My name is Simphiwe Xaba, I study in the University of Johannesburg, I am a third year education student and I major in English and History and I will be teaching in both Senior Phase and FET. I chose this History.I chose this profession because I believe that it takes a teacher to motivate learners into becoming great professionals and leaders in the future who are able to stand for what they believe in. I believe that teaching is not about a teacher being the,master of knowledge and learners being the passive receivers of knowledge. I believe that it takes both the teacher and the learner to make the teaching and learning process to take place and for it to run smoothly; in which there is effective communication. I am from Soweto in a township called Senaoane, I love to read and I LOVE food with all my heart and soul, I don't like going out a lot, but I love watching movies except if that movie is a horror. I am loud and my friend think I am talkative but the irony in that is that I am shy at the same time.
