Faculty

The Quality teaching and strong student-teacher relationship form the foundation of our highly scholastic programme. All the teachers have the special qualities that distinguish a good teacher- patience and understanding. They are dynamic, relaxed and enthusiastic with the ability to create a friendly atmosphere in which the child can express himself and learn. They encourage the development of each child, by providing security and warmth, emphasizing self-discipline more than authority and encouragement rather than punishment.

Our teachers are carefully chosen having aptitude and experience to teach the young children. Never satisfied with the tried and tested, they delight in creating more effective ways to explore and share knowledge thus breathing life into their teaching, thereby, enabling our children to go beyond rote learning. Our teachers are here because they love teaching, they love kids and they love DPS resulting in a dynamic, challenging, interesting and excitement filled atmosphere. All this is possible because of our continuous and comprehensive in-service orientation, education and training programme for teachers through self-motivated school based activities. Lifelong-learning teachers create lifelong-learning students.

DPS Chatra will have a fully trained faculty aided by a large support staff that will include helpers, researchers, house-keepers, trained paramedics, etc. DPS Chatra will have one of the best employee remuneration programs leaving no stone unturned to provide career-enhancement opportunities with workshops, seminars, re-skilling programs, training, and advanced courses. This philosophy has ensured a low attrition rate in all its Schools, creating a happy workforce which takes pride in what it does. The dedicated staff will provide student-focused individual attention making sure that each child keeps up with the peer group. Teaching is often described as a giving of knowledge. In reality, however, teaching is an experience that should encourage the teacher to learn, too. In fact, an already knowledgeable teacher, who is able to learn with his or her students, is a good teacher.

Effective teachers cannot afford to rest or coast for very long because the children have a way of bringing a remarkable new set of challenges into the classroom each day. That what worked with some students last year may fail this year. A teacher who stops adding to her or his repertoire of effective strategies is too much like a knife grown dull for lack of sharpening. Teachers are often faced with the challenge of instructing students at various levels of academic progress. Knowing how to connect with all students regardless of their aptitude level is critical to ensuring that the educational material is effectively disseminated to each student, on each level. Ongoing teacher training proves to be a vital tool in ensuring their success.
