There is no denying the fact that Teaching is one of the most under-appreciated profession in Ghana and Africa as a whole. Without teachers, we would not have doctors, lawyers, CEOs, engineers, authors, and the list goes on. Teachers go through additional schooling, work nights and weekends, and somehow have a knack for holding on to their sanity while dealing with other people’s kids. Behind every successful person is a good teacher, yet, educators barely get any props for making the world go round. It’s about time we change that.
The Minister of Education, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, has set a good example worthy of emulation. He has emphasized the importance of teachers throughout his academic journey and the need to show more appreciation to the output of teachers by paying his primary one (1) teacher a visit in her residence.
Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum visited and honored Ms. Clara Oppong at her residence in Jachie. 96-year-old Miss Clara was the primary 1 teacher at Jachie Anglican Primary School. According to Dr. Yaw Osei, Miss Clara’s kind words and motivation built a solid foundation for him. Below are photos of Dr. Yaw Osei’s visit to his primary 1 teacher.
This gesture by the Minister of Education is an attitude which most of us should imitate and show appreciation to teachers’ efforts.
