Teaching by mentoring

February 17, 2020 09:02 am

As I was walking to college, I felt I could help students improve English by mentoring them. By utilizing my break time, I could contribute at least a little, I thought. I decided I would take only one student as my mentee. The mentor and mentee would work extra time at their will. If there would be more than one interested students, I would hold a lottery to select the participant. So I announced this in the class. Three students raised hands. I had to hold a lottery.

I was on my mission to do an action research. I entered a school with a great enthusiasm that I would find out what they needed. After talking to the principal of the school where adult students of varying ages were studying, a deal was struck. For a week I would teach in grade 7, 8, 9 and 10 and from the following week next, I would be teaching only in grade 10. It sounded fantastic to me. What a privilege! It had been a long time since I had taught in these grades.

Why teachers are important

June 22, 2019 01:05 am

A teacher’s importance is very well represented by the above doha.  If both God and teacher were standing together, who would you respect first? It asks. Giving due respect to the teacher Kabir says, ‘I would respect the teacher first, who would then show me the way to reach God’. It is a very simple thought, but a very heavy one at that. You might be thinking ‘who are you to tell us about a teacher?’  I agree with you.  It is beyond me to explain the complexities of a guru/ teacher, still this week I felt like writing about the importance of being a teacher.  Now that I have decided to write, I better tell you why teachers are important in our life.
