The True Power of Collaboration


Jeanette Long is a Life Orientation teacher and the Co-Founder of the LEAP 3 Science and Maths School in Johannesburg, South Africa.

We (LEAP3 en masse) saw the Teach with Africa fellows off [this week] at the Gautrain station nearby the school.

The farewell given by our students was a heartfelt expression of the warm feelings they had developed for the three teachers you had sent to us.

John, Marc and Pam [2010 Teach with Africa Fellows] had given so whole-heartedly of themselves during their time with us that they had touched hearts of all of us. Thank you very much for enabling this time of collaboration.

All three worked in tandem with the LEAP staff and really opened conversations throughout the school on classroom practice. Our task is to keep these discussions ongoing with the stimulus their visit provided.

John, Marc and Pam have each arranged to keep in touch with a member of staff in their subject area so that they can continue collaborating.  There were a number of ideas of where this might lead!

It was a very special time with three very special people.  Thank you.
