From the Principal

It is definitely an honor and a great pleasure for YMSS family to host this significant school based in-service programme on enhancing Classroom teaching resourced by the Dzongkhag Education Officer. I am hopeful that all the participants here are excited and look forward to participate actively and learn something constructive from this programme.  Such Forums are mandatory to enable teachers to sit, share and discuss the rich experiences to enable ourselves to grow professionally and become more competent to handle the changing time, the system and the students.

 PD programme has become an important aspect of capacity building of a teacher and enables him/her to impart quality teaching to the students. In the similar vein, Ethiopia staff (n.d) makes it clear that it is critical for veteran teachers to have ongoing and regular opportunities to learn from each other. Ongoing professional development keeps teachers up-to-date on new research on how children learn.

On behalf of the YMSS family and the teacher participants from Tingtibi LSS, I would like to extend our deepest and sincere appreciation to Mr. Sangay Chophel(DEO) for your invaluable support and coming up with this professional development programme for the teachers of the two schools.  We have our deepest salute to sir for your noble initiative and the time despite the busy schedule. We feel deep attachment to the Dzongkhag Education Office through such benevolent act. With the concern from the higher authority, we would not feel alone and left out in the midst of time when schools and teachers are subjected to public securitization.   

Thank you!  


The programme lasted for almost five hours (9-1:30) with a tea break and working lunch sponsored by Dzongkhag. The Principal, Vice Principal and 16 teachers from Tingtibi LSS and 22 teachers including the Principal and Assistant Principal attended the SBIP.
