The teach­ers were fe­lic­i­tated at a cer­e­mony or­gan­ised in Lucknow on Satur­day.

A state se­lec­tion com­mit­tee short­listed teach­ers from all 75 dis­tricts on the ba­sis of pre­sen­ta­tions sub­mit­ted by them. After that the UP Ba­sic ed­u­ca­tion depart­ment in­vited them to make their pre­sen­ta­tions.

Firoz Khan, one of the awardees and as­sis­tant teacher at a pri­mary school in Bu­land­shahr dis­trict, has been us­ing ICT for over a decade now.

Stu­dents have greatly ben­e­fited from the ini­tia­tive. Now, to be ac­knowl­edged for my hard work in this man­ner is very sat­is­fy­ing,” said Yatika.An­other teacher recog­nised for his ef­forts was Mu­dit Kishore Seth of Pri­mary School Arkara Ra­soolpur in Shah­ja­han­pur, where smart classes have been run­ning since 2008. “The depart­ment de­cided to hon­our teach­ers who tried to do some­thing ex­tra to make the teach­ing-learn­ing process joy­ful and give a new di­men­sion to our ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem,” said di­rec­tor ba­sic ed­u­ca­tion Sar­ven­dra Vikram Ba­hadur Singh.

“In fact, some teach­ers are mak­ing ev­ery ef­fort, us­ing highly in­no­va­tive­means, tostrengthen the ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem in ba­sic schools,” he added.
