1. Tell us more about your experience as an educator.

I have been teaching for more than 15 years now. As an educator, I have always felt that motivation is the key. An educator should motivate the student properly to educate him successfully.


2. What is your opinion of the Indian education system and how would you like to change that?

Indian education system helps in enriching the student's knowledge but the one thing that I always find that the system lacks is practical knowledge. The system is not that much connected to the practical experience of day to day life. I would like to introduce vacational education and life centric education on a large scale.


3. What changes in the teaching methodologies have you seen in recent times?

The major change that I have noticed is that teachers are now explaining the concepts with more examples. They are using different types of Teaching learning materials.


4. How does education help one do well in their career?

Education is the weapon that sharps the inner quality of mankind so proper education will help a person to get his /her job or live a successful life as well.


5. Do you think teaching as a profession is viewed at par with corporate jobs?

No. I don't think so. Teaching is still viewed as a feminine and homely job. It is not given equal importance or respect as any other corporate job even though it is the founding factor of other career opportunities.


6. How can we adopt technology to make teaching more effective?

We can make use of audiovisual aids while teaching. We can teach in online classes also and many more examples can be given in this context.


7. Why does India need more educators like you?

A teacher should have proper knowledge of his /her subject. He/she should be active, motivating, impartial, friendly and should have the quality to transact the lesson successfully. I think I am having all of these qualities as a teacher.
