After more than 10 years of teaching primary school, Anselme was ready to call it quits.

He was burnt out and losing his desire to teach.

“I followed the “chalk and talk” method,” admits Anselme. “I talked and wrote on the board, I ignored my students. I didn’t think they were smart enough to gain knowledge.”

His mindset began to radically shift more than two years ago when he and his colleagues at Cyuga Primary School started receiving training from our quality education trainers.

Feeling weary, Anselme was open to the training and clung to all of the methods the trainers taught.

He says the lesson planning and teaching methods have transformed the way he teaches. He now recognizes there are different levels of learners in his class and he seeks to help them as individuals.

“My students now see me as a friend and not an enemy. They trust me and I trust them.”

He’s also started using teaching aids, using local materials, such as stones, bottle caps, and rice sacks, to engage his students.

“Since receiving training from Wellspring my work is well done!”

When asked if he considers changing careers, his enthusiasm couldn’t be contained.

“Never!” he said. “My heart is happy teaching. The training I’ve received has changed me. I’ve learned qualities to help me guide and teach learners.”
