Express News Service

KADAPA: By using the simpler teaching methods that the National Council for Educational Research (NCERT) established for the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) syllabus, this 52-year-old teacher has given a huge boost to increasing the strength of students in the government schools in Kadapa district.

Ganugapenta Ramana Reddy of Pittagunta Government Primary School in Kasinayana Mandal was named Best Teacher by the state government because of his special interest in the general development of education and increasing the number of students in the schools and in transforming the schools on a line with private and business schools.

Ramana Reddy’s move to provide quality education to students has had such an impact that student strength, which used to be single-digit, has been translated into three-digits at some of the schools where he had worked. Ramana Reddy wanted to become a teacher after he was inspired by his professors Papaiah, Jayarami Reddy and Shankar Reddy from his graduation days and Professor Raghava Reddy, the current DEO of the Annamayya district.

On October 27, 1998, he joined as a second grade teacher of Kavalakuntla Primary School in Porumamilla Mandal. Ramana Reddy played a pivotal role in the upgrade of the school to a secondary school. He then joined the Pullaveedu Mandal Parishad Upper Primary School and strived to improve the resources of the school, earning him accolades from senior officials.

In 2009, Ramana Reddy joined Uppaluru Mandal Parishad Primary School where student strength increased to 54 from 21. His notable period came after he attended Pittagunta Primary School. In 2017, the primary school had three students and only one teacher, but within a year the number of students rose to 23, 62 in two years, 84 in three years and exceeded the three-digit mark in four years.

As a Result, the school for one teacher was upgraded and the government appointed four teachers.

This teacher always believed in providing quality education and having a strong foundation from primary education itself for improving students’ skills. To achieve this goal, Ramana Reddy adopted the CBSE methods and used Chand Publication CBSE books for math and English subjects.

He also uses the International Council School Education (ICSE) Oxford methods and teaches them to grade 2 students. After this, many parents, who sent their wards to private schools, transferred their children to Pittagunta Primary School.

With the help of donors, Ramana Reddy Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya, Sainik School books, has purchased a TV, projector, printer, laptop and sound system worth Rs 2 lakh for the school. Ramana Reddy received the District Best Teacher Award from Collector V Sasibushan Kumar in 2016. He also received the State Best Teacher Award from Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on September 5, 2022.
