When children are rescued from forced labor and brought to the Touch A Life Care Center, they join us at various ages and education levels. Most children entering our care have had little or no previous education opportunities, making it virtually impossible for students to integrate directly into a class with their peers.
As a result, a school was created on the Care Center property to meet the needs of these children. Students are taught in small classrooms with a higher teacher to student ratio. Here, students can learn at their own pace and can more quickly progress to an appropriate grade level. We are so blessed to have skilled and dedicated teachers who meet our students where they’re at and adapt to meet their needs. One such teacher is Theresah Amankwah. Let’s get to know her!
How long have you been teaching at Touch A Life?
I have been a teacher here at the Care Center for six years.
What is your favorite subject to teach?
My favorite subject is English, but I can teach other subjects like Integrated Science, Social Studies, and Ghanaian language.
Have you always wanted to be a teacher?
Yes, since I was a young girl.
What is your favorite part of teaching at Touch A Life?
My favorite part about teaching is when the kids understand something for the first time. That makes me happy!
Between teaching and home life Theresah became engaged and plans to her fiancé, Philip, in October. Many blessings for the future!
