  1. I must say that working full time and studying part is not an easy task. The research is a very time consuming task and so my biggest fear is not being able to complete the research on time. Sometimes I get so frustrated by the amount of work to be done. As a Grade Four teacher I have to ensure I spent time with my student to prepare them for their Literacy and Numeracy Examinations. I know that I need to manage my time properly so that I can get it done with the help of the Almighty God, my lecturer and support from my family.

  2. One of my greatest challenges is to complete the research in the appropriate that it should be done. Even though I have adequate resources at my disposal I fear that it may not be in the correct structure of how it may be required by the college. In an attempt to overcome this challenge is dialogue with me research supervisor on a regular basis. I also have family members who are competent in this area of study and also contribute to my development of the research, their aid helps me in garnering confidence in doing my best.

  4. I continue to pray for a sound mind so that fear will not consume me. My greatest fear on the completion of my research paper has been finding adequate and current literature on the topic I am pursuing. Not just that but I also fear that my research paper will not be finished within the specified time given. Nevertheless, I am working on it as best as possible so that it will be completed for it to be handed in, in May.

  5. The challenge experienced with research is that of finding the needed information to successfully complete the research process. However by blogging and talking to my lecturers as well as other persons who have completed other research, I know I will overcome my fears.

  6. “Research is to see what everybody else has seen and to think what nobody else has thought”( Albert Szent- Gyorgyi). It’s creating new knowledge. To say I have no fears or challenges as it relates to research would be an obvious lie. Research is a process and each stage has its own set of challenges. With each challenge, being mediocre would be my biggest fear. To overcome this fear I intend to do better than my best in completing this research with the help of research lecturers and supervisor. Some challenges will prove difficult to overcome but I stand by my personal philosophy, “The greatest pleasure is not in never falling but in rising every time you fall”.
