Speaking to YEN.com.gh, Shiokwei lauded her pupils saying they practically employed the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) which is the new system of education in Kenya.

She said:

"CBC emphasizes the use of locally available materials. This is their own creation of CBC bakers."

Don't Touch sensitisation program

The teacher who doubles up as a child rights activist noted that she runs a sensitisation program that deals with children's protection.

She said:

"Through this program been able to interact with more than 10000 boys and girls and being a teacher and a mother and having seen cases of children being defiled or molested I felt I need to be that teacher who is safe haven for them."

Shiokwei added:

"I dance and play with the children during breaktime carrying them on my back, hugging them every morning and before they leave for home this has built a rapport with them and they have developed trust having to remind them that am a teacher but their mum too."

She emphasised that her approach is that of a mother teacher relationship, having chosen to fit in their shoes and provide comfort for them.
