What is Teach The Teacher?

Better Teachers, Better Future

Teach the Teacher is an educational philosophy which was developed by Karunia in response to the immense challenges facing the education system in Papua. It is an approach that enables profound and sustainable change because it responds to the basic psychological needs of every human being: autonomy, self-esteem and connectedness. In Papua, Teach the Teacher has proven capable to successfully transform teachers into impactful agents for change. It is an approach that has universal value and can also be applied in other contexts.

Meet our Teachers

Autonomy

Teach the Teacher encourages proactive action. You take initiatives and are aware that you are responsible for your own actions.

Self-esteem

Teach the Teacher makes you proud of your results. Moved by intrinsic motivation you deliver quality and experience that your contribution matters.

Connection

You do Teach the Teacher together. As a teacher it is impossible to be a soloist. You need each other to make your school shine.

Autonomy

We go for it

There are many challenges in education. It is easy to hold the school administration, the government or the parents responsible for these. Teach the Teacher emphasizes the impact of teachers’ own actions.

Their proactive efforts can make a big difference. This insight stimulates them to take initiatives and assume responsibilities.

Self-esteem

We can do it

As a teacher you do not stand high on the social ladder. Your job is demanding, you may experience problems in front of the class and your salary does not reflect the energy you put into your work. With Teach the Teacher, you rediscover why you became a teacher and that your passion is the students.

When you are motivated you will prepare your students well for the future and you can be proud of what you achieve.

Connection

We do it together

Group formation and gossip in school. There is nothing more destructive than insecurity and lack of trust. It makes you feel insecure and afraid to be yourself. This in turn affects your teaching practice.

Teach the Teacher teaches teachers to be committed to others, to be reliable and honest. Making mistakes is allowed, because you learn from it. It creates a warm atmosphere in the group.

Lasting change

The teacher has a lot of influence on the formation of the child. If he is not very motivated for his task then this is noticeable in the classroom. However, if he is an inspired teacher, pupils will develop better, and that, in turn, benefits society. Teachers of integrity and commitment have a lasting positive impact on children and are therefore of great significance for future generations. All because the heart is touched.

Inspiring examples

It works!

The teacher training college of Karunia has now formed a pool of teachers who are committed with heart and soul to better education in Papua. They do not shy away from difficult circumstances in villages, they just go for it. Their students can already read and write in grade 1, something that is special there. They are inspiring examples for others.
