Among a sea of heads, there is always a vertical one that rears higher than the rest. The size of the head isn’t a justification for this, certain qualities and attributes merely stand the carrier of such head out among their contemporaries. Idara is one out of millions of teaching professionals.
Ever since I have been teaching, the first time I was monetarily rewarded for my contributions on academic issue was through Mrs Idara. Hmmm!

Hunters appraise hunters
Lawyers commend lawyers
Engineers applaud engineers.
Only a teacher is capable of extolling a fellow teacher, especially on a special day like this.
Are you a dedicated and committed teacher? You must know this pedagogic Shero, Idara, one of our resource persons in the academic world.
Proximity doesn’t compel relationship. Distant friendships are sometimes more beneficial than close ones. Idara is a case study. One does not need her around one; just present the challenges faced with teaching, she is ever willing to provide efficacious succour. Is Idara not worthy of celebration? Haba!

A wonderful teacher that stands out among a battery of teachers.
A dedicated teacher who delights fellow fellowship.
A resourceful teacher whose contributions ever better the lives of others.
An amiable teacher with a remarkable equanimity.
A teacher of teachers.
A confident teacher.
A symbol of academic glory.
It is unbecoming of teachers to ignore a fellow teacher. Let’s celebrate this dedicated, amiable, and resourceful star in our academic world.
Idara, I pray that you will celebrate many years in sound health. Hip! Hip! Hurray!
