Mjege Kinyota (M.Ed. 2013)

 

I am glad that I have had the opportunity to very quickly apply the knowledge and skills I acquired at CIE after graduation. After graduating, I returned to my position as an assistant lecturer at Dar es Salaam University College of Education. We are continuing to work on the mission and vision of the Faculty of Education - to prepare highly qualified teachers of the 21st century.

 

Currently I am in the northern part of Tanzania near Uganda where I am supervising student teachers who are doing their teaching practice in this region. Teaching practice is an important component for our pre-service teacher preparation programs and as a supervisor, I am here to observe their teaching as well as assessing their teaching portfolios. One key idea regarding this job that I came with from CIE is that supervision is not aimed at threatening teachers, but is rather a friendly activity where supervisor and students work together to improve the practice of both through mentoring.
