“Teachers can change lives with the right mix of chalk and challenges.”
– Joyce Meyer
Every person is born with an inbuilt purpose in life, and each purpose is very individualistic in nature, one different from another. To serve this purpose, it is vital to have a good understanding of right-wrong, strength-weakness, selfish-selfless, benefit-harm, and most important, yet the most difficult, to have the knowledge of Oneself. It was the incredible teacher, Sullivan of Helen Keller, Chanakya of Chandragupta, and Vishwamitra of Lord Ram, who had the ability to scrape the true potential of their pupils and make their lives an inspiration for the generations to come. Good teachers play an indispensable role in molding an individual. In fact, they serve as the pillars of a nation, and are the foundation for the country’s future, motivating students to be the best versions of themselves.
BYJU’S, India’s leading Ed-tech company pays tribute to teachers and constantly believes that without dedicated teachers, prosperity and success might only be aspirational ideals. We’ve had some principals tell us how teachers play a vital role in building a good future for their students, and shaping their personalities by transforming them into strong and wonderful beings. Read on.
“A teacher has historically been the most revered person in India, and there is a good reason for it. The teacher, and only the teacher, has the potential to take the student and turn him/her into a hero, a leader, a scientist, or an artist. A teacher has the ability to see the best potential in their students and bring it out in the open for the world to see. There are millions of motivated teachers across the world, who are silently but surely shaping the human race to higher levels of knowledge and service.”
Dr. Paridhi Bhargava, Principal, Little World School, Jabalpur

“Learning cannot be forced onto students; it has to be innate, creating a sense of inquisitiveness and an undying quest for knowledge. Lifelong learning has been known to make children responsible for their learning. It uses different pedagogical techniques for different sets of children to connect with them emotionally and build a rapport with them. Teachers should set clear expectations in alignment with learning goals, and practice reflection on an everyday basis.”
Mrs. Poonam Shekhawat, Principal, Vedaanta The Global School, Indore

“Apparently, a teacher has a great impact on the lives of students. Always considered the pivotal source of information, a teacher has the ability to inspire and motivate students skillfully toward not just academic growth but holistic development. It depends largely on the creativity and understanding of the ‘Gurus’ to stimulate the curiosity of learners and channel their untapped energies in a fruitful direction. One pen, one paper, and one teacher can change the entire world.”
Mrs. Neenu Maben, Vice-Principal, Joy Senior Secondary School, Jabalpur

Every child born in this universe is a new thought of God. Nurturing this manifestation in him or her, is an opportunity that one gets as a teacher. A teacher of a guru does not modify or add to, when one comes to him, rather, he/she transforms the individual completely. The world witnessed the unfolding of great wisdom in Vivekananda, led by his guru, Shri Ramkrishna Paramhansa, who intoxicated him to reach to the threshold of human intelligence, into the realm of intuitiveness. The aura of a guru is enough to vibrate the whole personality of his disciple.
Mrs. Reena Khurana, Principal, Golden International School, Indore

“Because my teacher believed in me, I never give up, now I’m flying towards my dreams. This is the definition of a good teacher, who is committed to a noble profession. A teacher is one who puts his heart and soul into teaching. By doing this, he/she ignites the passion and sense of hard work in students, and equally contributes to achieve the shared goals. Teachers promote a healthy relationship with students, and develop a meaningful community inside the classroom through skills of communication, collaboration, listening, empathy and patience.”
Charles Kujur, Vice Principal, Campion School, Raipur

“A good teacher identifies the strengths of a child and takes care to nurture them gradually. And the first step in doing so is to build a sustainable relationship with the student. Of course, every relationship comes with its share of commitments and responsibilities, love and trust. If every teacher takes care of certain important things like remembering the different aspects of a student’s lives and interests, talking to his/her students about non-school related subjects, sharing inspirational stories, being patient in hearing every child, often using words of affirmation, and praise the child for who he/she is, they can build a great relationship with students.”
Mrs. Anindita Ghosh, Principal, Pranavananda Academy, Raipur
