Try to learn something about everything and everything about something.

It is imperative for a teacher to encourage students to become lifelong learners. To achieve this goal, it is important for a teacher to continue to gather knowledge and keep a scope for improvement. It should be our personal focus as committed professionals.

To facilitate this goal, the teachers of Queen’s Valley School attended a series of workshops for development of its teachers on both a personal and professional level.

The first workshop was held on 24th June’14 by, a consultant with The Times of India.The topic of discussion was ‘Social Graces’ wherein our resource person highlighted the importance of appropriate social behaviour among peers and its significance in classroom teaching. The resources person talked about how to provide an environment that is both encouraging and positive for students and how a teacher can work towards making them holistically groomed citizens. The need to avoid trivialities such as office gossip wherein a person is unknowingly subjected to negative or disparaging comments or criticisms was also discussed.

The significance of correcting students for the use of inappropriate language was also stressed upon. It is our duty as educators to instil good values, proper conduct and manners in students in co-ordination with their parents.

The workshop was a success in terms of basic comprehension of a topic as elaborate and detailed as phonetics.
