About the book
I am a Teacher (My trysts with life, truth, system & happiness) India's first Teacher empowerment book in today's knowledge society. Economic growth of a Nation is dependent on the quality of Education system. International Research found out that if two average eight year old students were given different teachers one of them a high performer; the other a low performer their performance diverge by more than 50 percentile points within three years. So, a teacher makes all the difference. But in spite of these realities Teachers are a relatively undeserved community in terms of support, training, resources and products.
As primary agents of change, teachers more than anyone else need to be equipped with best-in-class resources and knowledge to enable better education. Apart from this the education community has also not focused sufficiently on teacher motivation and empowerment. With this background in mind AIETS proudly presents India's first Teacher empowerment book. I am a Teacher is based on the story of Suniana, a school teacher. This book reveals Suniana's experiences, joys and sorrows, her ups and downs in the course of her journey as a teacher. Suniana's success story can be the success story of every teacher provided he/she is equipped with the tools to deal with his/her particular problem. Like Suniana if each of us aspires to be among the best, we will be making our children into not just citizens of India but global citizens ready to take on the world!
