Being a Teacher…

Being a teacher is so challenging and strenuous, I would not have realized it if I was not a part of the Teach For India fellowship program. I have started my journey as a Fellow with 49 beautiful girls studying in Grade 6th of a Government Girls Secondary School located at Kalkaji, New Delhi.

It has been just a week since I started teaching them and I have already learned a lot from the kids, the other fellows and the school family. I am sure many challenges, experiences, learning are coming my way in this 2-year long Leadership journey, and I am ready to embrace it.

The past one week had been fruitful wherein I tried to build relationships with the kids and other stakeholders, help the kids to gain some knowledge and learn skills, let them think creative and express their views. Most importantly, I tried to keep them happy as I think that a kid should always be happy and satisfied when they leave the school.

Here are a few pictures of the class, Story Book Designing Workshop and Mega Parent Teacher Meeting from last week.

The classroom needed a few of these so that students could express, participate, feel free to ask and be disciplined.

The kids are very creative and they love to draw, so I ended up doing a Story Book Designing Workshop with them that they enjoyed a lot. This Workshop let the kids think creative stories, enhance their drawing and writing skills, they learned how teamwork plays an important role while learning with time being a major constraint.

Lastly, the Mega Parent Teacher Meeting was a huge success for our class where the parents of 80 percent kids turned up and was a great opportunity for me to build relationships with them.
