How long have you been teaching?

I have been teaching for the last 14 years; I started in 2008.

What drew you to the profession?

Pursuing teaching was not a sudden decision. I am the eldest in my family and I started out by teaching my younger siblings. There were other cousins, too. I was fascinated by the idea that an idea in your brain, can within 15 minutes (of teaching) travel to someone else’s brain. That is a miracle which I experienced when I was probably in class seven. In college, my seniors suggested I should go into the education field. I told them that I would rather teach students in college than those in school. They advised that I should not look down upon the profession and that I could devise various ways to teach school students. Meanwhile, I would lead study circles in college and I earned the moniker of a teacher among my friends. I then had this urge to work in a school, where there would be many students. These were flashes of inspiration that gave me a purpose in life.
