Faith Aku Dzakpasu, a teacher at GRETA ‘D’ Shepherd 2 Basic School in the Greater Accra Region, was named the 2023 Ghana Teachers Prize winner in Takoradi.
She won a three-bedroom house, while the second-best teachers, Mohammed Ibrahim of Sefwi Wiawso Senior High Technical School in the Western North Region and Rachel Afriyie of Pabi MA Primary School in the Eastern Region, each won a pickup truck.
World Teachers Day is celebrated on October 5th to recognise and honour teachers for their enormous contributions to nurturing the country’s human resources.
The National Best Teachers Award was established in Ghana in 1994 and was later renamed the Ghana Teachers Prize.
Ms. Dzakpasu expressed gratitude to the Teacher Union, her parents, and teachers for nurturing her and encouraged her colleagues and teachers to innovate new teaching methods to help students reach their full potential.
