“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself”-John Dewey.
This adage perfectly captures the importance of education and how it can lighten up the life of every learner. Education helps people progress on the path of development and self-discovery. They learn about themselves and also gain knowledge about their vicinity. However, the path to education is only half-traveled if students do not get the support of a good educator. Students can learn best under the guidance of a dedicated teacher. Moreover, teachers should encourage students to stretch their limits. Today, we bring you the story of one such educator who is helping his students on their path to success. Continue reading to know more about his journey.
Sourav Basu is a school teacher providing biology classes to students in classes 9-12. In addition, he also helps students prepare for the NEET examination. Talking about his journey as a teacher, he says, ‘I followed my heart and decided to choose teaching as a full-time career. I was always passionate about learning and wanted to spread knowledge. I am happy that I chose to teach. Because of being indulged in this profession, I can support my students and help them carve their career path and attain success.’
Talking about the educational qualification of Sourav Sir, he mentioned that he completed his B.Ed degree in 2006. Soon after completing his degree, he joined a school and started teaching. Since then, he also decided to help his students prepare for the NEET examination. Many of his students successfully cleared the exam and are on their way to becoming a doctor.
Talking about Teachmint and how he learned about the platform, Sourav Sir says that one of his fellow teachers introduced him to the platform. He recalls, ‘We were facing difficulties talking to and connecting with our students during the pandemic. All of us were looking for alternatives to establish a secure communication channel. That is when one of my fellow teachers recommended Teachmint, and we decided to try the platform. We found the platform easy-to-use and on-boarded our students on the same.’
“Teachmint is a great platform for every teacher. It helped me re-establish my communication with my students. Also, features like interactive whiteboard and tests are add-ons. With these features, I can make my classes more interactive.”
Sourav Sir has a special message for his students. He says, ‘Students should focus more on gaining knowledge and not on scoring high marks. They should prioritize learning. The focus should be on building a strong foundation by clearing the concepts. Moreover, they should select the right learning material for building their base. Studying from an unsuitable study guide may not clear their doubts. Also, students should not be hesitant to ask for help from their teachers.’
Sourav Sir recommends Teachmint to all teachers and encourages them to try the platform. We are happy to be associated with him and teachers of his kind. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors. Thank you for choosing us.
