Teacher – the Life Changer

Teachers are special. Parents entrust their children to teachers. Teachers are given the responsibility to nurture the young lives. Teachers are life changers. However, with the turn of the century 16 years ago, changes were seen in the millennial generation. Support is needed for teachers to conquer the 21st century and meet the changing and evolving needs.
