TopNaija Stories: Michael Showunmi, Mathematics Teacher



At the age of two, Michael lost his legs to acute flaccid paralysis and was able to move around by crawling with his chest. Though the life story of Michael Showunmi, the son of a pepper-grinder and a physically challenged teacher who believes his dreams are valid, evokes pity, he has learned to make lemonade from the lemons life throws at me.


Michael is a graduate of Chemical Engineering with CGPA of 4.21/5.00. from Ladoke Akintola University of Technology in Ogbomoso, Nigeria. His passion for teaching developed while he was posted to a rural school in Lagos State, Nigeria during the compulsory one-year national service. Ever since then, he has been teaching and impacting the lives of every child he came across. He has taught mathematics, further mathematics, basic science and technology, physics and chemistry. No child has ever failed in any subject he teaches. He is lively, goal-driven and getter. He was awarded a resilience teacher in the lagos state teachers conference and also awarded veteran teacher in the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), amidst others are the Maltina ThatOneTeacher award. His hobby is playing football, reading, and singing.
