BOOK REVIEW: ‘Dear Educator’ by Nancy Ekpezu


    The book Dear Educator is a heart-to-heart collection of letters, sharing the secrets of high-performing and highly-paid educators in an easy-to-read plain, everyday language.

    Dear Educator shares nuggets and insights that are guaranteed to furnish the educator with what it means to move from being a good teacher to being an outstanding one, and one that every employer will crave to have and reckon with.

    The topics in Dear Educator are carefully selected and are poised to making an educator equipped with what it takes to be the best at his craft. It’s not written in an academic style and does not have to be read page sequentially.

    Dear Educator covers topics which every educator must take into consideration for career excellence, success and fulfilment. It touches on the identity of the teacher as an influencer and emphasises self-acceptance as critical if an educator must impart value.

    The author uses various powerful stories and illustrations and shares even her personal journey to cleverly drive home critical points such as the importance of character of the educator, professional development and the need to be up-to date with current happenings and advancements in the education field, personal grooming and appearance of a teacher, emotional intelligence and so much more!
