CAN A TEACHER CHANGE CAREER?

By Amunga Peter

Many teachers have had EVENTFUL moments working for TSC or in private schools over the years.

The question always is… Must you die a teacher eating chalk?

You have learnt all you can as a teacher, seen it all and done it all. You have rose the ranks. Having joined as a fresh graduate from a TTC or college you worked your way up and your may be a headteacher or principal. Is that your end?

It is NOT.

Dr. Myles Munroe speaks of putting your ceiling too low and reaching it too fast. You can push your ceiling higher. My teacher used to say.. the Sky is your limit… Indeed it is true. Teaching in class alone cannot be your limit. We can take on new things.

There are many examples of teachers who left class…. and are doing well in business, in cooperates like Safaricom, in banking, in international jobs in the UN, politics etc.

If looking to leave teaching either after retirement or before, and probably taking on a new challenge and joining a bigger team, then you need some more skills, more training. Some extra education helps.

Those days, you had to enroll in some university, or do evening classes. Covid 19 has brought a new way of doing things.

Mwalimu and your dependants can enroll in online classes to learn a new skill, get accredatiion and move on to a new outfit. YES YOU CAN.

That is why #SomaNaBonga appeals so much..

A game changer that will change lives of classroom teachers.
