Oluyemisi Adedokun-Oladejo, a Nigerian Lady has joined the list of patriotic citizens to make Nigeria proud by emerging as the winner of the International English Language Teachers Competition.
The lady who teaches English Language in Ogun State, Nigeria, has beaten many other applicants across the globe to win the 2021 TOEFL English Language Practitioners Grant.
The grant competition organized by the global testing body, Educational Testing Service, was designed to recognize exceptional English Language teachers.
Oluyemisi who is a teacher at Itolu Community High School, opposite the Federal Polytechnic Ilaro, Ogun state told Legit.ng that the prize has solidified her conviction that teaching is her calling.
“When I was transferred to Itolu Community (Junior) High School in February 2021 and I stood face to face with the enormity of my task, I was perplexed. I began to seek reinforcement. In April 2021, I took a professional course at Bridge Universe.
“Thereafter, I was signed up for their newsletter. I got to know about this prize in one of the newsletters from Bridge Universe. I submitted an application and attached my resume as required. Weeks later, I got a mail that I was one of the few shortlisted for interview from a pool of applicants across the globe. But I soon got a congratulatory email. I won!
“My school gets resources for Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL). These include a mini-language lab, computers, projectors, microphones, headphones and other accessories.”
