CTI Online: Christian Teaching Institute









Letter from the Principal

March 2020

Dear parents, students, teachers and CTI community,

At the time of writing these lines, the world is passing through a dangerous pandemic. Businesses, activities, universities and schools have come to a halt. People are at home, doing telework or online education.

In these dire times, bolts of optimism emerge. People are learning to forego a lot, and live simpler lifestyles. Families are getting back together. Individuals are showing care and empathy to others like never before.

During these days of closure, CTI continues its educational mission, albeit in a significantly different manner. Students are undertaking online education, and the teachers are spending a tremendous amount of time preparing online lessons. In most cases, the time and effort invested by the teachers exceeds what is usually given in regular school days. For the teachers are seeking the best platforms, recording audio and videos of themselves, preparing slide presentations, selecting handouts, interacting with the students on online platforms, and evaluating student work. Meanwhile, the students at home are getting accustomed to this new educational lifestyle.

It is also worth noting that IB teachers are still doing their online professional development. Most of the teachers recently received certificates of successful completion. Congratulations!

Infinite thanks go to the CTI teachers for their efforts. Thanks also go to the coordinators who are spending long days supervising the work done. Thanks, as well go the IT people, who are assisting the teachers day-long. Gratitude also goes to the parents for overseeing the work done at home. Finally, thanks to the Lord who has kept us safe thus far. Quoting Psalm 91: 4 “He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. ”

Stay safe and see you soon,

The principal
