I am committed to life long learning and always eager to share what works with others especially in teaching, learning and enterprise development. Helping schools and teachers over the years to make that necessary shift that puts you in the blessed zone of happy, outstanding teachers and Schools.
I have worked with parents over the years to grow in understanding and empathy relating with their
children and raising assertive yet humble children who are proud of all their heritage yet not arrogant or rude.
Over the years Akin has worked with major corporate organizations, some of whom have become partners
Experience the needed paradigm shift that will make you
OUTSTANDING as a TEACHER or PARENT
"Good evening sir, sure your day was splendid? I have consciously started with my children at home, and I want to agree with you that it's workable"
Thank you for sharing your wealth of knowledge and experience with us. We will definitely intentionally work on it. We will also contact you whenever we meet any challenge as we embark on the Supportive Discipline strategies. God bless you greatly sir!"
Our teachers have been using the strategies and great improvement recorded. They finally got it that no other disciplinary method will be tolerated in the school. Besides the children are happy and more cooperative. Teachers also love the responsive classes better. The confidence of the children to express themselves without fear is also amazing. We all love it .
For me, since we had the training on the 21st century teacher, I have become more intentional with providing avenues for my pupils to learn the skills we discussed about
The training has helped me a lot because it's barely a year i crossed over to nursery and primary. Have always been a higher secondary teacher. The key thing I learnt is how to manage emotions and also measures to take in any situations
I have learnt quiet a lot during this mentorship masterclass such as 21st century teaching requirements, differentiation, blended learning, core of differentiation as a great teaching approach and much more.
This last one month truly has added value to my person. I have learned that to be a great teacher and to stand out, I need to show extreme care for the ones I am teaching. Teaching goes beyond learning in the classroom, it's more of impacting the young minds, caring for them, making them see the positive sides of learning even when learning seems rigorous, making it enjoyable as much as one can. I have also learnt to manage my moods as much as I can, so as to manage others. I have learnt that great teachers makes their pupils feel comfortable around them. Any sign of fear or panic means I need to work more on myself, relax and enjoy the art of teaching. I have also learnt that a great teacher is one with great vision on impacting lives. This makes a difference in the lives of these young ones like in the case of Jay-Z. I have also learnt to give more attention and care to the struggling pupils in the class because they need more love and show of care. One has to go extra mile in seeing that these ones stand tall as well. Sir, another important thing I learnt in the course of this class is the power of foresight. Seeing the greatness that lies ahead of a troublesome pupil and helping in our own little way to discover this greatness makes a teacher an Achiever. One thing you make me do most mornings now is how I am going to intentionally make the class fun for the pupils. The few days I did these, I had great relief. I shouted less and I got more results. Thinking each day of how to make my class as safe as possible for my lovelies was quite challenging because I am the type that wants work done within stipulated time but making the the fun and safe was making me loose so much time but I devised another means of working withing stipulated time. I am growing, I am sure of it. Another thing you called my thinking faculty to is seeing positivity in every troublesome child as in the case of Bridget Bema. I had to find out more about this child and realise truly that she is a Super star in the making. She said in an interview that she will like to be a pilot and I saw that truly this girl needs genuine love, someone to understudy her, some to love her and care for her as much as possible and to engage her mind on positive adventure rather than the ones she is doing now. She needs a mentor who will help in making her fame shine in the right direction. I also know how to consciously make extra efforts in finding out the reason behind a child's misbehaviour before any form of punishment. These child are also human and so they can react to things around them Sir, I have truly and really learnt alot. Thank you sir.
