FIRST DAY AT SCHOOL
15 JUNE 2015.
FINALLY IT’S HERE. (Wohooooo!)
After a 5-week long training session at FLAME, I finally find myself standing outside the school that is assigned to me for the next two years, Gumpha Road Municipal English School in Jogeshwari (E), Mumbai where I will be teaching 85 seventh-graders.
As I walk down the hallways of my school, I stop, and ponder upon my decision to join Teach For India, a decision I took about 6 months back. And now, looking at the hundreds of (unknown, for now) kids smiling at me, I know that my decision was correct, and there’s no need to look back anymore.
But does that mean I am all prepared, NO!
But does that mean I am not nervous, HELL NO!
I know about the challenges that the fellowship will throw at me, the biggest challenge, to impart excellent education to all my kids, and many more.
My reply, CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!
