For the first time, the idea of the social project “To My Teacher with Love” was voiced in Nur-Sultan at the August conference in the autonomous educational organization “Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools”, and the very first subscriptions to their teachers and fellow veterans were made by Kulyash Shamshidinova, Chairman of the Board. Today, the initiative is supported not only in intellectual schools, but also throughout the country. Hundreds of grateful students decided to make unique gifts to their teachers and native schools, the newspaper Challenge continues in all regions of the country.
Each NIS department chose a favorite teacher on its own principle, from the heart, with love and gratitude! We are very pleased that our professors, the graduate of “Bolashaq” Academy Ulyana Iksanova (premarital: Goltsova) from In-09-1 and Aliya Temirova from In-05-1, were offered candidates. Both students graduated from our university with honors, passed the competition for the position of English language teachers in NIS, then entered and also graduated with honors from Nazarbayev University (Nur-Sultan). Ulyana is currently the Head of English Language Department at NIS. Aliya is also a very respected and beloved teacher at this school. We are very proud of the success of our graduates and we are proud that they do not forget their native university and their mentors.
Bolashaq Academy has a long partnership with Nazarbayev Intellectual School. Several graduates work at this school, where our teachers are invited to meet with students and give lectures. We are confident that this cooperation will continue in the future.
The first teachers, favorite teachers, class teachers, mentors, parents and friends, native schools, remote or incomplete, pilot and partner schools with which we have been cooperating for many years, pedagogical teams that have achieved great professional success – here is the list of those who took part in this Challenge. Subscription continues in all schools and centers of the NIS system, and now our professors will receive copies of “Bilimdi El” from 2020.
