-Ms. Ashwini Gupte

As a prelude to the academic year 2018-2019, the staff of Don Bosco High School, Matunga profited by a workshop on professional development, so as to empower themselves to optimally accompany our youngsters on their journey towards self-actualization.The workshop conducted on June 12, 2018 by Mr. Vincent D’Silva explored pertinent areas including challenges faced by the educator in the dynamic and fast-paced era of technology, key drivers for professional excellence, qualities and skills that go into the making of successful teachers, strategies for fructifying expectations from stakeholders and the time-tested and powerful Don Bosco ‘Preventive System Of Education’. Focus was also laid on empowerment of self as an educator through confidence building exercises, effective communication and active listening skills, conflict resolution techniques and the power of collaboration, leadership and team building to synergize, and time and stress management.
The vibrant, erudite and humorous personality of Mr. D’Silva, in conjunction with the focused a.v. presentation and a quiz to encourage out of the box thinking made for a day of engaging and effective learning, and a promising start to the new academic year.
