NTTI Ensures Long-Term Impact

Manuka-Exceptional NTTI Teacher
Manuka-Exceptional NTTI Teacher

Januka K.C. is an exceptional NTTI-trained primary school teacher from Mahindra Daya Secondary School. She was born in one of the traditional mud thatched houses in Thumpikar village. At Mahindra Daya School she was recognized by her teachers as being one of the school’s strongest pupils and hired to teach at the school as soon as she graduated, at only sixteen years old. She taught Nepali language there for nineteen years. After attending the NTTI training Januka decided to assume the challenge of teaching Maths because the school’s children were doing especially poorly in that subject on national exams. “I wanted to make games and activities, as I learned from NTTI, to help them better understand mathematical principles” she explains.

The NTTI team observed Januka teach a third grade math class using hands-on activities, group collaboration, and a fun “hot potato” game to practice multiplication tables. The children were actively engaged for the entire lesson and there was an air of industrious excitement. Most importantly, the formative assessment at the end of the lesson proved that the students had mastered the lesson objective.

Januka told the NTTI team: I learned so many things from the NTTI training that I am still using in my class. The instructional sequence “I Do”, “We Do,” and “You Do” is such a helpful way to organize the lesson. I also include activities for all different learners (auditory, visual, and tactile/kinesthetic) in my lessons and I do group work and include an evaluation at the end of every lesson so I can know whether my students understood. If they don’t do well on the evaluation, I know I have to reteach the lesson the next day. All these things I learned from the NTTI program more than two years ago.”

 One of Januka’s students, twelve-year-old Dipesh Nepal told us: “We like to learn with the games and songs Januka Ma’am makes for us because then we really understand.”
