THE PRINCIPAL of the Komenda College of Education, Madam Gladys Annan-Noonoo, has emphatically stated that the teaching profession requires a lot of commitment, discipline and a high sense of purpose.
In view of that, she had called on teachers to exhibit maximum dedication and conscientious hearts to uplift the image of the profession in the society, during a speech she delivered at the sixth congregation of Komenda College of Education at Komenda in the Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abram (KEEA) Municipality of the Central Region over the weekend.
She noted that a hallmark of a good teacher is the ability to blend his or her professional knowledge and skills with the personal attributes in order to harness the innate potentials of the pupils for their overall development.
‘Your duty as a teacher is to shape and mould the children who are put under your care physically, intellectually, socially, morally, emotionally and spiritually and this can be achieved through humility and selfless disposition,’ she said
Madam Noonoo continued, ‘You should approach your work with zeal and unquestionable character since that is the only way you can find teaching very pleasant and rewarding profession.’
The Principal of the college indicated that the country needs teachers who are adaptable and responsive to the changing socio-economic and technological developments of Ghana, adding they should combine professionalism with societal ethics in the discharge of their duties.
She hinted that the college had also undertaken a number of infrastructural projects at the school with its Internally Generated Fund (IGF) ‘since the government alone cannot improve on the educational sector.’
The Principal expressed concern about the way work on the new administration block which is about 75 percent had come to a halt for over a year now due to lack of funds.
In all, 261 students graduated from the school in the 2014 academic year.
