Education Director Urges Teachers to Enhance Professional Image

Lawrence Dzah, the Education Director of the Akuapem North Municipality, has advised teachers to avoid making negative remarks about their profession in public. Speaking at the 15th matriculation ceremony of the Presbyterian College of Education, Akropong – Akuapem, Dzah noted that such negative comments put the teaching profession in a bad light and negatively affect teachers.

He urged teachers to desist from such utterances and instead portray a positive image of the profession they have chosen.

The event, themed “Attaining excellence in modern teacher education: The role of the pre-service teacher,” saw the admission of 341 new students, including students with special needs.

Two of the new students were minors and siblings, Mawuli Dieudonne Tasiame, 16, and Michael Blair Tasiame. Mawuli is studying science and information communication and technology (ICT), while Michael is studying Mathematics. The female to male ratio of admitted students was 51:49%.

Dzah emphasized that the teaching profession was ordained by God, and as such, teachers should study hard and come out with success to be able to handle students placed under their care. Rev. Dr Nicholas Apreh Siaw, the Principal of the College, also encouraged students to work hard and focus on their studies to achieve their ultimate goals, stating that the college stood for excellence.

Rev. Ebenezer Acheampong Asiedu, the Chairperson of the Akuapem Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, who was the guest speaker, advised new students to be innovative, adaptive, and creative to manage the students they would be teaching. He also urged them to be morally upright and abreast of technology, as technology has become essential in modern teaching.

The matriculation ceremony was an opportunity for the new students to be reminded of the importance of their chosen profession and the need to portray a positive image of it.

The advice from the Education Director, Principal, and guest speaker highlights the essential qualities of a successful teacher, including hard work, focus, innovation, and a good understanding of technology.

The ceremony also emphasized the importance of students maintaining moral integrity and discipline, as they are in a Presbyterian tertiary institution.
