Celebrated every 5th October, World Teachers' Day is set aside to commemorate an honorable profession and the people who inspire change, imagination and learning through teaching.
Following the theme this year, "Young Teachers", we would go down memory lane talking about the teachers who stroke a chord in our lives.
What's the name of your favorite teacher and why?
Tell us about a young teacher you know?
Let's talk!4 Comment(s)
As a secondary school student I had amazing teachers who worked tirelessly to ensure I performed excellently, ergo, my best teacher can't go to one person.
-Ms Blessing Sunday was not only my guardian in Junior secondary school, she was my teacher and acted as my mum would when it came to issue concerning me.
-Ms Elechi was another teacher who always gave me the opportunity to speak up when I wanted to, she made me realize how important my voice and contribution are.
-Mr Igwe was my dedicated Js2 math teacher who not only taught with passion but made my classmates and I understand that we were special and as such we could excel if we wished.
-Ms Odua was my chemistry teacher, she was such a fierce and dedicated teacher who not only knew her onion but wanted all the girls' she taught ( I went to a girls' school in my senior secondary) to do well and making huge sacrifices to see to it that we did well.
- Ms Madu was an extraordinary teacher who helped me to understand chemistry very well, though Ms Odua was an excellent teacher her teaching methods were quite advanced for me and as such I was always lost and failed woefully in my Ss1. In SS2 when Ms Madu came to my school, she was assigned to SS2 B class, which happened to be my class, she was so motherly towards us that I could easily approach her with my challenges in chemistry and without hesitation she took me up as her personal project and saw to it that I understood chemistry excellently before handing my class over to Ms Odua in our SS3 ( Ms Odua taught all SS3 science student so she could prepare them for WAEC)
- Mr Joshua Isirima is currently lecturing me in the university, he is an excellent lecturer who I always consult when I am confronted by a difficulty in any course whatsoever ( he is that smart ). Despite being a university environment where every man is expected to mind his business, Mr Joshua picked an interest in my academics in my year 2 and has ever since acted as my father in school. He punishes me severely when I mess up and never ceases to chastise me when I fall below his expectations.
These amazing teachers have indeed contributed a tremendous amount of love and knowledge in the building of my foundation as a person, they have made my foundation solid with their parental love . They have made the world a better place by not neglecting their job. Teachers are indeed priceless.

Wow! It is an amazing time to celebrate those that have structured our lives and dedicated themselves to us. I have been blessed with great teachers all my life.
From Mr Bayo who taught me in my primary school. He made my foundation really strong and he was committed to the growth of every of his students. I have no idea where he is but I wish to thank him.
To my secondary school teachers, Mr Abubakar, the man who taught a whole textbook from his head without missing a thing, he was A TEACHER, he literally opened us up and poured himself into us. Mr Idris, Ha! He made life bearable for us, though he was a Corper, he did more with his interaction and push to do better. Organized the press club, supervised and taught us well in class. Mrs. Akingbehin, the biology and literature teacher that made biology so fun that we all had scientific names for ourselves. Mrs Osang, God bless her for all she did.
University was beautiful. Mr. Ishola Lamidi gave himself to us and taught from his heart. And so much more.
God bless and keep them all.~Edna Wande 0 Replies View
Mr. Viome Showers wasn't a regular school teacher. He taught my friends and I several times when we prepared for exams while in Secondary School. He is a very knowledgeable and patient person. He made me overcome my fear for mathematics. Whenever I got solving wrong and decided to quit, he's always there to encourage and motivate me to never give up on myself. With his coaching, we knew we were mightier than any 'Almighty Formula'. Lol. He made maths interesting!
Mr. Showers was not just a maths teacher, he is a diversed scholar! He teaches various computer packages, including coding.
He is a role model in good character!
All the students he taught are now graduates and undergraduates doing well at their various fields of study.
Teachers are coaches, mentors and role models. They help us harness our potential and guide us in the right direction.
Happy World Teachers Day
