Grad & Non Grad Tr

Postby NdHelpParent » Sun Jul 19, 2009 10:26 pm

Hello ppl...any opinions regarding the difference btw grad & non grad trs? I personally don't mind really if the tr is a non-grad so long as he or she speaks std El and is nurturing. My daugter's P4 tr is a non grad and she was superb ...caring nurturing as compared to her other level trs who are grad.But of coz ...i cant generalise them ...graduate tr i mean. Any different input ?

I believe more in experience rather than qualifications. The older teachers , some of whom, may only have 'O' levels but their standard of spoken English and Grammar are better than the young, fresh graduates. The younger ones may be more creative in their teaching but somehow, I cringe when I listen to them speak.

Usually, schools will put the non-graduates to teach lower primary and the graduates will teach the upper primary.

Personally, I prefer teachers who are mature and experienced with good classroom management and do not show favourtism of any sort - these are attributes more important than their qualifications.

Every year-end , i will pray for teachers who are God-sent for my kids :pray: and so far, they are blessed with really good ones, most of the time.
