Here's what his day looks like at Beautiful Gate.
Around 6am. I check the weather immediately when I wake up, I cycle alone from home to Muizenberg beach which takes about 2 hours or at least 2 hours and a half. I come back quick to take a bathe and then cycle to work.
09h00: I get to work on my bicycle and first thing I do is coffee and then emails, I am a Sales Force “genius” if I may put it that way. I check Sales force and fix errors if there are any.
12h00: Prepare for class, actually I prepare what I need to do in class because we attend workshops with Wordworks and we learn a lot games and ideas on how to do literacy in class, so I use those ideas in my class as well. It’s a lot of preparation.
13h00: Its lunch time so I do not take lunch outside. I sit on my desk while eating.
14h00: I’m curious about Sales Force so I’m always checking what’s new or what can I learn every day.
14h30: I cycle to the container where I we do the after school programme. We don’t our programme in a school, so we have old containers where the children can do their homework after school and do extra mural activities.
15h00: At this time, I am in class and we check home works and do activities. If it’s not raining outside, we practice soccer.
16h30: The children prepare their snack which is a nutritious meal with fruit. Then we do the dishes and go home.
17h00: I stay behind with soccer boys and we have our meetings because I like to do checkups to hear about their class or day. Then I cycle home.
18h00: When I get home I take my dogs out for a walk then we come back and have supper.
