Saturday, July 9, 2022

Teachers are the pioneers in shaping the lives of the children for they play a significant role in their day-to-day lives. Teachers need to understand the importance of their personality development to shape the students entrusted to their care. A teacher can bring confident expressions even at the time of difficulties in school and motivate students if they have received training with exposure. Therefore, St Aloysius Institute of Education, a leading college of teachers’ education in the city organised a one-day session on ‘Personality Development’ for the first and second-year students here.

Rev. Fr Melwin J. Pinto SJ, Rector, St Aloysius Institutions, Mangalore, was the resource person for the forenoon session. He engaged in an interactive session on ‘Being a Humane Teacher’ and ‘Strategies to handle difficult situations in the classroom.’ During the session, he provided various techniques with examples of handling students. To keep the session lively, he conducted group activities on symbols like a teacher as a flowing river, a mother bird, a gardener, a kite handler and a potter. Fr Melwin Pinto SJ shared his expertise on classroom strategies through real-life problems that cropped up in his teaching career.
