Muscat: Sen K. Jose, an educator at ABA Oman International School, has been awarded the University of Chicago Outstanding Educator Award 2020.
An Outstanding Educator shapes young minds in meaningful ways—thoughtfully approaching instruction, sharing an infectious love for learning, and caring for students both inside and outside the classroom.
An Indian Mathematics teacher who has taught for over 29 years, Sen received both his Bachelor’s and Masters in Mathematics.
He spent a year gaining teaching experience in India before coming to Oman to teach at the Indian School Muscat.
He taught the CBSE curriculum at the school for 21 years. While there, he became the first recipient of the Best Teacher Award from the Indian Embassy, chosen amongst teachers from twenty different Indian schools in the Sultanate of Oman.
Sen has been teaching International Baccalaureate Diploma Mathematics in the High School at ABA since 2012.
He enjoys a good rapport with both students and parents because of his intrinsic passion for teaching and Mathematics.
Sen is known for going out of his way to support students in their learning and helping them achieve their future goals and aspirations.
He is also known for promoting peace by supporting Students Against Prejudice (a High School student club).
“Mr. Sen is highly respected amongst his colleagues, students and the parent community; he is a gentle, cheerful and inspirational individual,” stated High School Principal Simon Walker.
Each year, newly admitted UChicago students have the opportunity to reflect on their time in school and nominate an educator who played a significant role in their education, made a positive impact in their lives, and whose influence has brought them to where they are today.
All award winners receive a commemorative award, certificate, and letter that includes details from the student they were nominated by.
