Thirty one teachers of St. Anthony's, Versova, spent an entire morning focusing on their attitudes and assumptions as teachers.
Animated by the AVEC team, comprising of Fr. Glenford Lowe SDB and Mr. Rochwyn Fernandes, the teachers took time to look at themselves more honestly and to appreciate their calling as educators of the young. After a brief introduction and a ten minute quiet time in meditation, the teachers began to see their profession as a special calling. Fr. Glenn helped them to 'Discovering their true priorities in life' and their assumptions and attitudes as a teacher.
After a quick snack, the teachers were back to look at their level of COMMITMENT to their Management, Profession, Students and Team. A short explanations on the Psychological environment that is necessary for deeper commitment was also stressed upon.
Through an interactive session the teachers were made aware of the need to create space for the students in their lives. At the end of the day, many a teacher felt renewed and took responsibility for creating a better educative environment in the school.Thanks to Fr. Francis Mascarenhas, the manager of the school for making the necessary arrangements for this Teachers' Orientation Program
