“If someone asks me to rate Teachmint, I would give Teachmint a five-star rating or maybe more. The platform helped me in acing my role as an online educator. To date, I have recommended Teachmint to fifteen teachers, and they love the experience as well”, mentioned Meenakshi Sharma, a Post Graduate Teacher from Kangra, Himachal Pradesh.
Meenakshi Ma’am is an enthusiastic and inspiring teacher, she faced many challenges in life but never gave up. Everyone is unique and has an X factor that differentiates them from others, right? Her X factor is her confidence, will to win, and positive attitude. Remember Martin Luther King Jr.’s quote- “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that”, that’s exactly what the story of Meenakshi Ma’am demonstrates.
Her childhood was not full of resources, but was surely full of dedication to learn and make her own identity. The closest private school she remembers from those days was 25 kilometers away from her home. Back then, she could not afford such expensive education & additional expenses like travel costs. Therefore, she decided to complete the 12th standard from a government school nearby. The same was the case with pursuing graduation & post-graduation. Lack of finances did not allow her to pursue higher education from a good university, however, she managed to complete post-graduation from an open university. Her willingness to learn was so high that she ended up having two master's degrees along with a diploma in computer application. There were hundreds of students like her who wanted to study but did not have access to quality education. Hence, she decided to join a private school in her town. Today, she completes 5 wonderful years in the teaching profession, she has impacted the lives of more than 500 students in this span of time. Her story is not only moving but also very inspiring.
While talking about her online teaching career, Meenakshi Ma’am shared that she started her online teaching journey almost one year back. While the world was fighting the pandemic, teachers were facing a challenge to run smooth online classes. She initially conducted classes on applications like WhatsApp & google meet, but since these apps are not designed for teaching, conducting classes on them was difficult. Luckily, she came across Teachmint and installed it immediately. Before suggesting the application to the school management, she tested the platform herself. Once satisfied, she recommended Teachmint to all her colleagues. She loves teaching on Teachmint and teaches over 150 students enrolled in her classroom. She has many favorite features and admires the app overall.
“ I love how Teachmint provides wonderful features like a whiteboard, online tests, automated attendance, etc. at zero cost. The online teaching process is so convenient and flexible with its wonderful features. If someone asked me to choose between online & offline classes one year back, I would have chosen offline teaching. But since I have started teaching on Teachmint, I’ll choose online teaching at any given day.”
Her teaching mantra is teaching students while keeping them motivated & inspired. Making learning fun for her students is her primary goal and ensuring their overall success is her top priority.
