Mrs Fausat Adegeye has become a star of sorts for holding online classes despite the COVID-19 pandemic that forced the closure of her school, Ebenezer Primary School 1, Agbado Ijaiye, Lagos and over 9,000 others nationwide.
The Lagos State government runs radio and television programmes on various primary and secondary school subjects on select radio and television stations. However, the English teacher went beyond the call of duty to use personal resources to engage her pupils remotely.
Eight weeks ago, she began teaching her subject on Facebook – taking one class level daily for six days of the week.
Mrs. Adegeye’s efforts came to the notice of the Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board (LASUBEB) and last Thursday and she got a commendation letter from the board. (Text, photo – Nation)
