Far away there in the sunshine
Are my highest aspirations.
I may not reach them, but I can
Look up and see their beauty,
Believe in them, and try to follow
Where they lead.
by Louisa May Abott
A knowledge giver is not the need of the hour, what is required is one who imparts learning shills, thinking skills, like skills and helps children face the future with resilience, confidence and a sense of commitment.
Today’s learner is going to hold the reins of society in the future. The learner needs to be adaptable learning continuously and ably – applying knowledge and skills imbibed to the requirement of the situation. In order to maximize learning, students need to inquire into, rather than being instructed.
Hence in today’s dynamic and technology driven world where the learner has to adapt to constantly changing situations, the role of a teacher and parent is manifold. Teachers and Parents are like potters – moulding the pliable clay which comes to them in the form of child. The raw material in each case is different. Grooming and shaping young impressionable minds is pretty daunting task. Let us take up the challenge. Giving of oneself is the best way to replenish ones resources. Walk the extra mile to achieve success – always be ready to sacrifice – together we will make a difference. Life is not only finding yourself. Life is also about creating yourself.
My appeal to all –
Most children need a listening ear and an understanding heart. Reach out and touch a chord.
