Lesson

I have been teaching Igbo Language since I started reading and writing. I was opportune to read  a lot of Igbo texts as a little child and this helped a lot. At school, I became the class reader, teaching my fellow students how to read and write Igbo.

My special love for vernacular made me to build on this. Fast forward to many years later, I have taught Igbo language in quite a number of schools, and my students have all come to love and appreciate spoken and written Igbo. This is not to mention their outstanding success in external exams such as BECE, WAEC, NECO, etc. I do concentrate on improving readability and writing, as well as spoken Igbo. If you cannot translate an English text into a pure unadulterated Igbo, then you are not my already made student.

I guarantee a tangible improvement within the first two weeks of handling my students.

    British Spring college, Awka

    As a teacher in British Spring College, I started by handling Christian Religious Studies for both Junior and Senior Secondary classes; and IGCSE Religion. I was also a form tutor for one of the junior classes. I was later made the School Disciplinarian, and then a form tutor for the Most senior class then which was SS2. From then on, it was basically from one class to the other, from one subject to the other.(as an intervention/substitute teacher). In my three years stay, I taught other subjects including Civic Education, Social Studies, Security Studies. I was also a form tutor to some of the poorest of students in various classes, both junior and senior. In July 2016, I won an award as the Teacher of the Year, after barely a year and five months in the school, making me the winner with fewest number of service years. My punctuality to school was also remarkable.

    Lorretto Special Science School, Adazi, Anambra State

    I taught Christian Religious Studies to SS1/SS2 students. I was also the moderator for the school's press club during which I relaunched the otherwise defunct school publication, The Brain. It was an enthralling success especially because the publication had not gone into production for over 30 years. Students were able to air their brilliant views in various categories including news, opinion, sports, poems,cartoon, etc. I was also able to organize the debate club for the school during which they attended a lot of intra and inter-school debates.

    I taught various subjects at Krosa, ranging from Computer Studies to Basic Technology, and then Geography. But the one that was my main subject was Geography. I won award as the best performing subject teacher in WAEC 2012, with all my students making either an 'A' or a 'B'. I also won an award for the best presentation during the graduation ceremony in July that year, with my debate team. The debate club which I initiated in the school was also a booming success by the time I left in 2013.
