Today I thought about sharing some of my stories, where I started understanding liking of perticular subjects or where teachers found my strengths and encouraged me further.
I was in a very good school, I must say during my 1st to 7th grade, though it wasn't a big city, a small town school in Kolhapur district MH INDIA [definitely far better developed than my hometown/brithplace], where I started getting exposure to, all areas, whether it was science or arts or sports. Most of my school teachers always encouraged as well as travelled with students for district or state level competitions. I participated in plays/acting, essay writings, drawings, dancing, plays, science speeches and so on. And still can't deny the fact why my school was best, it was because of my school's leader- headmaster and his vision.
I started liking languages or physics because of kind of teachers I met and the way they used to teach it. I never had to memorize something because of their teaching style. It used to happen organically.
I wasn't very good at sport, but still I partcipated and when started growing up started building an habit to explore things. I am not good at it until now but I remember, when I mentioned that thing to one of my sport teacher, he said, any sport requires lot of qualities, I know you might not be my best player, but you are going to be a best captain for my team.
Still I am not a sportperson but I think I am definitely a bossy person, which my teacher found in me at very early of my age. And I think I still have lot more interest in leadership.
Throughout my schooling I was a class persident, somehow not sure, but always found that whenever I stand for something, I get enough women support along side, whether it was my college life or professional career. Some of the men leaders I came across they supported me in my career journey as well. And those male/female leaders who didn't, I learnt lot of things from those as well and found what qualities I will avoid when I reach to their level.
So learning happens in all kind of experiences, whether those are positive or negative, things in your favor or in your oppose.
What are some of your school stories? Did you like/hate any specific teacher? Did you like any subject because of your teacher and the way of teaching? I would love to hear your stories. So keep me posted on those.
Until we meet, happy leading and let'ss lead together. Stay safe. Bye for now.
