Teaching is the profession that teaches all the other professions.
Dreams are often the driving force behind our biggest efforts in life. It doesn’t matter how big or how small your dreams are; what’s important is that you believe in them enough to work hard to achieve them. Only when I got to know this thing is when I really decided to make the difference in the lives of children. This is the reason I teach. It’s what motivates me to work with children to hopefully empower them to create a more successful world for themselves.
I remember when I was in elementary school, I adored my teachers. I always felt special and successful because of the love, support and knowledge that my teachers gave to me. I long to give back to children what I was so lucky to receive from my teachers as a child. My journey to become a teacher started as I joined this prestigious institution, though that was a pandemic year it was the time when teaching as well as learning process was completely toppled beyond imagination. We decided to remain progressive and adopted the hybrid methods of teaching – learning process. We faced many challenges like financial problems, shortage of devices , lack of concentration and discipline in students. But we as a teacher were taught to stay motivated regardless of any situations so with the strong support of our St Thomas family. Whole journey of our school progressed from simple to specialized form by various successive adaptations.
I think over the years, one thing that I learned that has been most valuable to me is how important it is to remain flexible. My favorite times in the classroom are not when I’m doing something or I’ve done before but rather when my students and I are co-creating some experience I’ve never imagined before. With the help of our respected principle ma’am, coordinators, management and my colleagues I allowed myself to experience the new teaching strategies, master additional content areas, and broaden my knowledge base. They taught me about the power we hold to inspire others not just by what we know and what we can do, but how we live our lives. It is through our relationships with students that we make the most difference in their lives.
I realized that teaching is indeed my destiny and vocation. I extend my sincere gratitude towards this institute and members for making me a part of them.
Conclusion – Believe in your infinite potential. Your only limitations are those you set upon yourself.
