Role of the Teacher
Teachers understand their role as facilitators
They contribute by providing enriched learning opportunities rather than by instruction.
They facilitate self- learning, right from the kindergarten, through age- appropriate modelling of behaviour and encouraging acceptance of guidance.
The Smt K Saraswathi Endowment Oration by Dr Balaji Sampath, Founder, AID India, Ms Farida Lambay, Co – Founder Pratham and Mr Ramji Raghavan, Founder, Agastya have been occasions to share thoughts on core academics, pedagogy and enabling the teacher to be a relevant factor in social change…
A proper educational system requires a well- planned initiative towards the Professional Development of Teachers.
Weekly Professional Development discussions encourage peer review, guidance from Co- ordinators and Mentoring by Professionals
Teachers also attend One /Two -day Sessions conducted by the Center of Excellence, Regional Office of the CBSE.

Feedback is provided and opportunity to invite the guide for another round of Observation and Discussion is available for teachers to develop their skills and preparedness in the classroom.
