Ariang Primary School Teaching Staff
Ariang School has twenty one members of the teaching staff. The school has over 1,100 children and comprises grades ONE through EIGHT. The teacher:student ratio is often ONE TEACHER TO OVER 50 STUDENTS.
With many teachers across South Sudan having no formal (college) teacher training, it is apparent that teaching and learning is difficult in many schools. Upon realizing this at Ariang School, we embarked on a journey to train our teachers through a rigorous EDUCATORS EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM to help upgrade the quality of education in our school. Since the inception of the program in 2018, the level of teaching and learning has continually gone high and our school was mentioned the best primary school in the county.

He is committed to Ariang Primary School and believes strongly in investing in the future of his community through education. In addition to his leadership responsibilities, Kuer also teaches 5th Grade Social Studies, 7th Grade Math and 8th Grade Science.
