Dear Reader, Teaching has been a time honored tradition for hundreds of years. Whether you want to pursue a career in teaching or you wish to volunteer your time as a teacher, it is important to learn key techniques which can improve your teaching abilities. Without the right tools and information, it could take you years and cost you a small fortune to discover the secrets to teaching. Instead of spending a fortune on so-called experts or knocking yourself out with the old trial and error method, there is an easier way to be the teacher you have always dreamed of. Now theres good news .... I wont deny that there are a ton of books out there on teaching. Unfortunately the problem with most books on the subject of teaching is that they are either filled with plenty of promises and no solid techniques and strategies to back up those promises or they contain only one or two pieces of useful information and not a comprehensive look at everything you need to know to succeed in teaching. Introducing The Teachers Guide! Teachers Guide breaks the mold of all the other teaching books and manuals you have heard and read about. It presents solid, proven steps to help you learn how to be the teacher youve always wanted. Sounds too good to be true? Its not and I can prove it with Teachers Guide! But, first a word of introduction. My name is Dan. A few years ago I found myself in a situation not too different from your own. Like almost everyone else, I longed to be a better teacher, but I had no idea where to start! None of the books I had read on teaching had been able to solve my problem. Some of them were so mired down in fancy words and technicalities that it was a miracle I ever got past the first chapter! Others might have passed on a helpful hint or two, but did not solve my problems. Thats when it hit me! If I couldnt find a comprehensive guide on teaching, then why not create my own? I was tired of flipping back and forth through tons of books for the few bits of information that could help me; but I reasoned that if I put all those little tidbits of info together then I might actually be able to begin understanding the secrets to teaching. The next morning I furiously began to read through all of the teaching books that I had purchased over the past three years and take down the pertinent notes. I didnt stop there either. I swallowed my pride and enlisted the help of people that I knew who had been personally successful in teaching. It took awhile to sort through all of the information I had gathered and compile the notes I received from the experts I consulted, but when I was finished I sat back and was completely stunned. Right here in front of me was the information that I had been seeking all along! From the notes I had taken from several articles on the subject of teaching, as well as my own experiments, I had comprised a comprehensive compendium on the subject of teaching. I sat back in stunned amazement! It was all there! The Work of the Teacher How to Stimulate Thinking The Importance of Play in Education Classroom Lessons The Importance of Individual Differences How to Cultivate Moral Attitudes Then I decided to try an experiment and put all of my hard work to the test. The next morning I awoke with new determination. This time I would not fail! Suddenly, I was excited! I absolutely could not believe the difference. Suddenly it was all so clear! I could easily implement proven strategies without having to wade through a mountain of fancy words and difficult to understand terms. What happened next was nothing short of amazing! These strategies not only worked, but the results were completely astonishing. As my success with teaching grew, I started to feel guilty. I knew there were a lot more people out there who wanted the same solutions I had found. Somehow, it just didnt seem right to keep it to myself. One night as I made some changes to my book, I wondered how many other people might have the same problem? After all, if I couldnt find a decent comprehensive teaching manual, what were the chances anyone else could? Given the tremendous success I had encountered using my manual; I was sure that other people could take the same easy to read and understands strategies and achieve success as well. Right now youre probably thinking, Yeah, right. Theres a ton of teaching books out there. What makes you and your book so different? I wont deny for a minute that there are some good teaching books out there-after all Ive read most of them, if not all of them. The difference, however; is that my book blows all the others out of the water because it doesnt just focus on one area of the game. You get everything you need to understand how to teach successfully. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is left out. All the fundamentals are there. And thats just a small taste of what you will get when you order the Teachers Guide Absolutely everything anyone would ever need to learn how to successfully teach is contained within this impressive work. Okay, Im sold, but whats this incredible resource going to cost me? When I first began to think about putting my manual on the market, my first thought was to create a seminar where people could actually get the benefits in a hands-on way. I know not everyone loves to read, so that seemed to be a great solution. But, I quickly realized how time consuming that would be for everyone so instead, I decided I wanted as many people as possible to reap the benefits of this fabulous manual. So, Im willing to slash the cost just so you can take advantage of the incredible information within Teachers Guide.

'Why I Hate Teaching'!

'That's why I hate teaching'!

This was the exact remark by a school child. This child while in a peer teaching class show some glimpses of becoming a potential teacher. By the time I approached her with applause of ‘hey, you’ll make a good teacher’; the response, ‘God forbid!’ was both shocking and disappointing. ‘But why do you hate teaching’, I later asked. Mirabel came up with these points…

-         Teachers are wicked
-         Teachers are partial
-         Teachers are poor
-         I don’t like teachers at all! And I will never be a teacher.

I felt so bad somehow that day. I was like saying within me, ‘these kids are ingrates; imagine in all our efforts to help them, they still see us as wicked, partial and poor’.

Is Mirabel’s assessment of teachers in sync with realities? I would want to know. So I sampled opinion from up to 10 children from different classes from JSS 1  to SS1. This was the exact response from students:

·       Teachers are wicked… 8 out of 10 affirmed to this
·       Teachers are partial… 6 out of 10 affirmed to this
·       Teachers are poor … 10 out of 10 affirmed to this.

What a negative assessment!

It got me into deep thinking for many days. I felt that if our school children could see teachers in bad light, then it would be difficult to help them, which is the exact reason why we are teachers.

While, I knew too well that the students’ submission might not be far from a subjective opinion, I still admit that they were not altogether far from the truth.

The first thing I did was to see how to work on myself so as to avoid such ignoble tags. Next, I came up with a program for teachers, Teachers’ Re-Orientation Program (TROP), where we gather every fortnight (usually on Fridays) to deliberate on our work as teachers and see where we were not doing things right, proffer solution to make it work. The teachers were so cooperative, that the transformation it brought to the school then was noticed both by the management and students.

We continued until I left that school.

This happened some few years ago in my early years of teaching among secondary school children. You will be surprised to hear that the girl in question ended up as a classroom teacher. I learnt of this the first time I came in contact with her on Facebook.

‘Good day Sir, is that Mr Chima?’
‘Very likely, who are you girl?
‘Hmm! So you’ve forgotten that your ‘naughty’ Mirabel of a girl!
I went through memory lane before replying… ‘You mean Mirabel at Progressive College Aba?’

Exactly the girl Mirabel. We had a long chat and there and then I learnt she was a teacher.

‘Mirabel, are you wicked? Are you partial? Are you poor?  I took her memory to the past. She smiled and told me that she now appreciate teachers and feel for them.

Meanwhile, her point then remains relevant today. According to her, she has met many cruel and wicked teachers, met few who are partial in treating the kids under them; and generally teachers are poor. She told me she is into teaching because of her passion to impact her generation positively, but wondered why a lot of people have messed up such noble profession, making it difficult for young people to dare that career path.

The big question here is…
Are teachers wicked, partial and poor?

We are not seeking for the students’ opinions now.

Teachers are wicked!!!

For my close to 20 years experience as a teacher (I started teaching September 1998, not as a professional teacher anyway), I have seen many wicked and cruel teachers, who handle school children as if they are handling demons. When you hear teachers abuse their students/pupils, spank them mercilessly just for poor performance, you got to wonder if such teachers were ever called to teach. Some others even go to the ridiculous extent of marking down some kids out of pure hatred for the kids or their parents.

You know what? School children observe these things and it damages their emotion, thereby making it hard for them to learn under us.

Solution Meet
Teachers should be made to understand the import of their professional calling. For school children today, teachers are like their foster parents. In fact, many school children put more faith in their teachers than their parents; hence such faith should not be betrayed. Children are in school to learn and we must do our best in love to help them attain that noble objective.

While, we need disciplinary measures in schools to curb children’ excesses, we should not make cane our primary tool of instruction and discipline, neither should we resort to name calling and abusive languages.

Teachers are partial!!!

If you’ve not seen such, I have seen and have been in the centre of controversy with such teachers over the years. Aside applying the principle of positive preferential, which is both healthy and helpful, teachers should not practice favouritism in the classroom. Whatever special love you have for a particular kid in your class should be kept between you and the child, not before the rest of the children. Unfortunately, most of these teachers practicing favouritism are mere hypocrites.

I have met teachers who would sideline a child who supposed to be a perfect fit for a particular activity or position in the classroom, only to give that privilege to the child of the school owner or a child from a rich home, all in an attempt to gain something in return. And be sure, the rest of the children in the classroom observe that ‘our teacher is a freaking hypocrite, so partial and irritating’.

You easily correct the mistakes of that child that carries your bag and buys you gift every new term, but when it comes to others, you bark like an angry dog, run through their work with a mischievous red, and fling the rest through the window.

You see why Mirabel was actually right in her earlier observation!

Solution meet
You’ve got to treat every child equal. They are all potential greats. You will be hurting your future by practicing partiality among your children today, as you don’t know the one with the golden bag.

Teachers are poor!!!

Of course, teachers are financially poor all over Africa and across the globe. The government cares less about them, when it comes to remuneration upgrade. The worse hits are private school teachers in Africa, where school owners are only interested in increasing the work load of teachers and not their wages.

But the question is, should teachers be poor…? With their wealth of knowledge, are they not supposed to be hot cakes, going only for the highest bidder?

Today teachers should shake off the garb of mediocrity and poverty and rise up to take their dignified place in our world.


Ø Teachers of today need personal and professional development to be their best in their career path.

Ø They should collaborate with other teachers around the world for profitable networking.

Ø Teachers have a lot of message for the world; they should go out there and trade their knowledge for money; settling only for the best.

The Teachers Re-Orientation Programme (TROP) I initiated years back is still relevant today. Teachers Network groups, both online and offline should be embraced by every teacher for seamless collaboration and profitable networking.

I feel more for African teachers, who are virtually behind in almost every area. That's why we are coming up with this blog site to team up for mutual benefit.

Please make a useful comment as contribution for African teachers' benefits.
