- A teacher has been hailed a heroine for seeing beyond her ‘disability’ to empower young children
- The photo of the teacher which went viral on social media has left many people in awe
A hashtag that was started on Twitter, has led to the discovery of a female mathematics teacher, teaching her students by writing with her teeth because apparently, she had no arms.
A photo sighted by YEN.com.gh showed the picture of the teacher, believed to be called Madam Enyonam, teaching math without her arms – because she had none.
It is reported that she is a teacher at R/C Addo-Agyiri School. It cannot be however ascertained if she is still a teacher in the school.
According to the writing on the board, the photo appears to have been taken sometime in November 2017.
A hashtag which was started on Twitter, ‘#GhanaTrueHero’ sought to celebrate Ghanaians who were in one way or another, doing things for the greater good without considering the lengths they had to go to achieve their aim.
The photo, ever since it was posted, has won the hearts of many Ghanaians who were in awe and were amazed at the selflessness of the female teacher.
A few weeks ago, an ICT teacher, Owura Kwadwo Hottish, teaching his students without a computer went viral on social media and his heroism was shared around the world on many international news sites.
The ICT teacher, not too long ago, received the very first donation of a laptop from Leeds University. ICT giant, Microsoft has also promised to ‘kit out’ the ICT teacher to help him teacher ‘better’.
Like Owura Kwadwo Hottish and Madam Enyonam, there are many other Ghanaians in different fields, looking beyond their own shortcomings and working hard to make the lives of others better.
