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.

Robert Kiyosaki’s Advice to African Teachers: Excerpt from the Book, The Business of the 21st Century

Recently, I started reading one of Robert Kiyosaki’s bestselling books, ‘The Business of the 21st century’. It is a 146-page self motivating eBook that seeks to awaken the sleeping minds of the conventional beings around us who are still living in the 19th century while hoping to make an impact in the 21st century.

I am sure you know about Robert Kiyosaki

. He is the author of the two of the best materials ever handed out to humanity- ‘Rich Dad Poor Dad’ and the ‘Cash flow Quadrant’.

I am still reading the book. But I decided to share some of the salient points with fellow African teachers.

Why African teachers, you might ask.

I choose to challenge African teachers with what I deduced from the book’s content and what I think was Kiyosaki’s intent in putting this thought to paper, because African teachers seem to capture the perfect picture of Kiyosaki’s target audience.


ü  Kiyosaki is actually talking to a set of people who have got talent but know not what to do with that talent. The greater percentage of teachers across the globe captures this description. African teachers nonetheless fall more in this bracket.

ü  Kiyosaki is of course talking to a set of people whose only dream and life goal is to go to school, acquire academic certificate and spend the rest of their lives working for someone who does not recognize nor reward their efforts, outside dishing out to them a monthly ‘take home pay’ that never takes any one home.
    African teachers lack initiative and rather remain in that job complaining than to think of what to do with their precious lives and talent.

John Maxwell reminds us in one of his best selling scripts, that ‘Talent is not enough’.

And I share his views having proven and observed it.

This is my concern- the exact reason why I decided to challenge African teachers, who are not less endowed compared to their colleagues from other parts of the world. Our limitation is only rooted in our mindset that erroneously assures us that tomorrow is bright even when we are not doing anything to better tomorrow’s lot.

I have worked as a teacher for over 15 years, both as a classroom teacher as well as a management staff. My candid opinion based on well documented observation of teachers’ live in Africa can be summarily put in one sentence: 

African teachers are the most ignobly handled set of workers across the globe.

I may be wrong, but my opinion can’t be far from the truth.

In Africa, it seems to be a thing of interest to school managers  and administrators (be it in the public or private schools) to make things too difficult for teachers- overwhelming workload, hostile working environment, undue pressure and threats- the list is endless!

Meanwhile, the pay for this hectic job is nothing to write home about. The average African teacher cannot easily pay the school fees of his/her wards in the same school where he/she teaches. What that simply means is this: Schools charge high fees from students and then pay mere modicums to the labouring teachers as salaries.

Enough of this! I have decided to opt out of this unending chain so that I can stand tall to help others live the fulfilling life their talent deserves.

I have outlined few quotes from the book, The Business of the 21st Century…

“I’ve been saying this for years: There is no longer such a thing as a safe and secure job”

A lot of things are going wrong in our schools here in Africa. School managers usually cross their own boundaries to do things outside the laid down procedures and policies that infringe on the teachers’ rights, but teachers cow under that and keep smiling while suffering. Why? They are afraid of losing their jobs!

Paradoxically, they lose it at last, and in a more ignoble manner!

It’s a big time folly to remain in a wrong job just because you don’t want to lose it. If you do that, you will neither be productive in your work output nor progressive in your career development.

“The only way for you to have a genuinely secure future is for you to take control of that future”

Dear African teacher, your future is not genuinely secured until you take control of it. Unfortunately for many, their future lies solidly with the school owner, who threatens of sack and sanctions at the slightest provocation.

Here in Africa, we are too religious. So when things are not going right with us especially in the work place, instead of thinking of the right thing to do to secure our future, we resort to only praying that the situation will change, instead of we changing our situations by taking meaningful actions.

It’s a New Century

“When I was a kid, my parents taught me the same formula for success that you probably learned: Go to school, study hard, and get good grades so you can get a secure, high-paying job with benefits—and your job will take care of you… But that’s Industrial-Age thinking, and we’re not in the Industrial Age anymore. Your job is not going to take care of you. The government will not take care of you. Nobody’s going to take care of you. It’s a new century, and the rules have changed”

Dear African teacher, the rules have changed! That’s why Neymar Jr, a footballer with probably no university degree certificate is earning around #35 million per day in wages- an amount a lot of Nigerian professors can never earn in their 35 years of service.

In today’s world, it is no more what you know, but what you can do- which must be relevant to the demand of the global society- that puts food on your table. It is no more your credentials but your potentials that promises you a good living.

That is why you (an MEd holder) is being paid a paltry #50,000 monthly salary, while the school cert guy who fixed your school server last time spending only two hours pocketed #150,000. Besides, he was paid even before the service is rendered, but you’re still being owed. And at anytime you remind your boss of your outstanding salary, he reminds you that is an insult and then threatens to sack you.

Get trained in relevant skills and enhance your career portfolio for a fulfilled life and destiny before you get run out of town.

 “Today job security is a joke, and the very idea of lifetime employment with a single company—an ideal so proudly championed by IBM in its heyday—is as anachronistic as a manual typewriter”

If your dream is to keep suffering and smiling just to retain your job and to receive a long service award, I feel sorry for you and your generation. It is not in any way wrong to stay long with an organization, but not when staying that long demeans your value and quest for personal development and career enhancement.

“The corporate myth is over. If you’ve spent years climbing the corporate ladder, have you ever stopped to notice the view? What view, you ask? The rear end of the person in front of you. That’s what you get to look forward to. If that’s the way you want to view the rest of your life, then this book probably isn’t for you. But if you are sick and tired of looking at someone else’s behind, then read on”

Don’t be fooled! How was the last person that occupied your present position treated, even after being initially celebrated? Ignobly? And you think your case would be different because today you’re called the toast of the company!

I am not suggesting you should reject promotions to higher positions. I only advice you be careful so you don’t fall for the trap. How?

African managers only promote you to work not to be rewarded. The moment they notice you have talent that is needed in the organizational progress, they give you a position where you’re completely sapped of time and talent. By the time they are sure you have nothing extra to offer, you become filth to be thrown away. Meanwhile, before you’re ignobly booted out, you might have rejected a lot of handsome offers out there, just because you’re occupying a big position in your present organization.

“When employment and real estate values turn around and credit loosens up again, as they inevitably will, don’t be lulled into that same-old sense of false security that got you and the rest of the world into this mess in the first place”

The global macroeconomic graph is definitely going to tilt towards a downward slope anyway in spite of certain intermittent booms. So it’s going to be a hard time for those who are living by the dictates of such secluded enclave of macroeconomics. The only way to survive this imminent economic tsunami is to build a self controlled economy by becoming an entrepreneur. Simply learn how to do certain things that the 21st century world needs and build your life around it.

If you don’t understand, let me open your eyes. How many of us teachers have been owed salaries at any time for a number of months and the school owner or manager keeps making excuses why he can’t meet up with the obligation of paying for the service rendered because there is no money, only for him/her to share testimony the following week of how ‘God’ had graciously blessed him/her with one hummer jeep and a Dubai property worth millions of dollars. And the sycophants applaud with ‘Praise the Lord’

Imagine the man is already crying wolf when there is no wolf. So what do you think would happen when the real wolf emerges?

If as a teacher, you’re being owed salaries for months in spite of the fact that there is money with your manager, what do you think would happen when the economy start biting hard as it will, with your manager? Is that the time he would pay? You can only be told to either choose a pay cut or ‘do the needful’.

Do you now see the foolishness of thinking that things will improve by staying tight in that job, instead of seeking to improve your own life and take hold of your future?

“Don’t be distracted by the headlines. There is always some idiotic buzz going on that tries to pull your attention away from the serious business of building your life. It’s just noise. Whether it’s terrorism, recession, or the latest election-cycle scandals, it’s got nothing to do with what you need to be doing today to build your future”

Be sure a lot of people will discourage you from carving out your own path. In fact, if you ever let your boss know you’re thinking of launching out, watch out for any of these: either he/she hypocritically paints a horrible picture for you about the risk of doing that so as to frustrate you from being on top or he/she starts to victimize you all in an effort to frustrate you.

But remember, it must be between you and you. Let no man come in between. It’s only God that has that right over you, not your boss.

“The economy is not the issue. The issue is you.
 “Life is tough. The question is, what are you going to do about it? Moaning and groaning won’t secure your future. Neither will blaming Wall Street, the big bankers, corporate America, or the government. If you want a solid future, you need to create it. You can take charge of your future only when you take control of your income source. You need your own business.

This is the best time. When times are bad is when the real entrepreneurs emerge. Entrepreneurs don’t really care if the market’s up or down. They’re creating better products and better processes. So when somebody says, “Oh, there’s less opportunity now,” it’s because they’re losers.

A recession is the best time to start your own business. When the economy slows down, entrepreneurialism heats up like a stoked-up wood stove on a cold winter night.

Q: What do the Microsoft and Disney empires have in common, besides the fact that they are both hugely successful billion-dollar businesses that have become household names?

A: They were both launched during a recession.

Why? Simple: In times of economic uncertainty, people get creative. They break out of their comfort zones and take initiative to help make ends meet. It’s a matter of good, old-fashioned American entrepreneurialism at its best. When the going gets tough, the tough get going.

But now that layoffs are rampant and everyone is worried about what the future holds, millions of people are soberly reevaluating their finances and realizing that if they want to have a secure future they can count on, they’re going to have to come up with a Plan B. People today are hungrier than ever to earn extra money, and because of that, they are more receptive and more inclined to open their minds to new avenues.

Dear African teacher, it is time to act right. Do that fast! I say fast. This is 21st century!
