Sao Tome & Principe: Reflections of a Foreign Teacher

Raphaela Nazaré reflects about her experience as a Brazilian teacher in Sao Tome and Principe. She says that although the students are more disciplined than what she had seen in Brazil, the ferule is still a practice in Saotomean schools. Raphaela wonders if “this type of educational regime is valid to keep the hierarchy inside a school”.

    It does not seem unreasonable to suggest that being a foreign teacher means someone who is new in the city and uncomfortable in the process delivering the words to the students in the class. The paper writing service reviews also can help.Apart from that the entire class room could be unease place to continue as a professional teacher. Tough the entire experiences in Sao Tome and Principe were good in comparison with the Brazilian school which at least gave Sara Moriea some sort of comfort zone to feel well. Thanks for sharing.
