I always knew that teaching was going to be my life for it was something that I loved doing. I stepped into this profession 17 years back, and my journey, over these years has been of passion, commitment, wonder dedication and a deep contentment. In my many years as a principal. I have learnt to go with the flow, I have learnt that to reach the minds of children I have to be interested in the things they like and to view things from their perspective, and being passionate about my subject is not enough. I have to show the children that I genuinely care about them.
With my experience, I have realized how important it is to teach them that there is a world beyond marks and career. It is vital to teach them courtesy, discipline, kindness and compassion.
The journey seemed difficult and every hill seemed higher to climb. I suppose the thing that pulled me through was thought of the reward in shape of smart, confident youngsters.
There is a inherent nobility in this profession, I can make a difference in someone's life by recognizing talent, encouraging the introverted child to step into the sunshine, lending a sympathetic ear, and mostof all by loving them.
