“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever”-Mahatma Gandhi.
To become the best version of yourself, you must upgrade yourself. Continuous learning is one of the steps that make you the best version of yourself. However, the greatest benefits of learning can be achieved under the guidance of the best teachers. If you want to keep learning throughout your life, try to continue learning under the guidance of experts. Today, we bring you the story of one such expert, Bhagwat Yuvraj Shende, who is helping his students become the best version of themselves. Continue reading to know more about his story as a teacher.
Bhagwat Sir provides geography classes to the students of NPW College, Nagpur. As a kid, he was always interested in studies and wanted to make a career in the field of teaching. However, he faced various challenges during his journey as a teacher. He says, ‘I always wanted to become a teacher. However, I did not receive support from my known ones. They wanted me to take another career path not related to teaching. However, I was adamant and decided to continue on the path of teaching.’
When talking about his journey as a teacher, Bhagwat Sir says, ‘I was unsure of the kind of response I was going to receive from my students. I did not expect such a warm welcome from them. I had always loved teaching and was passionate about sharing knowledge. Teaching is the only professional that could help me remain connected to my dreams. I am happy that my students enjoy my classes.’
Talking about the struggles faced during the pandemic, he says, ‘It was a difficult phase for every teacher and student. As the classes were off, we were unable to continue learning properly. However, I along with other teachers of our college were fortunate as we learned about Teachmint at the right time. The platform was easy to use, and we recommended Teachmint to other teachers as well.’
When asked about his educational background, he says, ‘I was always interested in studies; therefore, I decided to do my masters in geography. Also, I cleared my UGC NET to start my career as a professor.’ We also asked him about his response after getting the Diamond Educator Award. To answer that question, he says,
‘I have been teaching for the last 7-8 years. However, I did not receive any award till now. When I got to know about the Diamond Educator trophy, I was excited and extremely happy. I felt that my hard work and dedication were rewarded through this trophy.’
Bhagwat Sir has a special message for his students. He wants his students to get the best education possible. He says,
‘Students should try to learn new things every day. They should not just stick to their course books; instead, they should refer to other learning materials available online and offline. Knowledge is not just limited to textbooks, you can learn from anywhere and everywhere.’
We congratulate Bhagwat Sir for getting the Diamond Educator Award. We wish him all the best and hope to continue learning from him. Thank you for choosing us.
