For those of you, who are not already aware of my PTJ, this is the post to read. And those of you, who are already aware of it, read more.
I did use to put science-maths fundays to my siblings at times. But teaching for money is somewhat different. One needs to ‘act’ like a professional. I try my best. In the process, I have started looking at the world (albeit only at times) through the eyes of a teacher. I know this sounds so weird. I mean, afterall I just spend few hours each week with tenth class kids!
What do I mean by the phrase ‘looking at the world through the eyes of a teacher’? I am not sure if I can explain this fully. But there’s surely one thing that I can write about. Today, it so happened that I was teaching Physics to the two kids together. In some time, I realized that one of them was actually too low on concentration. I ‘hated’ it. I don’t belive that I ‘hated’ it when I myself, had always been a student like him! All this time! Did someone say that you can’t feel the other guys pain till you actually step into his shoes? So true! Just so true!
I am sure that the next time I switch to a nap-taking-mode in any of the classes, today’s incident will help me come out of it. Good for me!
