“Teaching is the Way of Sharing Knowledge to One Another" - Q&A with Edith Zulu

Edith teaches grade 1 at Mnyaula Community School

What is your favorite subject to teach? Why?

“Teaching is the way of sharing knowledge to one another. As for me, my favorite subject to teach is English language. Since I was little, I used to feel good or rather admire our English teacher. I like teaching English as a subject because I would want my community, city and my country at large to be able to speak and understand this language, in case of our visitors who come from different countries and are not able to speak or understand our language.”


What do you like to do in your free time when you are not teaching?

“Free time is the time or period that one may have to do what he/she wishes to do. In my free time, I like doing the following: having fun with my family and friends especially my daughter whom I feel misses me a lot when I am at work, reading novels and other different story books, taking pictures, cooking, sports and visiting my family members who stay nearby my village.”

In three words, describe your personality.

  1. Joker- I like passing jokes with my family and my friends
  2. Social- I like meeting different people and it just feels as if we have met for a lifetime
  3. Talkative- Yes I am talkative but very sensitive to the mood of the environment

Tell us about your family.

My family? Woah, it’s very interesting. I come from a set of seven ladies and one man and Mummy and Daddy. All together we are eleven since I am a single mother of one girl. My parents are farmers and they depend on farming. My elder sister is married with six children, my only brother is married with two children while my immediately younger sister is also married with two children, and they are all married in the villages and depend on farming. My four sisters are still in school; one is in grade eleven, the other one is in grade eight. Our last born are twins and they are doing grade five at one of the schools under Impact Network. As for now, that’s what I can say about my family whom I love the most and I always say that my family is my pride.

If you could visit any place in the world, where would you visit? And why?

Visiting new places is one of my hobbies and if I could visit any place in the world, I would have visited America.And you know what? The American people are friendly (most of them) and fun, always want to chat with anyone.
