Ebook review

Cover Image

Please check out my children’s picture book. I’ve been working on the illustrations for quite some time now it’s a big relief that I finally managed to publish it on KDP. I was so excited when I found out that amazon allows us to self publish books and it doesn’t even cost a cent if you do everything by yourself. I decided to teach myself the process and I couldn’t wait to try. Now that I finally did I’m looking forward to publishing more children’s picture books. Now I’ve managed to publish an ebook but I’m working on publishing a paper bag very soon.


What it takes to be a good teacher

I think a teacher is someone who’s able to share his or her knowledge to others and also be able to learn from other people as well. At the end of the day, we teach what we’ve learned either in school, magazines, books, television, the internet etc. The school system can test our knowledge about what we’ve learned and we must be able to interpret and apply our knowledge through tests and exams. You can also develop yourself by reading books or magazines every day and research the internet.

I believe that to be a good teacher you should love what you do. Teaching must be a passion for you; don’t do it just for money. Learners love teachers who are kind to them. Teachers must be able to act as a parent, a doctor, nurse and a social worker to their learners. The learners must also be able to put their trust in you, by that they can be able to share their personal information with you. If a learner is facing some problems, you must be able to solve them. You must also get to know your learners, by visiting their homes but don’t just pay a surprise visit ask the principal and write the letter to the parents or someone who might be living with the learner.

I’ve enjoyed my teaching journey, and I love it so much. Being able to teach in different kinds of situation and circumstances has been a great experience for me. I had also experienced teaching in a normal school and in a special school where I’m still teaching today. The following pictures it’s me and the learners I was teaching during my teaching practice, as you can see I was very happy and enjoying the moment.

Time went on and I got to experience new things. I loved and enjoyed working in all of these schools but the one I’m in now I love the most. At first, it was uncomfortable for me, but I soon realized it was my real calling. I asked myself so many times, why was I the one called for the job. Now I realized God wanted me to help learners who cannot go to their normal school to learn just because they’re sick. I help these learners in so many ways. In the hospital school we teach the same curriculum as in the normal school, our learners don’t miss out on their school work as we take over from what they’ve learned in their normal schools.

The pictures above are some of the learners I teach in the hospital. I realized that teaching them sometimes makes them forget that they’re in the hospital and that they’re ill. Some are just facing physical injuries but they also feel pain, mostly after being from the operation and after the nurses have dressed them. All in all, I love what I do and I’m looking forward to so many great experiences to come.


Being a blogger

Being a blogger is not easy. Firstly, you need to think about how you can come up with a topic that will be very useful to your audience. That may be difficult for you. Secondly, you think of so many things that could go wrong when writing your blog. Will you be able to provide useful content? The only person who can answer that question is you. For you to answer that question you must first calm down, relax, and think about why you started that website from the beginning. I am very sure you had a reason you wanted to have a website like me, I have so many reasons I can think of. For me, it’s freedom. I do have a full-time job I’m a teacher, I teach 1, 2 and 3rd grade. I teach in a special school, but not learners with disabilities. I teach hospitalized learners, who are unable to attend in their normal schools because they are ill. I love my job I don’t complain because teaching is also something I’m passionate about.

I got this job immediately after completing my Degree in Education. I was very lucky because some of my friends didn’t get jobs as fast as I did. I love writing and reading as well. I spend most of my time on the internet searching for ideas that can develop me and make me better. But sometimes it’s not easy because of work and school at the same time. I’m currently doing my Honours Degree in education as well, so as much as I love writing and researching as it is one of the reasons I opened my website, the time is not on my side. I have families to look after as well. My family in KZN where my mom, grandma and my siblings live and my family in Gauteng where Live right now, with my son, my stepdaughter and my boyfriend. I have to provide for them because right now I’m the only one who’s working fulltime job. My boyfriend is in cameras and videography.

I bought a house in 3 months after getting my first job. I enjoy owning my own home because of being free also. I was renting for a while at least for three months but I was not happy renting because there are so many rules like you shouldn’t bring your boyfriend and family for visits. I’m sure other people are happy renting, but for my personal experience renting is not for me. So the topic is about “being a first-time blogger” and why it is not easy. Then I asked myself a question that every first-time blogger can ask also. I asked myself, why I wanted to be a blogger. So I said freedom, which means two things for me, freedom of expression and financial freedom.

Financial freedom to me means a lot. Does everyone want to be financially free? I imagine myself one day not needing a full-time job or working for someone to make money. I can employ myself and be my boss and that’s what young people should think about these days. We can create our businesses and build an empire and also create jobs instead of sitting and hoping to get a job. We need to think of building a brand that will generate a passive income in the future. There are so many ways to do that, you just have to know it is possible but it won’t happen overnight.
