I wish I could persuade every teacher to be proud of his/her occupation-not conceited or pompous , but proud. People who introduce themselves with the shame remark that they are, “just teachers”, give me despair in my heart. Did you ever hear a lawyer say depreciatingly that he was only a patent attorney? Did you ever hear a physician say “I am just a brain surgeon? ” I beg of you to stop apologizing for being a member of the most important profession in the world. Draw yourself up to your full height; look at anybody squarely in the eye and say, “I AM A TEACHER. ” William Garr Department of Education.

The e-version has been made userfriendly that any teacher can easily use it. The Individual Plan for Professional Development (IPPD) The TSNA results to a teacher individual profile along the seven domains, the strands and the indicators. From analysis and interpretation based on the TPDIndex, the teacher can determine the trainings which are urgently needed.
The individual profile of the teachers may now be considered by the school head in the School Improvement Plan (SIP) and the Annual Improvement Plan (AIP) The collective profile of the teachers may also be utilized in the Division Educational Development Plan. Thus…. The use of TSNA will guide individual teacher and school heads in following the Teacher Capacity Building Roadmap as shown in the next figure. Thank you very much.
