‘Learning needs to be more exciting’

Who is your favourite teacher?

My favourite teacher is Deepa ma’am, our social studies teacher.

What do you like about her?

She teaches very well and her method is very innovative. She playfully narrates stories and that helps us remember concepts. Deepa ma’am is more than a teacher; she is also a friend to us, who speaks to us about subjects outside the syllabus, too. 

What you wish teachers wouldn’t do? 

Some teachers in some schools say students shouldn’t use the restroom during class hours. I don’t think that is right. 

One thing you wish teachers would do?

Learning should be made more exciting. Teaching shouldn’t be limited to mere bookish subjects and it should be done using small fun ways. 

Would you like to be a teacher when you grow up?

Yes. I know a lot of teachers inspire many kids; I can imagine myself being a teacher.
