It felt somewhat special being on the other side of the teacher’s bench. The first greeting with the staff was not like an ideal one but gradually I have managed to develop a friendly support from them though. I went with my 5 other peers on my first day in Kendriya Vidyalaya, Andrews Ganj and reached the school at exactly 6:50. Yes we were on time, but what did it profit? Little not a lot. We didn’t get to meet the principal of the school neither we got to met our subject teachers. We just met a teacher who could co-ordinate with the rest of the school that some people have come for the “Practice Teaching” as he use to say. Thus my first day was the dullest day possible of an SEP I guess. Yes others too complain about their bad experience but I think I surpassed everyone.
Another day came and I set off to my given school again. We were called to invigilate an exam of eighth standard which surprisingly turned out to be that very class that I have to teach. Experience was overall a good one. Students were sweet, disciplined, and highly active. Almost every student completed his/her paper in 2 hours and I had to let them go before the bell rung.
Now the vacations have started so I’m busy making my lesson plans an hoping for the best to happen.
