Inspiring teachers

Do you remember a teacher/s from your school days that you admire because they imparted you in a positive way and still remember them today?

Rita Pierson’s talk reminds me of Mrs Adeniran from my primary school days, she was my very first class teacher – caring and always took interest in her pupils work. At the end of primary one, Mrs Adeniran came to my primary two class teacher to say my friend and I were special pupils so to look after us – I was not sure what that meant but I felt special and always tried to be more attentive in class as I didn’t want to let Mrs Adeniran down – the memory lives on. How I wish all my teachers were like Mrs Adeniran, oh well, I can be Mrs Adeniran to younger people around me now, I suppose.


Have you ever had a teacher that you really liked?
