Let us give a big shout out to teachers in the house.
The primary role of a teacher is to deliver classroom instruction that helps students learn.
In addition to ensuring that students experience academic success, teachers must also function as surrogate parents, mentors and counselors, and even almost-politicians. There is almost no limit to the roles a teacher may play.
Quite alot awaits them as they go back to school to teach children who have been away from school for close to a year.
There will be a lot of counselling and trying to make children unlearn what they learned While some went looking for money.
Some became pregnant, some got into drugs, some got into risky sexual behaviour and many others. We also expect some unrest in many schools.
In short, this pandemic has thought us that indeed teachers are God send. Just tell a teacher near you that: “I love the way you teach and you always make me smile.”
