Those who know do. Those that understand, teach.”

Teaching is the only job that fascinates me. I remember how I used to admire my teachers and always preferred playing a teacher in my pastimes. Becoming a teacher is a dream coming true!

In learning, you will teach, and in teaching, you will learn.” Teaching also gives me the scope to research, learn and grow. Being a teacher helps me to explore various subjects and methodologies. I really enjoy formulating various activities in the lessons and being flexible whenever required. This makes a lesson less monotonous for both the teacher and the students.

Teachers help to bring about a change in the world. They help foster ‘joie de vivre’ in the students. Additionally, it can be challenging. We, teachers have to make sure that the process is neither slow nor fast. We educate students about the ‘what-why-how’ of learning.
