A unique system of engaging the parents

A unique system of engaging the parents

A VERY UNIQUE FEATURE OF THE WORLD RENOWNED CITY MONTESSORI SCHOOL BASED IN LUCKNOW IS THE TEACHER GUARDIAN SYSTEM IT FOLLOWS. THE SYSTEM HAS BEEN IMPLEMENTED FROM SOME TWENTY- TWENTY-FIVE YEARS BACK WHEN IT WAS NOT IN ITS PRESENT ORGANISED FORM.

A TEACHER IS A WHOLESOME PERSONALITY WHO IS

THE ONLY PERSON WHO THINGS FOR THE BETTERMENT OF THE CHILD WITHOUT ANY MATERIAL

RETURNS. PERHAPS THAT IS WHY THE INDIANS PLACE THE TEACHER NEXT TO GOD . THE

PATH OF MATERIAL AND SPIRITUAL UPLIFTMENT COMES THROUGH THE TEACHER. A TEACHER

IS THE PANACEA TO ALL THE PROBLEMS EXISTING IN A STUDENTS LIFE.

LOOK AT THE TEACHER FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF A

  1. ROLE MODEL
  2. A FRIEND AND PHILOSOPHER
  3. A GUIDE IN THE ACADEMIC WORLD
  4. A TRUE AND SELFLESS WELL WISHER
  5. A DISCIPLINARIAN
  6. A TRAINER
  7. A PROTECTOR FROM SOCIAL EVILS
  8. A KEY TO A SUCCESSFUL FUTURE

THE PROPERTIES OF A TEACHER ARE COUNTLESS AND YOU

CANNOT APPRECIATE THE VALUE OF THE TEACHER GUARDIAN SYSTEM IN THE CITY MONTESSORI

SCHOOL UNLESS YOU APPRECIATE THE EFFORTS OF THE TEACHER.

AS THE SCHOOL BLOSSEMED INTO ITS PRESENT VASTNESS, STUDENTS FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE AND ALL STRATA OF SOCIETY JOINED ITS CAMPUSES. THE TEACHER FIRST NURTURED THE CHILD IN THE CLASS. ACADEMICALLY AND SPIRITUALLY SUPPORTED THE CHILD AND THEN TO EXTEND AQUAINTENCE AND SEE THE ENVIRONS OF THE CHILD, VISITED HIS HOUSE.

WHAT WAS INITIALLY AN HONOURARY SERVICE IS

TODAY A WELL ORGANISED SCHOOL SYSTEM.

EVERY TEACHER IS ALLOTED A SET NUMBER OF CHILDREN FROM EVERY SECTION RIGHT AT THE BEGINNING OF THE TERM. THAT SET OF CHILDREN ARE THEN UNDER THE TEACHER GUARDIANSHIP OF THAT PARTICULAR TEACHER.

THE TEACHER GUARDIAN KEEPS AN ACADEMIC

RECORD OF THE CHILD ‘S PROGRESS. THIS RECORD HAS TO BE CONVEYED TO THE PARENT

AT THE TIME OF THE VISIT. THE TEACHER GUARDIAN IS HONOURED IF THE CHILD TURNS

MERITORIOUS AND IF THE CHILD IS ERRING AND RUNS INTO TROUBLE THEN THE TEACHER

GUARDIAN LIKE AN IMPARTIAL APOSEL OF GOD COUNCILS THE CHILD, REPRIMANTS THE

CHILD AND GUIDES HIM OUT OF HIS/HER INDISIPLINED ACTIVITIES.

IN THE CURRENT CORONA TIMES, WHEN THE WORLD IS IN LOCKDOWN AND VIRTUAL CLASSES ARE GOING ON, THE TEACHER GUARDIAN VISIT TOO HAS TURNED VIRTUAL. THE TEACHER INFORMS THE PARENT BEFOREHAND OF THE CALLING TIME. A VIDEO CALL IS MADE AND PARENT AND CHILD ASSEMBLE BEFORE THE CAMERA, READY TO FACE THE TEACHER. ACQUAINTANCE IS MADE ON VIDEO. AFTER A SERIES OF FRIENDLY EXCHANGES, TEACHERS COMES TO THE MAIN TASK OF ACADEMIC DISCUSSION. THE TEACHER SHARES THE MARKS OF THE CHILD AND IN A CAUTIOUS MANNER ALERTS THE PARENT IF IMPROVEMENT IS REQUIRED. PARENTS GIVE THEIR VERSION OF THE STORY AND CHILD PUTS UP HIS WORD OF DEFENCE.

SUCH TALKS ARE USUALLY CRISP AND TO THE

POINT AND END WITH 10 TO 12 MINUTES OF CALLING.

SUCH VISITS IN NORMAL TIMES AND TODAY IN CORONA TIMES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN WELCOMED. IT HELPS THE CHILD. IT DRIVES CAUTION IN THE CHILD THAT THE NEWS WILL REACH HOME.
