Working as a teacher for the first time was an entirely new challenge which I accepted when I found myself in need of creating new professional opportunities and socially integrating in Geneva, after my previous employer went through a reorganisation of its Sales & Marketing department.
What were the challenges
Assume the role of a teacher of history and geography in German for pupils aged 12 – 15.
Manage daily school life (surveillance, homework, excursions etc.) for the Secondaire I – level at the gymnasium.
The approach taken
- Refreshened long forgotten school lessons and gathered new knowledge
- Invested significant amounts of time in the study of the curriculum and subjects
The results achieved
- Acquired pedagogic experience
- Achieved literacy in the use of state-of-the-art interactive teaching tools
