Teacher Who Went Viral For Her Unique Style Of Teaching Gets Car Gift, Award From Lagos Government, The Lagos State Government has given Mrs. Folasade Adegeye, commonly known as Teacher Sade, a Nigerian primary school teacher who recently rose to prominence online for her distinctive approach to instruction and encouraging her students, a car and an award.
Teacher Sade previously made news after a touching video of her inspiring her students in a novel way appeared online. Before starting the day’s main class, the instructor was spotted motivating her students with some strong quotes.
Before beginning their academic assignments, Teacher Sade let her students read some inspirational quotes emphasizing endurance, resilience, and hard work. She has warmed the hearts of many Nigerians by carefully listening to her students’ words and correcting them when they make mistakes.
Teacher Sade conducted an exclusive interview to BBC News Pidgin after her video went popular online in which she discussed her profession as a teacher and what inspires her to keep inspiring her students.
She told BBC News that despite having been a teacher for 20 years, she only began inspiring her students three years ago after seeing that some of them were dealing with difficulties that frequently sapped their spirits and caused them to consider quitting school.
One of her students, she claimed, works as a carwash to support himself and is on the point of quitting school. She claimed that the student works and sleeps at the carwash. She therefore thought of the concept of inspiring them before the start of the academic activities in an effort to motivate others like him.
The Lagos State Government has finally recognized Teacher Sade and given her a car, just a few weeks after she became viral. The outstanding educator won one of the Lagos 2022 Teachers Merit Awards, according to Punch News.
