“A one in his 20s walked into my cabin one day and told me how this school changed his life. He asked if I remember me, but I wasn’t able to place a name to his face, so he had to explain an incident from his third grade and remind me. He had stolen chocolate from his friend. I had asked him to buy the same toffee the next day and give it to his friend and made the share it. The student told me how to this day. He believes that there’s a better way of changing people than yelling at them. While these are moments that we teachers forget quickly, the students carry those lessons with them for life.
Teachers alone can create all the other professions in this world, and that’s why I chose to be one. I’ve been with the Navbarath School ever since it’s inception and has been serving as it’s principal for ten years now. Every child in this school is special to me and close to my heart. And if there’s a possibility that I could go back in time and pick any other profession to me, I would still choose to be a teacher and work in the same school. That’s because we cater to the children of the local slum dwellers and ensure they get the top-notch education that they deserve.
School education is a basic necessity like food and water, and we cannot deny that to someone based on their economic status. The day we can provide free high-quality education to the whole nation, is when we will emerge as a developed nation. At the same time, we should also learn not to judge children by the marks, because each of them has a different talent and fostering them is what will drive them to success. Like the Late President, Dr.Abdul Kalam said, “Some of the brightest minds in the country can be found on the last benches of the classroom,” so it is the teacher’s job to identify those kids and train them towards being successful!”
