How it all began…

Good morning world, before i begin to share my story(ies) as a teacher, you may like to know a lil about this personality.

I am a Miss (seen from the name of this blog, ryt?)
I am also a graduate of Sociology from one of the very few good schools in Nigeria and yeah, i attended one of the best secondary schools in Nigeria. I am very passionate about a better Nigeria (you may have seen from some of my posts here) and I believe my generation is one that will make a positive change.

I have been consulting (concept development) for a while now, something i find very interesting and challenging and of course, quite profitable. I am also a ‘business woman’… So, the reason for my choice of this job (teaching) is definitely NOT for the money.

I have tried to give counselling, within my capacity, to young people with the lil knowledge and wisdom bestowed on me :D. This coupled with the experiences i have also had growing up, i am working towards assisting young people grow. I notice that there are so many loopholes that need to be adequately filled, too many issues bothering young people that need to be properly addressed.

Fortunately for me, during one of my ‘consulting jobs’, i took a visit to ‘this school’ to meet with one of my ‘clients’, who later turned out to invite me to work at the school. I refused initially for many other reasons, but then i had a rethink. i thought that if everyone keeps ‘chickening’ away from being a teacher, and waiting for the ‘right, best, white collar’ job to come, oh well, i do not see a ‘growing’ Nigeria.

Immediately, like a functional spring, i rose up to take the offer, boldly and proudly. And here i am today, with all smiles, a proud teacher of the younger generation.

Join me in riding through Le Journey.

  1. Aunty Aduke! Teacher of life!!! Those kids are lucky and fortunate to have you teach them. If every youth is like you and accepts teaching as a credible profession, then some of the country’s challenges will be solved. 🙂

  2. Hmmm! My dear Miss Aduke. Happy to know you care and concerned about the GenerationNext. Just to let you know that you are not alone on this journey. More grease to your elbow.

  3. wow! This is absolutely inspiring… crossing that line between simply talking about wanting a better Nigeria and actually doing something towards that. May the Lord continue to strengthen you.
