A little motivation, oftentimes, is all that is required to propel others towards excellence. And who best to be a motivator than one’s teacher or role model? In a country as Nigeria, where teachers barely have any motivation of their own, one passionate young teacher, Theodorauju Igwemadu, is not only motivated but also knows the power of a little push, something she deploys to encourage her pupils to study.

According to her Facebook bio, Theodorauju is a teacher at GTC Nkpor at PPSSC Anambra State.
A number of posts on her Facebook page also reveal that she is fulfilled being a teacher and feels truly grateful to be working with the kids she teaches at school.
The young lady is in the news because of a new post she made on her Facebook account, talking about how she uses motivation, and rewards to spur her pupils to academic excellence.
Read Theodorauju’s full post below:
“Right from when I was doing my teaching practice. I learnt to reinforce my students with gifts.
Then I would gather fruits in season, especially cocoa pods, yea! Kids loves licking the seeds.
Imagine how they would be clamouring to answer my questions and contribute to the lesson.
I have brought it to my present school.
I produce snacks for the school’s production unit, so I always map out snacks and drinks for my children’s reinforcement.
You need to see even how the least among them is always striving to provide a correct answer.
The gifts are so little, but they always want to have them.
It makes them read more and learn more.
I’m out to producing the next generation of readers, leaders and competitors.
I’m a teacher.
A home economist!
And I love my job.”

Her dedication to her chosen career and the pupils she is entrusted with definitely calls for commendation, considering how unperturbed many Nigerian teachers can be as is obvious from everyday encounter and reports.
