An enthusiastic mathematics educator has been inspiring his learners to work hard by making maths and learning fun and interesting.
After a video of his unique and creative approach to molding young minds was shared on social media, South Africans applauded his teaching ability and the way he connects with his students.
The video was shared with the caption:
Teachers hold the responsibility of our youth. With children spending a large portion of their time in classrooms this man obviously understands the importance of his work. No matter the difference it will make it is people like this that our country needs more of.”

Another user, Judy Mylroie , felt that teachers should adopt the same approach and remarked that it was great the learners are enjoying learning and being educated. She added that she wished there were more teachers as dedicated as the man in the video, Briefly.co.za found.
The teacher reminded South Africans of influential educators in their own lives and they shared stories about how they were motivated to learn while in school.
