Not many people get the privilege of hearing how their actions have helped others become better. Usually people save positive feedback like these for birthday celebrations or funeral services, which means one hears good comments about oneself either once a year or never in one’s lifetime.
I am more than grateful to the colleagues who put these words together and am glad I can post it here as a reminder when times are tough that my life does count for something.
Read and watch with me. Enjoy and, if you like, ask folks to do same for you.
Hello Mr. Oluwagbemileke Amoo!
This is Lynn Aromire wanting to say a big thank you for your mentoring and assistance while we worked together at Corona Schools.
I look back at the Trainings for Reach the Bar Examinations and how that helped me ace the exams despite the fact that I didn’t finish due to technical issues with my laptop. Also, all the help you rendered with use of ICT and apps in the class that I now use so well and efficiently. Need I mention our elocution classes amongst others.
I just really wish to express my gratitude towards your awesome seeds which has helped me become a better teacher today.
Thanks for your selflessness and assistance.
I really appreciate you.
Mr Amoo is very well known to me. We have worked together for over five years. He is a multi-talented teacher that does his job with passion.
His appetite for application of technology in teaching and learning is insatiable. He has been on the vanguard of training other teachers on the use of technology. This culminated in Microsoft recognizing our school as Microsoft Show Case School as we recorded many teachers bagging different Microsoft certifications. This made him an invaluable member of our community.
I have no doubt that he would be an asset to any organization he works for.

Mr Amoo is an outstanding and industrious leader.
He has assisted me through technology on several occasions.
I remembered when I was unable to clear comments and corrections made by my supervisor. He was able to guide me step by step all through the process.
Apart from that, he has trained us severally on how to navigate Microsoft tools, on critical thinking skills, especially open-ended question techniques.
in leadership, he takes the lead. He informs us of our duties and responsibilities and makes sure it is fully implemented. He participates too.
Also, I admire his eloquence, intelligence, humility and dedication to work.

Mr. Amoo is an amazing, creative, resourceful and resilient educator.
He is a team player who is not only concerned about the success of his team but also the welfare of it’s members.
Vocal and courageous to air his view and also ready to take responsibility for any action be it personal or collective one.
I have known him as a fantastic teacher with sevaral awards for excellence to his credit. His successes propelled him to the position of an administrator.
I still cherish memories of his selfless act of championing the use of Teams to promote effective teaching and learning when Covid started. Teams was just new to some learning environment. He would research and profer solutions as challenges came. Always ready to sacrifice his time for others in the area of technology and eloqution. Using virtual tools to make videos explaining how to surmount the problem at hand. Was it Teams, Reach the bar examination, eloqution etc you were always there to give a helping hand.
Working with you was fulfilling and rewarding. You are a valuable asset. Thank you so much for being there when we needed you.
Teacher of Art.
Oluwagbemileke Amoo or Mr Leke as I like to call him is an amazing educator, colleague and friend. I have known him for quite a while now but we became very close when he taught my son. He was and still is one of my sounding boards when an idea about teaching a concept pops up in my head or when it comes to teaching a tricky concept like subject verb agreement. He is always there to listen and will always have an interesting side to the idea that will make the idea bigger and better.
Mr Leke is a teacher of teachers, he is always ready to help colleagues with anything that will help them move forward in terms of the use of technology. Sometime in 2013 he decided on his own to send general mails with tips on how to navigate the system when using different applications to colleagues.
He volunteers on his own to train teachers to prepare for exams and in the use of IT as a teaching tool. He organised Microsoft training for teachers to enable them pass their Microsoft Certificate Examinations (MCE) this year.
I can also remember when he organised free lessons for underprivileged children in his neigbourhood. He is that teacher that would read the books his pupils love so as to encourage them to read and also to understand how they think and what interest them.

I got to know Leke since I joined Corona School in September 2018. He is one person I know who loves what he does (teaching). This is seen in his passion for knowledge and personal development in the teaching profession. He is also a person who always seeks to help others become better.
He has helped facilitate several trainings for us teachers to help us have a better understanding of technology in education and also handled teacher tutorials for whole school exams. This without being compelled to do so but with the purpose of helping others achieve more.
He was awarded the Model teacher award and Best Teacher awards respectively. He was also promoted into leadership position for his immense contribution to the school as a teacher.
Leke is wholeheartedly involved in any work or assignment he is given.
He is a great asset as a person, a teacher and a leader.
I am glad I got to work with him.

I have worked with a lot teachers and supervisors but my time with Mr Amoo is an exceptional experience of a lifetime. The period working with him was short but impactful.
He is empathic, kind, hardworking and pushes you to be your best.
He is every parent’s dream for their child in the classroom, and an embodiment of good character worthy of emulation as a colleague in the workplace.
Very thorough and detailed too.
He is a gift to the world.
