Meet Ditta Magar, a teacher/coordinator from Kathmandu, Nepal, participating in the 2017 TIEs program.

Here’s a little about her:

How long have you been teaching?

I’ve been teaching for 9 years- the first 2 years were in kindergarten, then after that I became a coordinator for classes nursery to 2nd

Why do you teach?

I love children. It makes me happy to spend time with them. Also, I am studying child development at the Masters level.

What do you like to do when you’re not teaching?

I love watching dramas, and I am involved in acting. I am also a Sunday School coordinator.

Where have you traveled before? Is travel important to you?

I have traveled to Pokhara in Nepal, and India outside of Nepal. Travel can refresh us and it gives us entertainment.

What are you strengths as a teacher?

I give children a loving and caring environment. This is my first priority for the students. After that, I can teach them, like a friend. I can give them motivation and counseling.

What do you believe is the biggest benefit of the TIEs program?

We can know different countries’ teachers- their culture and their teaching style. We can share our own feelings with them. At first, they are new faces for us, but later, we are like a family.

What do you hope to learn from your partner teacher?

I want to learn to how to make low-cost materials. And I want to know my partner’s teaching style.

If you were an animal, what would you be? Why?

A fish. If I have any trouble in my mind, I love to see aquariums. The fish make me happy. So if I were a fish, I think I could make other people happy.
