The organization has no job retention strategy and work ethics. Employees are not employed based on merits but on who do you know within the structure of the organization.

Everyone in the office is friendly and willing to help. I have learned that team work is very important and in it one is able to learn about the different types of personalities people have. The hardest part of the job was to explain to the applicants and their parents why the applicant was not accepted at the school and to see the disappointment in their eyes.
Pros
Free lunches during registration period
Cons
Long hours during registration period

I teach English and Mathematics to grade 6 and 7 at Vumile Primary School. I have learned the implementation of curriculum differentiation for inclusivity and learner accommodation. I am able to manage my class and be managed by my senior team at work which consists of HODs, deputy principal and principal. The culture at my school prioritises in the importance of understanding that all learners can learn only if our teaching is flexible and sensitive to different kinds of learners. The hardest part is ensuring that all learners are part of their daily learning. I teach sixty learners in a 60 learners in a class. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing what I was teaching being understood and playing my role in bettering the lives of the learners I teach.
Pros
Unity among the staff members
Cons
Lack of sufficient teacher development programs
