I am called Oppong William. I come from Nsapor in the Brong Ahafo region of Ghana. I had my Basic Education at the Jinijini Methodist Junior High School and further at the Berekum Senior High School.
I persued a Diploma in Education at the Accra Training of Education. I am pursued a degree in English Education at the Valley View University. I am in a family of Six and the second born of my parents.
I teach at Nsapor L.A Junior High School and own a private school alongside. My hobbies are reading novels, studying and watching football matches. I also like playing football with kids
I started my private school with name “STOP OVER PREPARATORY SCHOOL” in the year 2011 at my own compound. I started my school upon my posting to the community as a teacher. Nsapor is a farming community and education seems to have been given little attention. I started the school with eleven students but the number grew to twenty-four at the end of that academic year.
Currently, I have 180 students that is from the kg to primary 4. I have been able to employ eight teachers and two non – teaching staff. My school is highly patronized mostly due to my terms of paying of school fees which is by installment. Parents are allowed to pay their wards fees on installment which is spread across each academic term.
Although my school is fast growing there are many challenges which needs to be met. Most of my classrooms are in temporal wooden structures. The school has to be closed whenever it rains. I started with two classroom block which is at the roofing level.
I am very grateful to zidisha family with their help I have been able to complete the roofing of the class room. Now am pleading with my dear lender to help buy text books and some sports wear for the school children.
I hope to put it to a good use by buying nails and wood so that the classrooms can be roofed. I have already bought the roofing sheet .A total cost of about 100 dollars is estimated to embark on this mission, I will be able to repay under any terms and conditions given. The school is highly patronized and parents pay their wards fees regularly. Thanks for reading and your contribution is welcomed.
