It is important to understand that teaching is an evolving skill because a good teacher like a good student keeps on learning within the framework of information. Teaching and learning go hand in hand & teaching is truly lifelong which makes it important for schools to invest immensely in professional development of staff.

Professional Development is the need of the hour and continuous teacher training/enhancement is necessary for teachers to equip themselves & cater seamlessly to the 21st century learner.

It is a known fact those students who have well informed teachers tend to perform far better than their peers.  Therefore, it is very important that the school management /leadership team pay attention to professional development of staff.

Training of staff must centre on subject-specific training and generic training that lead to the holistic development of all those concerned. Teacher training is important for both experienced and those teachers who are novice to the teaching profession. Teachers must get a hang of innovative pedagogy, interactive assessment techniques and use of differentiation in the classroom to enliven the teaching-learning process.  It’s important that teachers be aware of the different kind of learners under their care and ways of dealing with them-that’s where good teacher training comes to play.

Good teacher training leads to positive learning environments and in turn this leads to happy children who are more than willing to come to school
Mentoring and coaching too, form a part of teacher training which helps teachers learn from best practices and analyze and reflect on their teaching.

Thus, ongoing Professional Development is critical part of the teaching-learning process. Good teacher training puts emphasis on updating teachers with latest research in the education field.

It’s important that teachers know how children learn, it’s important that teachers know up-and-coming technology tools for enhancing the classroom experience.  Teachers must learn to collaborate, innovate and reflect and that’s where professional development comes to play.

Learn, unlearn & relearn is the only pathway to be a successful & outstanding teacher. Therefore, why questions our though processes and say Yes to professional development- that’s how important it is...

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You will be inclined towards deep introspection. You will realise that it is important to understand your inner self. However, Ganesha says spontaneity is equally vital, and playing with children is a very good way to be spontaneous. Today, you should refrain from taking major decisions of any kind without consulting the right people.
