Pakati Primary school profile 6 – Mrs Rufaro, Environmental Science Teacher

Born: Mutare

Trained: Bondolfi Teachers College 2002 – 2005

Specialised in Environmental Science, can also teach Agriculture

At Pakati since 2010

Life at Pakati is fairly good, though I wish to transfer and be with my family which resides in Marondera. I learnt alot from my seniors who gave me fruitful advice, a thumbs up to my father Mr Kupara. Most parents have negative attitudes towards teachers, some don’t even support their children in school. This makes teaching hard work. If I weren’t a teacher I would be an Environmental Health Worker.

Hobbies / interests: reading, socialising, and I like indoor games such as chess and darts. I am also interested in playing ,awn tennis
