Education functions as a keystone in modifying and uplifting
the society. The core values an educationist should possess includes
excellence, truthfulness, dignity, empathy and student focus. A teacher, a
facilitator, can play an important role in nurturing these positive aspects in
a student. To me a teacher should be a pillar of strength, motivation and
guidance.

I teach Physics to a group of students of mixed abilities in
the senior secondary level. My primary aim is to instill and nurture an
interest in the subject. I keep in mind a child centric approach while planning
the lessons and try to make it enjoyable so as to foster learning.  The academic performance of my students is my
responsibility. In order to improve that I resort to different constructive
methodologies of teaching. I adopt differential teaching and learning in my
classroom with a plethora of activities. Different methods of assessment will
help me analyse the academic progress of students. This gives the confidence to
zero in on methodologies that worked well or helps me change the techniques of
teaching.

I strongly believe in the role of a teacher as a facilitator
or guide. The teaching- learning process should not be dominated by the
teacher. Rather, the teacher should be instrumental in constructing situations
which will turn out beneficial for students to develop critical thinking and a
rationalised approach. A classroom should be a positive place to learn, imbibe
and grow. For this, there should be an environment of mutual respect between
the teacher and the students. It is likely that all students may not agree with
me on certain points. This often triggers a productive discussion where I
respect their view points. To ascertain these points, I draw my values from
‘Social reconstruction’ approach. I acknowledge the positives of cultural
transmission as the knowledge and wisdom accumulated over the years need to be
transmitted.

Though I won’t agree with all the insights highlighted by
‘GNP code’, a well-trained and motivated workforce is essential for the
upliftment of any country. So I try steering the thoughts of my students in a
direction that will help them choose a career path which turns out to be
beneficial for the society.
