Brief Profile:

As a trained teacher from the University of Cape Coast, Ghana, I have taught in several schools including Wesley Girls’ High School, Cape Coast. I am a versatile teacher and have gathered much experience in the teaching profession from the Basic through to the University level. I joined the Department of Social Studies Education of PUCG in October 2016, and have since been teaching several courses including Elements of Economics (micro & macro); Economy of Ghana; Principles and Methods of Teaching; Principles and Practice of Curriculum and Instruction; Curriculum Studies in Social Studies; etc. My passion for teaching is anchored in that rare opportunity for continual learning and growth imbued in the challenge of helping students achieve their fullest potential. I believe that in the teaching profession, one thing that is soothingly fulfilling is to see traces of your contribution in the success of every student that went through your hand— it is for this reason that I teach with passion and with the mindset that every student counts.
