Don't give up

I had this lesson with some girl yesterday and I was thinking it will be a really nice time but on the contrary, it turned out to be the other way round.

She had stopped going to school in JSS2 and I decided to start from JSS1 with her. Mehn when I started it turned out that she can't read and identify anything.

I had to start from the very scratch but I thank God she could pick up gradually and seeing her willingness to learn I pray God helps her.

Me on the other end I'm I even sure I'll be able to cope with this? I've always love teaching so I believe I can make something meaningful.

To everyone of you, make the most out of today and make sure you have a lovely day.

Our educational system is a mess and that is why I'm never surprised to see something like this.

You said JSS2. Right?
You'd be surprised to know that I have been in a class with someone that came for her WAEC lesson but I ended up teaching her Word Formation formation from two letter words and co.

Okay, that sounds awkward... I actually started from the English Alphabet. You can imagine.

This happened in 2019 but in this case it's also hard to blame the educational system. I think both the student, parents and a whole lot of other factors are involved.

My dear
You're right...I was shocked though and discouraged. I just hope I'll be able to deal with it.

You can deal with it... If the person is matured enough to know the importance of being literate, it will make your job easier.

Teaching is a thing of patience though, but remember to also get tough with the student so that it will be professional and goal oriented.
