Oprah Winfrey to teach at her all-girls school in South Africa

July 7, 2011 Oprah Winfrey

Los Angeles, CA, United States (Celebrity News Service) - The girls at the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa are already a very lucky bunch, but now they're going to have a class taught by Miss O herself.

In a letter to fans, Winfrey talked about her recent visit to South Africa where she spent time with the girls. "They were all stressed for tests, but doing fine," she said.

But now she's taking advantage of her time off and is planning to take on the role of teacher when she returns to the school in the fall (Miss O, by the way, has always said that if she wasn't a big media titan, she would have wanted to be a teacher.).

The class, she says, is called "Life 101," and it'll be taught to the school's 12th graders.

"I'm going back this fall to teach a class; calling it Life 101… All the stuff I wish someone had told me about how the world works," Oprah said in her e-mail. "Should be fun since I love to teach. And they're like sponges."

"Like 12th graders everywhere, this first class is both anxious and excited about going to college," she added. "Most will be the first in their family. So it's a very big deal for them, and they're feeling the pressure."

Who better to teach the master class? I feel another OWN show in the works!

Oprah also joined the school's first graduating class stateside earlier this year as they flew over to check out colleges.
