Atang Maphaka

My name is Atang Maphaka, and I am 27 years old. I live in a marginalized and hotspot community, Samora Machel. I have a strong love for languages. I am multilingual. I can speak and write more than two South African languages. I studied at one of the most prestigious universities in Africa, Stellenbosch University. I hold a Bachelor of Education (honours) degree at Stellenbosch University, specializing in educational development and democracy. The reason I became a teacher is that I always wanted to give back to the community by making a difference in young people’s lives and to inspire the same passion and interest. To nurture pupils to respect diversity, participate in democratic affairs, and unfair practices against human rights. Fourthly, the aim of becoming a teacher is to guide and prepare learners to respond appropriately to life’s responsibilities and opportunities. Moreover, to equip them with the knowledge, skills, and values to make informed decisions. It is our responsibility as educators to make sure every child has access to and benefits from a top-notch education. This calls for a variety of early childhood development services and initiatives that promote young children’s overall development. Building the future of young minds for their betterment to become the leaders of tomorrow that are equipped to be responsible citizens of South Africa.
