Touching professional stories by NHG educators
The 2021 - 2022 school year is a big challenge not only for students and parents but also for teachers as they endured a lengthy period of online learning and teaching. Teachers continually innovated lessons in order to make the teaching more effective, thus students are not bored and they can update their knowledge without interruption.
Due to the impact of the epidemic, students can not go to school to enjoy the exciting learning environment, and teachers are unable to experience their professional life. There are no more field tours, courses for teaching quality improvement every weekend. Instead, teachers have changed instantly to adapt to distance teaching and learning activities. “The beauty of the inspirers” offers competitors many opportunities to share and pour their hearts out to others about careers, and memorable moments when looking back on their journey of serving in education.

The desirable school is one in which every staff is a teacher.”
