Happy Teachers Day

Teachers day is around the corner. It is true that though i did not like school I liked some of my teachers and remember them years afterwards.  As indicated in one of my previous blog entries I was really the Average Joe in class, there should have been no good reason for any teacher to show any sort of special interest in my upbringing. But that was not true :-). There were teachers in school and college who reposed some faith in me. This teachers day i want to make a sincere vote of thanks to those different teachers.

Sr. Marion , IBMV, She was one class teacher who thought that after all i was not “one good for nothing boy” . She motivated me to excel in Literature and Sports. Even i could not believe myself when i got the highest marks in English and the first prize in 100mts dash, ball throwing, and second in cycling. I even did better in Maths and Science that year , why ? She made me believe in myself. That’s what a teacher must do. Wherever she is today, i am sure she is inspiring some Average Joe to excel. !

Mrs. Rajeev : My teacher in primary school, again one teacher who thought that a kid liking History for a subject is not abnormal ! Till date my interest for historical studies is intact and i silently pursue that interest.

Mr. Kini :  My Maths sir at tuition class. For whatever reason known best only to God , he was one person whose way of teaching maths made me feel that maths was just another subject that could also be studied.

There were many other teachers whom i liked a lot in later years of my academic pursuit, but the reason why the above three are outstanding is because they believed in me when no one else did.   This teachers day i want to thanks them and wish them good health.

Those were the teachers who made a difference to my otherwise dull school life. Do you remember the teachers who changed your life? Comments are welcome !
