HCMC honors 73 academics educating college students with disabilities | Training
At the meeting
During the exchange, the chairman of the Education Sector Union of Ho Chi Minh City, Nguyen Thi Gai, said that one of the greatest challenges for a teacher this time is to reconcile work and family, between traditional teaching methods and innovative methods, individualization teaching . “Silent Roses” is not just a title but a recognition of shining examples of friendliness, conscience and responsibility for the teaching profession of educators who teach students with special needs.
Despite their difficulties in daily life, teachers of students with special needs have gone to great lengths to overcome their dilemmas in order to continue teaching.
Ms. Gai said that as special education teachers, teachers face a variety of obstacles that require special focus and patience, but with love for children, a teacher will feel they have achieved something if a student becomes a good citizen.
Ms. Pham Thi Kim Loan, a primary and special education expert in the Department of Education and Training in District 10, said at the meeting that each student has special educational needs and skills; Therefore, despite physical, linguistic, and behavioral limitations, they will have their developmental skills when given appropriate support. Schools and educators need to plan the environment, schedule, and daily activities to promote each child’s development and learning.
However, Ms. Kim Loan revealed that there are no specific guidelines for educators and managers in schools for children with special needs, even though they should work hard.
In addition, there was no dedicated life skills program for children with disabilities and career guidance programs; consequently, their chances of integrating into the community and leading the most normal and fulfilling lives possible have been reduced a hundredfold.
Teacher Dinh Lan Phuong, a teacher for children with multiple disabilities at Nguyen Dinh Chieu Special High School, said the relationship between teachers, parents and the school is important in helping students develop their skills.
As a disabled person, Teacher Phuong knows very well the difficulties faced by people with disabilities and the concerns and expectations of parents and family members. With love and patience for children with disabilities, the young teacher taught the students how to hold a spoon, change clothes and write a word.
For the young teacher, happiness is just hearing her students say a word, or they can hug them and call them ma’am.
According to teacher Ta Le Nhat Vy at Nguyen Hue Primary School in District 1, student progress and achievements can be used as evidence of teachers’ efforts. Teachers always do their best with their assigned assignments so that not a single student is left behind.
