Editor’s note: We will be posting the winning entries from ‘My Rockstar Moment’ contest this entire week. We hope you enjoy these inspiring stories by our rockstar teachers.
Here’s the Rockstar moment of Ms. Rabia Khan of Mount Abu Public school.
I had an impression in my mind that the students can be handled properly only when we are strict . Believing in this I started the first day of my teaching . I started behaving in a very strict way but a child never listened to me.
A day came when I decided not to pay attention on him any more . But slowly and gradually I felt bad and I asked him to start with the subject he liked most . He took out Maths, his favourite subject and completed his work without being intervened by me . Then I asked him to take out the subject he wanted . Now I understood how to handle this child and from that day I started his work with the subject of his choice and he started taking interest in his study and showed a drastic improvement in his academics .
This was not just an incident for me but it was really a great lesson as it taught me how to handle the child and how to deal with them . That experience still helps me in handling the students in a better way and set an example .
