Session and Presentation on “My School”
“Every child has a different learning style and pace. Each child is unique, not only capable of learning but also capable of succeeding.” —– Robert John Meehan
The whole world will proclaim and confess the endless potential of a child towards development and learning if guided and led by a positive force that is – A Teacher. To foster the same school of thought, the Headmistress of Delhi Public School Aligarh, Junior Wing Ms. Bhavana Bhardwaj prepared an interesting session for the teachers with a very inspiring presentation on 30th June 2017. All the teachers attending the session were positively motivated to outperform their own performance to nurture growth and learning in the tender minds of the children.
The presentation turned out to promote determination amongst the teacher as it was presented from the point of view of a child and the aspects in which a child expects the teacher to understand him/her, provide knowledge as well as cater to his/her physical and emotional needs.
Overall, those attending the session felt a new zeal of energy to do better than they are already doing and make a change in the children’s life.
