A DAY IN LIFE
“I have attended multiple training sessions in the course of my professional career, some as a trainee and many as a teacher. However, nothing matches the work done by ITEI-EDMC. I feel elated because I can see conscious changes in my students.” – Ms. Savita Sharma

As most offices get ready to absorb their workforce, the In-Service Teacher Education Institute does so too! But in doing so, it has gone a step further by creating opportunities for voluntary and strategic partnerships. For instance, a collaboration exists, between the East Delhi Municipal Corporation and the Tech Mahindra Foundation, which has allowed a relationship to flourish between the teachers and the Institute.
From overcoming barriers such as the need for training and its impact to becoming a world-class centre for guiding teachers, helping them learn new methods and techniques in teacher-education, a lot has happened in a span of six years. Not only is the Institute, an organic component in the life of teachers, but it has also been acknowledged as a replicable model in the near future.
Savita Sharma, a teacher, reports, “I have attended multiple training sessions in the course of my professional career, some as a trainee and many as a teacher. However, nothing matches the work done by ITEI-EDMC. I feel elated because I can see conscious changes in my students.”
Meanwhile, a faculty member at the Institute says,“I had taught most students here in the past; when they were my students. Along with the Institute, I complete a journey with them. I can see how they have grown from being students to being teachers themselves.”
The following are stories of teachers and classrooms that have been impacted by this collaboration. The change that is visible is a result of the intensive work done by all the stakeholders, both inside and outside the classrooms. All the effort is invested with the aim of enhancing their classrooms has helped all partners to grow and flourish. The Institute, itself, has become a centre for excellence and a model for other similar ventures in teacher-education.
What is most heartening to see is the evolution of primary school teachers into mentors and facilitators! Read these stories to know them first-hand.
