A talented Nigerian teacher identified as Folasade Adegeye, also known as Teacher Sade has narrated how she was able to find her feet after an initial setback.
According to her, she dropped out of school while she was in Junior Secondary School, 1, due to her inability to continue.
However, Teacher Sade’s boyfriend who later became her husband saw some potential in her and decided to send her back to school to complete her education up to the University level.
Years later after going back to school, Sade’s unique method of teaching has stood her out as a champion of education. She teaches in a public school in Lagos.
She has denounced the popular cliche that education is a scam.
She told Punch Newspapers: “I dropped out of school in JSS1. I went to learn tailoring and I became a fashion designer. I had my shop and I was there for some time until I met my boyfriend then now my husband.
I think he was able to see in me what I did not see in myself. He felt there is something in me that shouldn’t just be buried. He took it upon himself to send me back to school.
I had to start from the scratch. And here I’m today.”
