The Delhi government honored 98 teachers and principals of public and private schools for their contribution to school education.
“We are here exactly one year after the total closure was first imposed in our country. Our education system has been greatly affected by the pandemic, as school closures during the COVID period had no idea of teaching and learning “said the deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said during the award ceremony.
“But our teachers and principals really seized this opportunity and showed unprecedented determination and determination to respond to this situation,” he added.
“They made sure that learning never stopped by engaging their students in innovative ways. Teachers who didn’t know how to use a smartphone were equipped with the knowledge to use it. Teachers did their best to ensure that children all learned the days”. Their efforts are truly commendable, “said the deputy CM.
Sisodia urged teachers to rethink assessment and learning strategies, saying, “We need to develop correct approaches and develop 360-degree assessments for our students’ injustice to our students and teachers.”
“The challenge is to eliminate memorization and that is why we are about to create the Delhi Board of Education,” he added.
Of all the teachers and school principals who were honored, 69 awardees were from Delhi public schools, 18 from private schools and 11 from Delhi City Council schools.
The winners included special education teachers, art and music teachers, librarians, mentor teachers, sports teachers, and vocational teachers.
Additionally, the Delhi government recognized eleven teachers and civil servants for their exemplary commitment to conducting semi-online teaching-learning activities and COVID relief efforts.
Continuing the tradition of previous years, two special awards were given to teachers who have done exemplary work, based on the observations made by Deputy CM Sisodia during his school visits.
