South African teacher with 100% pass rate

Help

Shape Msiza teaches English teacher in a South African township north of Johannesburg and her pupils say she is one of a kind.

She recently won an award for excellence in secondary school teaching.

There is good reason for the accolade: She always gets 100% pass rates for her final year, or Grade 12, students, even though many face massive social problems.

She told BBC Africa what motivates her to give students the inspiration they need to succeed.
