Temitope Ray-Odekeye

Chemistry & Biology Facilitator (Secondary)

Temitope Ray-Odekeye Seun is a goal-directed, serious-minded and witty woman who puts her best possible into whatever she does, until there is nothing left to give.
Temi Ray, as she is popularly called, obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Microbiology at Olabisi Onabanjo University, Nigeria. She has been involved in a number of Science research projects at university level which were submitted and considered for publication in one of the well-known African journals of Science and Technology. Her unquenchable thirst for knowledge makes her a regular attendee at a number of science orientated conferences in Nigeria. She is currently working on her post-graduate degree in Science education.
Working in Nigeria as a microbiologist, prior to teaching, she gained a year’s industrial experience in the Drug Quality Control laboratory section of the Lagos State Ministry of Health.
Believing that everyone has the potential to excel, Temi strives as a Science teacher to develop higher order thinking skills in her students. Equipped with those thinking skills, students are able to locate gaps and flaws in scientific theories and provide sound hypotheses to test their ideas experimentally. In order to achieve this, she approaches learning in a variety of ways, adopting a range of methods to share her own knowledge, instil curiosity and engage students in the process. This always makes her classes alive and fun. She believes that, just like energy, knowledge can never be created nor destroyed but can be transferred, transformed and fine-tuned. However, knowledge not shared is knowledge lost!
Temi is married and currently lives in Kwabenya with her husband.
