Dr Abdul Kalam said

Teaching is a very noble profession that shapes the character, the caliber, and future of an individual. If the people remember me as a good teacher, that will be the biggest honour for me."

Research and common sense both tell us that "Great teachers help create great students". In fact research shows that an inspiring and informed teacher is the most important school-related factor influencing student achievement - both quantifiable (marks) and qualitative (development of a child).

So it is critical to pay close attention to how schools train and support both new and experienced teachers. Ongoing professional development keeps teachers up-to-date on new research on how children learn, emerging technology tools for the classroom, new curriculum resources, and more.

For every teacher who is not learning and growing there are 12 students who are not learning and growing at some level
