Johnson S. Nyenka
Teacher in Liberia
Baruch H. Juduh is a Grade Three teacher at Kendeja Public School in the suburbs of Monrovia, Liberia’s capital city. He’s passionate about his job, walking several miles a day to reach his school. This is his tenth year being a teacher and he says: “It’s a job I love so much.”
The 32-year-old teacher has been at Bridge supported Kendeja School for two years and thinks his teaching outlook has been totally transformed since he started working here!
“When I began at my school I received training; I learnt to use new technology—which saves me time in planning and helps the children understand better and faster!” he explains.
He says the teachers at his school are able to save time on administrative tasks, giving them more time with their students because of their teacher tablets: “Up-to-date textbooks and prepared lessons mean our students are always improving,” he says.
Baruch is motivated by seeing his pupils practicing what they learn daily. He wants to continue his work as a teacher by developing young people to be, “tomorrow’s champions.”
