Oprah Winfrey has returned from a trip to the school for girls she opened in South Africa, has announced that she will be going back soon… as a teacher.

The media giant has revealed she will be teaching girls at the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa a special course titled It’s Life 101.

“Should be fun since I love to teach. And they’re like sponges,” she said. “Like 12th graders everywhere, this first class is both anxious and excited about going to college. Most will be the first in their family. So it’s a very big deal for them, and they’re feeling the pressure.”

The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa opened in 2007 with 150 low-income seventh-and-eighth graders, the school now enrolls about 300.
