I had a conventional way of teaching previously. During the training, the trainers treated us as school kids which helped me build perception of understanding the student’s point of view. I was highly moved by the problem sharing exercise where the teacher has to listen to every student’s problems individually. I am now more aware of child psychology.

I was a scared girl once at home, but teaching brought me to a challenging world and believing in myself. This workshop has given me another perspective to teach through interactive methods, keeping the students energized. I stayed with people of different religions and culture and developed a sense of living through no discrimination and interfaith harmony.
