Today is Teacher’s day!
I am particularly grateful and thankful to my Parents who are unarguable my first teachers in this world.
In my early days, my father of blessed memory would gather I and my siblings and teach us how to read, write and speak. He was a lecturer and so dedicated to our education. Nothing matters to him so much like our education. He practically gave his all to see us become better each day academically. With him, failing wasn’t an option.
My mother on the other hand, is a retired primary school teacher. Like they’d say “Umu ndi nkụzi na ama akwụkwọ”, Teacher’s children are always intelligent, we were not exempted in this notion. I and my siblings are all University graduates and still topping up.
Of all the things people fall in love with, I am in love with education and this love sprouted from the very foundation I got.
Adamazi is here today, making her little impart in our society because of these great minds, that decided to put our education first before any other thing. Though one has left this world but their inputs will always be felt, appreciated and never overemphasized. Rest on Papa.
Being a teacher cuts across the classroom, if you have ever imparted in someone’s life, you are a teacher. I celebrate you.
To every other person I’ve met while climbing this very ladder, thank you for being a tool for the nation’s building.
Happy Teacher’s day!!!
