A fruitful introspection was conducted for the teachers of our Lady of Desterro High School by Rev. Fr. Kenneth Teles on the 6th of June 2014. The theme was "Beauty of a teacher". It was an enriching and inspiring experience for every teacher to revive the teaching vocation. Teachers expressed their views on seminar and said that it was well planned and organized systematically. He dealt with all the areas where teachers could be more effective in teaching and dealing with students. 25 teachers participate in the seminar.
He said that if the teacher aims to be a role model for her students, she would be remembered by her students forever. A teacher should prepare and present her subject matter effectively. To gain academic achievement, a teacher should upgrade herself, he further said. He touched upon the topic of the safety and security of the student. In terms of discipline he said that the future of tomorrow's generation is in our hands. Discipline must be observed by all, whether at home, in school, on duty, in the office or in the army. Hence we need to inculcate discipline right now amongst the student. There are "No children with ‘a problem' " but mostly a ‘parent with a problem'. Every child is a special gift of God. A child has been brought into this world through the love of the parents and the service we give to them is service to God. He clearly and elaborately explained time management. He induced in us very skillfully how to make the best use of time and to choose carefully what to do with the time at our disposal. Latter he focused on guidelines for good classroom management practice. All the above points were discussed with the examples that made the topic very interesting.
To sum up, the seminar conducted by Fr. Kenneth has really rejuvenated and revitalized us, as teachers. We were blessed with this workshop, right at the beginning of this new academic year 2014-15.
