It is strange but laudable to see teachers or generally, professionals from the same profession offering help or support to others in the same business. It is also heartwarming to see people in the same profession acknowledge the fault or flaw in a section of their field and endeavor to find a lasting solution to the problem. This is the godly idea that led to the birth of the Teachers Educator’s Network (TEN).
TEN was founded by a group of Ghanaian international educators, led by Letitia Naami Oddoye, who are passionate about teaching and have had the benefit of exposure to diverse educational curricula and standards. Each of these educators has over ten years of experience in teaching and extensive training in internationally accepted standards of teaching pedagogy and
practice. They are all highly experienced, internationally trained and qualified teachers from the Lincoln Community School, in Accra, Ghana. Their collective teaching experiences range from pre-school to secondary school levels. These teachers share a desire to contribute to the pool of knowledge in the teaching profession in Ghana and their ultimate goal is to improve learning among Ghanaian students. TEN’s mission is to provide Ghanaian teachers in local and private schools with training in research-based literacy and instructional pedagogy. Our aim is to improve the standard of teacher instruction in Ghanaian schools and ultimately enhance student achievement scores at all levels.
The Educators’ Network(TEN) continues to promote progressive, research- based teaching methods to advance teaching and learning in Ghana. Through their periodic workshops, they share teaching methods that show how skill development can be buttressed with thoughtful, reflective mental activity that fosters authentic understanding.
