02 July. Nothing like having some eager learners. And then you don’t feel tired. That is the beauty of being a teachers.
Teaching in India is not the most noble professions; some make it profitable, but certainly not dignified. Some give an aura of dignity and respect; but not much live on!
Dealing and working with students today needs much patience. Especially students at the higher levels – at a time students are born with mobiles in their hands and internet in their system, teaching has become a huge challenge.
When teaching becomes such a challenge, from where should a teacher find that energy, that dynamo to charge one’s batteries?
In her/his students themselves! When you find some willing learners, students eager to learn and take the trouble, that automatically replenishes the teacher. Seeing a student’s progress becomes the reward that teacher rejoices in !
