talent or a variety of hidden skills is what pushed me to pursue a teaching career. I am a very patient individual who enjoys working with a wide range of personalities. I Joined Educore Services as a Humanities and English teacher at Sentinel Kabitaka School as a trainee in January 2015. During my training, I studied with the Educore academy and Northrise University where I graduated with a distinction in Post Graduate Diploma in Teaching and Learning. The subjects I teach include history, social studies and English (English as a First Language, English as a Second Language and English Literature). I also have a BA in Sociology and currently pursuing a Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction.
To achieve my set targets as a teacher in all my lessons, I embark on widening my subject knowledge as much as possible to enable me deliver lessons that are not only motivating, but also suitable for all the children attending the lesson. I promote student participation in the class by bringing in a diverse set of activities suitable for each child to enable all children learn by doing and seeing depending on their ability to learn. Aside from this suiting their needs and strengths, it creates a love for learning in them.
