Oprah To Teach High School In South Africa!

| Filed under: InspirationOprah Winfrey

oprah winfrey to teach high school

Even with all the work that needs to be done on her network, Oprah is still finding new ways to be an inspiration to us all!!!

This fall, Oprah Winfrey will teach a high school class called It's Life 101 to girls at a school she opened in South Africa.

Here's what she had to say about her future students, whom she just visited during a trip:

"They were all stressed for tests, but doing fine. No major crisis this trip. I love being with them and talking to them about all things important. When I'm there I'm talking from the time I get up till I go to bed, about EVERYTHING teenage girls are going through. It's the same all over the world."

More from Oprah on how she feels about teaching the class:

"Should be fun since I love to teach. And they're like sponges. Like 12th graders everywhere, this first class is both anxious and excited about going to college. Most will be the first in their family. So it's a very big deal for them, and they're feeling the pressure.

Sounds like it will be an a-mazing experience!

And Oprah: If you need a TA, let us know! We'd LOVE to help you teach!!!! Ha!

Would U like to take a class taught by Oprah?

    Don't you need a masters degree to teach? It takes real talent to be a good teacher, knowing the subject matter and knowing how to teach. I think more than a huge ego is required.

    Her OWN network is doing so poorly with crappy reality programming. Why doesn't she save the soaps like All My Children and General Hospital. Look at all of the stars who came from these shows. She will save jobs of the many workers behind the scenes and win more respect. Plus she will get viewership on OWN. Back on topic: Why isn't she supporting American school kids? We're falling behind the rest of the educated nations and becoming a nation of morons with attention spans of a fruit flies.

    Fuckin' nig jigga!! She's so desperate for the spotlight…she only just left us for fucks sake!! What about the fact that she let people sexually assault the students…FUCK one got pregnant. Way to go ya big fat ugly Jungle Bunny!! What the fuck is she gonna teach them?? How to get really really really lucky?? Lmfao!!

    I'm disappointed she's not putting more effort into the American school system. She lives in the States, she knows damn well how dire the education system is, and even featured the documentary "Waiting for Superman", but then chooses to focus her money, time and effort in another country? She said it was bc american kids are 'more interested in material things'…but that's why we need to help kids refocus, it doesn't mean you ignore it.

    Good for her, I admire how she is always finding ways to give back! The empire she has built for herself is proof enough for me that she knows what shes doing, I wish I could take a class taught by her!

    She's not doing this with American children in the American school system because it wouldn't get her as much praise and publicity from the media as doing it in a place like Africa is getting her. Oprah's got a huge ego; proof of that is the fact she doesn't think she needs to get an education to teach like REAL teachers have to do.

    How did Oprah become so famous just because she had a talk show?
    Now she feels she is the female POPE.
    Is she a teacher.?
    Why can't she retire and go away.?

    Re: poodlewithamohawk – Suppporting American kids would not have gotten her as much publicity.
    She alwways has to make herself look like THE QUEEN.
    In reality behind the scenes she is controlling and mean.
    We've seen it.
    She should have saved the Soaps.
