Mrs. Geetanjali Nanda
Teacher, Gurunanak EM School
      If there is one profession responsible for every other profession, it is teaching. And we at SchoolFinder came across someone who has bore this responsibility with her knowledge, compassion and her conviction to empower every child to reach great heights.

"...believes in simple living high thinking." 

    Tell us something about yourself.
I belong to a family with that believes in simple living high thinking. About me, I am very frank. I like painting and travelling. Apart from that, music is both my strength and weakness! I did my graduation in Psychology Honors from Utkal University, Odisha and Post Grad. Diploma in Computer Education. For preparing myself as a tutor, I did NTT and B.Ed from Kurukshetra University, Haryana.

"I prefer to learn from my own experiences."

What inspired you to pursue this profession? How long have you known that you wanted to be a teacher?
After a few months of marriage, I got an opportunity to serve as a nursery teacher in a small play school.Since then, I fell in love with this profession after which I took up courses to my students. prepare myself for this career. Now, it’s working fantastic for me as well as my students.

 How do you keep yourself updated? Do you follow any particular regime? 
I prefer to learn from my own experiences than using newspaper, television and the Internet as a resource for learning.

Anything that moves holds the attention of people.

In your experience as a teacher, what has been that one incident that has surprised you pleasantly, or otherwise?
It is nice to see that a lot of practical activities have become a part of the curriculum that helps students
to imbibe quickly and easily.

 What are a few things (in terms of subjects, rules, teaching practices etc.) that should necessarily be
included into the k-12 education system/course curriculum that is not there?
According to me, the syllabus is too vast to capture. It should be reduced considerably.

The most common myth is that teachers lead an easy and comfortable life.

If you were the Head of the Department of School Education and Literacy of the country for a day, what would you do?
I think I need more experience for answering this!

What are some common myths about your profession?
The most common myth is that teachers lead an easy and comfortable life. People don’t see the simple fact
that a teacher strives day in and out to make lives of students better and brighter.

Private tuitions are a necessary evil.
     What is your take on Smart classes? Is it entirely effective? Projector, smart boards etc.
Yes it is really effective. Anything that moves holds the attention of people. And with kids, it just excites them. They understand the concepts and chapters very fast.

What is your take on Private Tuitions, which has become so rampant these days? Is it indispensable?
Private tuitions are a necessary evil. If the teachers and parents are dedicatedly giving their attention to the
child then it is not necessary.

it is pleasant to see that punishments are not as harsh 

According to you what is the best attribute of the Indian Education System from your perspective (As someone who has been part of it for so many years)?
The best attribute about the Indian System is inclusion of multiple languages in one curriculum.

According to you how has the education system changed over the years, the way you have seen it?
Along with a lot of practical aspects in the curriculum, it is pleasant to see that punishments are not as
harsh as it used to be during our days.

How do you assess or evaluate a student?
According to their psychology. Every child is different and with different capabilities. They excel in some
areas, lack in some. Identifying these for each student and helping them move ahead positively is my goal.

I love my students and that is the driving force that keeps me moving forward.

How do you unwind after your day at school?
Spending time with my family and friends. Also, I help my daughter with her projects and assignments.

Do you want to share any experience/idea/opinion?
All I want to say that I love my students and that is the driving force that keeps me moving forward.
