Life as a Teacher

I believe that God knows what is best for each one. That’s how I am here in the field of teaching. In the coming days I shall be writing more on my experiences in this blessed profession.

  1. Ya ma’am, God gifted you the most noble profession in this whole world….You are really shining like the northern star in this profession..GOOD LUCK….

  2. Your students are lucky to have someone like you in their class :)

  3. You sound like a great teacher. One must be born to be a teacher. Lots of patience this profession…which I unfortunately don’t have with people. I prefer working with animals. I take my hat off for teachers. :)

    • I never wanted to be a teacher. But soon after taking up that role, I realized this is where I belong to, where I can make some difference. But I need to be more patient. Thank you, Sonel, for the visit and the kind words.

      • You are very welcome Bindu. Oh, my stepmother wanted me to become a pre-school teacher but I know myself and being a Taurean doesn’t help much either and I refused. I wanted to be a veterinarian or archeologist but she refused because I didn’t do things her way. So, I worked as a secretary most of my life until I started working for a veterinarian quite a few years ago. We moved away and he passed on but I will never forget him and what he and his wife taught me about animals…and well, I believe everything happens for a reason and I don’t have any regrets. I can only thank all my teachers in life…the good ones and the not-so-good ones.. :)

      • Thanks for sharing your experience with me, Sonel! Well, there is a reason for everything. Taking them positively is the right spirit.

  4. You seem like a wonderful teacher :) I have always admired people who leave a profound positive impact on Children … :)

  5. How wonderful I just discovered you are teacher. So I wish you a very happy Guru Purnima today!
    Regards!

  6. true, god knows wt is best for each one of us.

  7. Bindu, it was so wonderful to see your gravatar on my blog again. I have been thinking of you and wondering how you and your family are doing — wishing you the best at the start of this new school year!

    • Thanks a lot Julia! Have been reading some of your latest posts. We have no access to internet at home right now. So I couldn’t leave any comment there. Shall be doing it soon.
      Going through a lot of uncertainty (parents’ health) since July. But I am grateful I can manage. It’s not killing me, so I hope it would make me stronger! :)

  8. Doesn’t the teacher teach… We are all GODS in charge of our own destiny… Barbara

  9. Wha! Teaching is a wonderful profession!
    I always thought or dreamed about it but
    Alas! I am turned to a different world. But
    I always give much respect to my teachers
    as well as other who teach something valuable to me.
    Hey, Bindu, I am here via one of my new friend from G+
    the other day I met her at a HOA
    Keep informed
    I am at philipscom
    from Secunderabad India

    • We end up in places we least expect. That’s life, isn’t it? Who is that friend, btw? I have only one friend (my best friend)in that place – hope it is the very same one. Thank you for your kind words.

  10. I taught for two decades, and realised how important the role is, and not only the role but the awesome responsibility. It is not to be taken lightly for we have to answer for what we teach or fail to teach. Do you agree?

    • Agree. The impact teachers have on children is great and so hard to measure or evaluate. During the 12 years of my life as a teacher I have learnt a lot from my students. Each year I edit and improve myself for the benefit of my students.
      Glad to have you here. Thank you. Curiously waiting to read your blog.

      • That is nice of you to do so – improving for the benefit of your students! You show such humility when you say that. Being and becoming is a life long process. I look back sometimes and I thank God that He is moulding me, renewing my life and making me a better person. . . Age also has a part to play, I guess.

      • True! Though basically I had been the same all through, now I have started to break certain walls in the teacher-student relationship to make it less formal and more friendly. Yes, age can make a lot of changes. Thank you for your kind words.
