In March, we asked the Curriki community to submit their personal stories about how Curriki has made a difference in what they do. We were excited to receive stories from all over the world, including Russia, Kenya, Chile, India and more!
Abomo Roro of Ethiopia is our grand prize winner in the Teacher category. Congratulations Abomo! We will feature our other teacher winners, as well as the parent and student winners, in future posts.
Here is Abomo’s story.
- Name: Aboma Roro

- Occupation: Teacher

“Curriki has helped me in providing resources for what I am teaching. I started to teach using e-lessons since I started to use Curriki resources. My favorite Curriki resources are power points and texts for chemistry courses. It really helped me in saving my time that I should spend in gathering hard copies and changing it into well organized soft copies, and also helped me in saving my money that I must invest in buying different supportive materials. My students have benefited from it. They absolutely feel happy when I am using Curriki power points in teaching them a given topic. They are also getting a well consolidated handout that I sometimes provide them after downloading from Curriki contents. I have shared it in some cases to supplement my preparation and in some other cases my preparations were fully replaced with Curriki contents.”
Thank you Abomo! One of our popular science resources is The Free High School Science Texts: Textbooks For High School Students Studying The Sciences (FHSST) available on Curriki. Simply type “FHSST” in the Curriki Search box and you’ll find a variety of helpful resources.
Please share below if you have other favorite resources you would recommend to Abomo.
