In School Teachers
Dear Friends and Partners,
The year has come to an end and in the words of one of our teachers, "It's been a good year!" I trust you would agree. Teachers started with the main goal of doing and becoming better that they had been in 2017.
From the teachers' perspective the following were highlights of their work in the classrooms.
The discipline level of the school improved to 75% from 60% last year. This is due to better engagement with the students and increased involvement at the school, which can be attributed to teacher trainings completed in April 2018 and July 2018.
Throughout the year staff morale increased and teamwork grew. Demotivation as a result of delayed salaries was at the lowest as staff were paid on time.
There were a few lows. Teaching resources were always not sufficient, especially reference books such as dictionaries, atlases, and maps. Teachers also had to deal with negative feedback from colleagues within the school zone who looked down upon the vision and mission of the school.
Thank you for making the year a godd one!
in 2019, the main focus of teacher development will be around the following areas: -
1. Rich Teaching for Poor Students (Engaging All Students)
2. Incorporating technlogy in teaching
3. Using Makerspaces to teach
4. Improve on Timely Remuneration for our teaching staff
5. Have Better Teacher Support in and out of class
Let's join hands together again in 2019 to make it a better year, together.
On behalf of the teachers, Board and children- Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year
