Lessons Teachers Learned by Debbie Yeong
God is in His Classroom
Debbie has won numerous awards for innovative teaching both at state and national levels. She is besieged by invitations from teachers and school principals to train and encourage students as well as fellow teachers.
In Debbie’s classroom, I have met students who were deeply involved in their own education. Rather than sitting passively, napping through class, they were themselves teachers. They were highly knowledgeable about the subject matter, engaged with each other, and delighted by their own creativity in using the computers and presenting the material…. I have visited classrooms all over the world, in countries both large and small, rich and poor. I have not seen a group of teenagers more eagerly attacking their learning. I would wish for my own children or future grandchildren that they could be taught by a teacher as wonderful as Debbie.
A collection of anecdotal episodes, which provide an interesting and insightful perspective to the pains and gains of teaching within and beyond the classroom. It highlights the critical importance of sharing and giving.… It provides realistic episodes and scenarios of actual classroom experiences to which teachers can closely relate to and associate with. There is an underlying focus on the strength of faith in the Almighty as inner strength to the educationist, to keep on trying and never giving up….. In a nutshell, an exceptional benchmark to educational practitioners, a book worthwhile reading. A must for all teachers!
