It is rightly said that Teaching is considered as the noblest of all professions. I believe that a sound Education paves way for a greater and better future if we as teachers take up the responsibility earnestly in carving a child’s life. With the technology ruling the world, we provide our children the awareness on cybersecurity and to use technology wisely.

With strong ideals in the field of teaching, 22 years has given me great opportunities to look at education in a different dimension. The glow on my students’ face when they see me is my strength. I am fortunate to be the driving force for my students to achieve their goals. To be a good teacher one needs to understand the needs of their students and to do so one has to juggle roles. For them my roles keep changing as the situation demands, sometimes a friend, sometimes a tutor and sometimes a philosopher and many a times a mother.

Academically, many of my students have scored centum for the love and understanding of the subject and I take immense pride in such success stories. A teacher’s victory is when the students develop love for the subject and is motivated to perform well. As an American Physician quoted “Sport is an essential element of education”, sports and academics should go hand in hand. My forte in both is a standing example.

At ABC, apart from academics and sports, learning happens through assemblies, individual and group sessions, projects, dance, music, karate, field trips, workshops, awareness programmes etc. which helps broaden their horizons. To be the catalyst that ignites interest in the young minds to learn willingly and progress is the best thing that a teacher can do. We enhance ourselves to suit the situation and the changing dynamics of the education system to provide our children the thirst of learning.

Coimbatore, the place for education, has groomed mine with a state rank in my 12th. Patience is a virtue and I symbolize that, as this quality for a teacher is most important. This has helped me in bringing the best out of my students and in acclimatizing with the people around me. I believe that “Everything I have in my life is GOD’s gift”

Success is the result of daily disciplines compounded over time. We as educators need to have an unwritten yet morally bound understanding between the parent and teacher. After the Pandemic, the need of the hour is not mere teaching but also developing students both emotionally and morally. “The most important human endeavour is the striving for morality in our thought, word and action. Our inner balance and even our very existence depend on it. Only morality in our actions can give beauty and dignity to our life”. In my 12 years of teaching experience, I could feel a strong bonding with my students and colleagues, thus paving way to self-realization.

Education is not the filling of a pot but the lighting of fire. All of us are in a situation to understand that education is simply the soul of a society as it passes from one generation to another. Small things consistently done produce great results. The pressing priority of future generation is to realize the importance of time in their life. It’s the right time for them to understand that time and effort can get anything they want in this world. But nothing in the world can get them more time.

In the field of teaching, we mainly believe that “Alone we can do little, together we can do much.” To effectively change children’s mindset, it may not be sufficient to increase children’s social competence without altering their peer and family environments. Today’s children must be taught forgiveness and empathy and must learn to be accepting individual differences.

“Where the mind is without fear and head is held high .... into that freedom of heaven, let my country awake.” These are the famous words of Rabindranath Tagore, and I believe that this awakening is possible only with education. Teaching is the greatest act of optimism. As a qualified and passionate early childhood educationist, the field provided me with all the right arena to grow and nurture my skills. The values we would love to instil in our children takes roots from our culture and the immense satisfaction and pleasure it gives to see the seed grow has always been the greatest takeaways in this profession. It was not long before I understood that lessons and memories fade with time, and experience is what shapes a child. Hence the decision was taken that inclusive teaching would be the path that I wanted to define my career with.

The early start of my career gave me the early – bird advantage to take up the Chinese proverb seriously, which went on to say that, “If you are planning for a year, sow rice; if you are planning for a decade, plant trees; if you are planning for a lifetime educate people.” The carving and chipping away to create a masterpiece take years of dedication. With every milestone reached, sights are set beyond the horizon. As a facilitator I have always been able to blend myself to the changes and challenges of various teaching techniques which has always kept the learning in me active. The collage of memories in my career goes on to prove over and over again that I couldn't have shined elsewhere the way I shine here with fulfilment.  The drive towards the passion has never deterred with age or time. Maybe teaching has become my genetic make-up as I am the 3rd generation teacher.
