Aquinoe Learning Centre has received an application from another prospective volunteer.
Jade is a primary school teacher who is at present teaching English to pupils between the ages of five and eleven in Paris. She has also written an Early Years’ Reading Scheme aimed at Anglophone children at the language school for which she works.
She has a PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate of Education) specialising in “Early Years”. Whilst teaching in London, she worked primarily with nursery, reception and year one aged children in inner London and has first hand experience of teaching children with varying needs, abilities and backgrounds.
She is hoping to spend some weeks in Kitale from the beginning of June 2011 and should be of great benefit to Aquinoe.
Her aim is to gain an MA in African Studies, starting in September 2011 and will be gaining practical experience whilst in Kenya as well as working in an inclusive environment.
Jean met Jade in London just before Christmas and was impressed with her experience and skills.
