“Recognition is a reward in itself. Any form of appreciation, even a small word, is important.”- Vikrant Massey
Sometimes, a little pat on the back can do wonders. It is proven, that individuals tend to produce better results when they see their efforts getting recognized. Something very similar recently happened with Mahesh Sir, Diamond Educator, Teachmint Teacher Recognition Program.
Mahesh Gangadhar Myanpawar is a private educator who hails from Aurangabad, Maharashtra. With hard work, dedication, enthusiasm, and consistency, he earned the Diamond Educator Trophy. Mahesh Sir started teaching several years ago, initially, he was associated with an organization, but he later decided to teach independently. He is now a private educator & teaches all the subjects of Mechanical Engineering. While expressing his joy after receiving the Diamond Trophy, he mentioned something very touching.
"I have worked for various organizations previously, however, I never felt rewarded, appreciated, or even recognized for the efforts and hard work I used to put in. But Teachmint has changed everything for me. I started my online teaching journey on Teachmint almost a year ago, and I have seen so much growth in this period of time. Each effort I put in is not only recognized but also appreciated. I used to doubt my decision of teaching independently a few times, but I worry no more about it. Receiving the Diamond Educator Award is proof that my decision was absolutely right.
His family and students were more than happy when the trophy arrived home. Mahesh Sir mentioned that it was his marriage anniversary on the day he received the award. “My wife called it the best anniversary gift ever”, added Mahesh Sir. He teaches more than five hundred students on Teachmint, he teaches subjects like Mathematics, Physics, Mould Manufacturing, Workshop Mathematics, etc. His students were at the top of the world when he shared the good news with them. “ I received more than 500 messages on different platforms, each and every student of mine extended their good wishes personally. Their smiles and joy were priceless to me. Seeing so much pride in their eyes for me was a moment to remember. What else can a teacher ask for?”, mentioned Mahesh Sir.
Being an experienced online teacher, Mahesh Sir has a few suggestions for the new online educators-
“We often tend to doubt ourselves or underestimate our true potential. However, the youth of the 21st century is of utmost power as they have the support of great & advanced technology. Ordering medicines at the doorstep, completing master’s from top universities while sitting at home, teaching students from all over the world, etc. there’s almost nothing that can’t be done online in today’s time. All we need is to recognize our strengths, polish them, and keep going. Online teaching is a blessing for all educators to expand their horizons and reach the top. Earlier, I used to teach students only from Aurangabad, I never imagined that I’ll be teaching Mechanical Engineering to students from all over the world. But something that I have realized lately is that where there is a will, there is a way.”
His words are truly inspiring and so are his actions. Teaching 500 students back to back, conducting classes for more than 12 hours a day is not an easy task, but he did it all. With his constant dedication to grow, he continues to inspire thousands of students & teachers. He makes us believe in the “sky is the only limit”. We wish Mahesh Sir all the best for his future, his win is our win.
