Indore: The two-day Global Teacher’s Meet held at a private school concluded on Sunday. Addressing the gathering, Dr A Senthil Kumaran from Bangaluru, talked about small steps educators can take to hone teaching skills and be more acceptable to students.
“Every literate person talks about his schooling including teachers, infrastructure and principals in their conversation,” Kumaran said. He urged teachers to determine how they would like to be talked about.
“People in India used to respect teachers and schools, they still do,” Kumaran said. However, he felt that unhappy teachers don’t leave good impression on students.
“Our work as teachers begins from who we are – from being good homemakers, daughters-in-law, mothers to adjusting people,” Kumaran said. He suggested educators to come up with innovative ideas and implement them to get better results. Kumaran also talked about balancing Saraswati, that is, education and Laxmi, that is, financial aspect with Ganesha, that is, happiness.
