When our teacher trainee proposed some ideas to improve student learning, one local teacher said, “Wait, wait, wait." He thinks our trainee is always in a hurry to do things, but our trainee believes without encouraging others, things won't change.
I heard a student whisper, “Our teacher is coming.” One curiously looked back at the doorway and unexpectedly saw me. It's been about 2 months since we left the village due to the conflict in northern Rakhine State, but now are glad to be back.
We recently taught in two communities in northern and southern Rakhine State, and can now reflect how much we were able to meet the local needs and expectations.
When we talk about the teachers we've had, our teacher trainee said he didn't really like any of his teachers, and Chloe mentioned we were lucky if we found one or two!
In Myanmar schools, there is an integrated triangular symbol that represents the involvement of teachers, parents and students. The intention is that students, parents and teachers all need to equally work together to create a quality education system.
Acting as the hands of the clock, our students figure out how to tell time in English. Plus, they get to move around outside!
We are not just teaching the students, but we are taking their problems and difficulties as ours and trying to be part of their community.
I had previously complained that the local teacher trainee was content to nod in agreement as I postulated theories and ideas to get the cogs working in each student’s brain.
Before I was an NEH teacher trainee, I tried to explain the entire lesson, without making time for students to practice, considering their needs, and managing the classroom.
