Nigerian Wins International English Language Teachers’ Competition, Attracts Huge Development to Her School

A Nigerian lady named Oluyemisi Adedokun-Oladejo won a major international competition set out for English Language teachers all over the world.
The competition is organized by the global testing body, Educational Testing Service, and is meant to recognize exceptional English Language teachers.
The Lady has attracted attention to her school in Ogun state by winning the 2021 edition.

Oluyemisi Adedokun-Oladejo who teaches English Language, defeated many other applicants from across the world to win the coveted prize at the 2021 TOEFL English Language Practitioners Grant.

The TOEFL English Language Practitioners Grant is awarded by Educational Testing Service (ETS).

The young lady who teaches the English Language at Community High School, Ilaro, Ogun State, said the prize has increased the conviction that teaching is her calling.

On how she won the prize, the teacher said she was unaware of the competition but on finding out about the grant last year, she decided to try her luck and to her surprise she received an email later, confirming she won after a stern interview.

“When I was transferred to Itolu Community (Junior) High School in February 2021 and I stood face to face with the enormity of my task, I was perplexed. I began to seek reinforcement. In April 2021, I took a professional course at Bridge Universe.
“Thereafter, I was signed up for their newsletter. I got to know about this prize in one of the newsletters from Bridge Universe. I submitted an application and attached my resume as required. Weeks later, I got a mail that I was one of the few shortlisted for interview from a pool of applicants across the globe. But I soon got a congratulatory email. I won!”

The school where she works will get some goodies as a result of the top prize.
According to her, the organizers of the award will provide teaching aides to Itolu Community (Junior) High School.
She said:
“My school gets resources for Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL). These include a mini-language lab, computers, projectors, microphones, headphones, and other accessories.”
