Most Inspiring Tamil Teacher Award
IJC's heartiest congratulation to Madam Selvey Manickam for being awarded the Most Inspiring Tamil Teacher in 2017.
As a Mother Tongue's teacher, Madam Selvey Manickam has the opportunity to impact her students' holistic development, through the teaching of the subject, values, customs and traditions. In her own words, teaching the Tamil Language has made teaching a meaningful and rewarding career. In her 25 years in the profession, she has taught primary, secondary and JC students. Every level has posed its own challenges. Students at different learning stages require different teaching and motivational strategies to inspire them to learn. In her opinion, building strong rapport and bonding with students are key to positively influencing students' academic performances and character building.
