“Teachers – The Guiding light of Icon”
“What a teacher writes on the black board is imprinted in the minds of the children – forever”
Our teachers induce interest in their subjects by sharing purpose, vision and innovation in pedagogy. They have positive expectations from students and are effective classroom managers. Constantly learning and updating their own knowledge banks, they are well equipped to design innovative lessons for their students. Dissemination of knowledge is achieved through a variety of methods ranging from theatre and role play in education to excursions. The Teacher’s role is to design learning experiences that help students understand concepts and own the knowledge they construct!. Multimedia-linked smart boards, internet-based learning, subject laboratories and cross-curricular approach are common in our classrooms. But the teacher’s human touch transcends and transforms it all.
The teachers of The Icon Public School share a relationship of love and trust with the children in their care. Reward and punishment are woven into the fabric of this relationship, so that when either praise or censure is exercised, the student is conscious that it is fully deserved. Over a period of time, the pupil becomes his/her own monitor and explicit disciplining becomes less and less necessary.
