One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our hearts. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.- Carl Jung.
Our Teachers are equipped not just with academic competency but also with the skills that enable them to create learning environments that are inquiry-based, collaborative, technology integrated and goal-driven. Empathy and acceptance are the hallmark of a DPSG faculty .
Every faculty member engages in research and discussions in PLCs- Professional Learning Communities twice a month and are empowered to take initiatives, shoulder additional responsibilities and develop the leader within. Besides these, they are engaged in intense trainings that are planned , conducted and attended by them to ensure the relevance of professional development.
Our team (comprises of 110 faculty members) embodies 21st century skills and are lifelong learners in the quest of the best educational pedagogies and practices to create student(nearly 1645) lead classrooms where learning is a two way process and interconnectedness of knowledge is the goal.
Professional Learning Community
All teachers of DPSGS schools across the country are a part of a PLC, which are further divided subject wise. This is a platform for teachers to explore their present understanding, share their thoughts, seek peer advice and work on their personal effectiveness as a facilitator and mentor. The shared knowledge of the group transcends into an enriched personal knowledge .
The members meet twice a month on a digital platform to share their expertise towards creating an enriched curriculum through research on pedagogy and practices. The group works to create shared resource bank and assessments. As teachers, each member is expected to research in a focussed manner on areas that have a bearing on their students and range from positive engagement in classroom to inquiry based learning to assessments. Each session is carefully designed with pre-shared agenda and recorded minutes that are accessible to all.

Training & Development
In the rapidly evolving world, technology , ideas and innovation are bringing about paradigm shifts which are evident in the thinking and actions of our students. To walk in step with the students, our teachers need to be trained likewise.At DPSG, we recognize that reskilling is a way of life and hence training is an integral part of the lives of our faculty members. Every year, a two week period is set aside for trainings aimed at scaffolding academic, skills, competencies, technology, counselling, behaviour management, team building, collaboration and communication. The trainers identify the imminent needs and create tailor made sessions to address group needs and empower our faculty to fulfill their roles and responsibilities ably. Teachers are encouraged to set both professional and personal goals during these sessions and track themselves through reflection , feedback and dialogue. There is a great amount of emphasis on teachers’ engagement with their personal growth as an educator who is multifaceted, energetic, passionate and possesses 21st century skills.
