      Hello Esther,
      Regarding the queries you have raised. May I offer the following responses;
      a) To be competent and enjoy any area of study or learning, requires first and foremost, great motivation and desire to learn. The motivation to discover new things should be internalised.
      b) On the part of teaching without a books is as result years of teaching ICT. And besides that I am passionate about ICT.

      Hope I have answered you.
