Cuemath Teacher Convention-Bangalore
The Cuemath Teacher Convention in Bangalore was one of the biggest events that Team Cuemath has witnessed so far. With more than 150 members in attendance, this convention was filled with information, fun and a great number of inspiring stories.
A good number of Cuemath Teachers stepped forward to help out the newly joined teachers since some of the teachers were fresh out of training.
Manan Khurma, Founder and CEO of Cuemath started off the event by briefing the crowd about the growth of Cuemath over the past 2 years and also gave a glimpse of his experiences as a teacher. He also expressed with conviction how a teacher can help transform a child’s life. Manan also addressed the different queries and concerns that a few teachers had and his session ended with a promising smile.
Nikhil Pawar, Head of Curriculum, took the stage to explain how the Cuemath Program has evolved over the past few months and also threw light on the details that they get into while improving the structure or the approach on several topics. All the teachers were exceptionally excited when Nikhil announced about the launch of the puzzle cards for the KG kids.
He ended his session on a positive note saying that math helps children sort real life situations. He also encouraged and appreciated the teachers for the effort they are putting in changing lives of many kids.
Nruthya Madappa who heads Growth at Cuemath, motivated the teachers and ensured them that nothing was impossible. She asked all the teachers to dream big and to realise how much power they hold within them to completely change the way a generation thinks.
Once Nruthya finished her fantastic session, she gave way to some of the Cuemath Teachers to share their experiences in their journey as a teacher. Gauri Purohit, Disha Bhora and Madhuri Gavande were some teachers that spoke about their growth with Cuemath.
At Cuemath, we stress on the importance of precise communication while speaking to parents. In order to give teachers confidence to speak out about the program, Jobin Jose and Rukmani Ramachandran did a role play to show the new teachers what odds they would face when trying to convince parents. They were given tips and tricks on what to say and what not to say to parents. It was a highly informative as well as entertaining session for everyone present.
All the teachers were split into different groups and a group activity was organized for them wherein they interacted with their group and spoke about the obstacles they face. The group would then together address the issue and come up with an apt solution. This helped all of them bond while also overcoming their own fears.
A treasure hunt called The Adventure Game was the highlight of the day. It was designed in such a way that the teachers were to solve puzzles in order to win their next clue. The winners of the game were rewarded generously and they were such a lively bunch.
