Backed by four decades of professional experience in teaching, Mr. Addo initially earned a Bachelor of Arts in French from the University of Cape Coast in Ghana in 1976. Spending one year in the National Service after graduation, he immediately took on a teaching role in Nigeria. Mr. Addo found great success in his teaching abilities, which led him to serve as head of the department of foreign languages for English, French, German and Spanish. In addition, he returned to Ghana to teach English language arts and French at a prestigious Catholic school. Distinguished for his career success, Mr. Addo has received recognition from the French Children’s Association, letter of recommendation from schools in Nigeria and a Teacher Award in Ghana. He was also granted a professional constellation of $17,000.
Upon spearheading his career in the United States, Mr. Addo has excelled in his role as a special education teacher at the ACE Academy, part of a juvenile detention facility, in Highland Park, Michigan since 2013. He cites that the personal satisfaction he gets from teaching is indescribable, which inspired him to enroll in a program that would help him broaden his knowledge in the field that can continue to expose him to various educational aspects. With this sentiment, he achieved a Master of Arts in education from the University of Michigan-Dearborn in 2010. Notably, Mr. Addo is also an author of three published books. With his fourth book nearing completion, which focuses on the problems and progress in Africa, he hopes to have it published within the next five years. Presently, Mr. Addo remains active with the Dearborn Park Neighborhood Association, Head of Special Education and his local Rotary Club.
