Zaw Win Htet

Volunteer Teacher and Coordinator

I am Zaw Win Htet from Chaung Oo, Sagaing Region. I am a volunteer teacher and coordinator in Nat Taing Monastic Middle School in my Township. I led my school committee to have a new library, a permanent playground and a new school building. I am now leading the committee and teachers to open a library-based new teaching department. In this department, I am trying to provide the teachers with sufficient skills to teach students to be creative and critical in thinking. I believe this department will not only promote the students’ passion in science and mathematics but will also help with their school lessons. In STEM, students can learn to work more effectively, about teamwork and problem-solving skills. I am passionate about promoting STEM education in my school and other monastic schools around Myanmar, cooperating with Monastic Education Development Group (MEDG).
