Guyana: A picture of a teacher is going viral on social media in which she is going to conduct the mock exam of a student with a foot injury in the flood situation on Guyana island. The lady is a grade six teacher in Region Eight (Potaro-Siparuni) of Guyana.

It is rightly said that ‘Teaching is a work of Heart’. This picture clearly depicts the dedication and devotion of a teacher towards his profession and the students.

In such harsh weather and flooding situation in the region, this teacher is more worried for her students’ future rather than worrying about herself and risking her life. We can never repay our teachers for the love, dedication and devotion they showed to us and for the education they gave us.

Teachers affect eternity; no one can tell where the influence stops. This teacher has become an inspiration for everyone, particularly to the youth, for the allegiance she had shown towards her work and would motivate the youth to keep doing hard work in order to achieve their dreams.

This picture in itself is a clear definition of commitment and devotedness and clearly represents that a good teacher can inspire, hope, ignite the imagination and instil a love of learning.

This picture was shared by Guyana daily news on which various citizens have commented and have asked the Education Minister of Guyana to increase the salaries of the teachers for the hard work they show.

One of the residents stated, “This is one of the many genuinely committed teachers that are not seen in action, especially in the hinterland areas where mostly not seen nor heard.”

The residents have applauded the teacher for her hard work and dedication in such harsh weather conditions and flooding situations.

The island is currently facing severe flooding conditions that have destroyed the lives and homes of trees in the regions. The government has assured its assistance in providing flood relief to the citizens and restoring the structure.
