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.”
