Anand Ghar at school

I teach at Primary Girls’ Ashram Shala in Mandla district. All the students are Baiga tribals. During Covid pandemic, when the school was closed, I went to their houses carrying slate and chalk and taught them there. Also, I prepared class four and five students for entrance examinations to special schools like Navodaya Vidyalayas and ensured that they do not drop out of school after class five. I will use the Rs 25,000 I have received as an award to set up Anand Ghar at my school.

Prepared YouTube videos

During the pandemic period, I prepared YouTube videos on science and mathematics and prepared digital textbooks so that the students don’t get cut-off from learning. That way, I gained access to about 7,000 students. I also prepared a question bank for them.

Proper training

I believe that school teaching can be improved only if teachers receive proper training. Keeping this objective in view, I have prepared and launched innovative projects for BEd and DEd trainees. One of my projects was selected by NCERT for national award

Learning material

I converted the whole building of my school into Teaching Learning Material. I painted numerals from one to 30, the number of days in a week, the number of months in a year and so on so that the children, even if they happen to pass by the building, can learn things. I have also painted pictures of aircraft, Parliament buildings and places children have never seen but they need to know.

Coached well

I am a physics teacher and I worked hard to coach the students of my school so that they can clear NEET, JEE and other national-level entrance examinations. Currently, 20 of my students are studying in IITs, over 30 in government medical colleges and 100 in different National Institutes of Technology.
