Jai Ho to all the Gurus who teach me everyday!

Guru Purnima....The day when we offer our reverences to all those who imparted knowledge , wisdom and skills to us. I remember all my teachers and people in my life from whom I learnt something or the other. While some are remembered almost everyday, there are some that I make it a point to remember them on this special day .

Last year when I was talking in the school assembly on this occasion, I wanted to share with all my students how much I learnt in the past and how much I am learning now. And then it struck me while talking to them that each day I am learning something from them too.
Children, young people and the adults that I meet everyday, teach me something every moment. In a way they are gurus too!
I offer my sincere respects to all those who teach me day in and day out. They make me feel that life is one beautiful experience which needs to be rejoiced.


The toddlers from pre-primary who teach me!

I start with the youngest acorns of our school.
Their trust in us that we will look after them the way their parents do, teaches me how important it is to live up to the trust factor.
Their dependability on the school teaches me that I need to be highly responsible in my role.


The acorns of Primary & Junior Wings
When it comes to my acorns from the primary and junior wings, their immense belief in their teachers and the school, their complete faith in what the teacher says as right,...teaches me the importance of keeping that belief system alive and make myself capable of that faith.

The Highly Effective Young people from 7 Habits School in the Sr Wing
My young acorns in the senior wing, who will surely contribute to the growth of a value system in the nation are teaching me that irrespective of age, one can be rooted to principles. Values and discipline are not the forte of any age group, it belongs to all age groups at all times.
Enjoying to be proactive and striving to be effective, each one teaches me life’s effectiveness improves if we are synergistic and make sure that we put first things first. Their efforts to understand first and then to be understood, makes me empathic.
Accepting each others’ strengths and weaknesses and still being friendly, I learn from to think win win!

I see stars twinkle in every child’s eyes when I appreciate or talk to them. I learnt the importance of appreciation and acknowledgement because thats what motivates people into achieving greater things in life.
I salute to all my acorns who are helping me to consolidate my principled centered life.

My teaching team who teach me a lot!
When it comes to my teachers, I bow down to their positive spirit and their readiness to learn new things. Ego is not in their mind, but their self esteem is what I deeply respect. Their fine balance between home and work teaches me how I can manage the work within the time available. Their spirited approach to new ways of teaching learning, their enthusiasm at accepting new ideas and their open arms to welcome change...teach me to be a learner all my life.
My reverences to all my teachers on this occasion.

Parents community who communicate many lessons to me.
There are so many parents that I meet as the head of the school. Each one teaches me different aspects of life. If one parent teaches me what is love and care for children another shows me how important it is to instil values in children.
Last 5 years that I have been interacting with the parent community of the school, I learnt from them that education is means through which many dreams can be realized.
Of course there are parents who also teach me ...what not to be! Sometimes when I see their impatience at not understanding new ways of teaching methods in our school, I learn that patience is a virtue.
When I see some of them wanting to know only about how much percentage their child got or where he stands in the class, I learn that I should not measure a child by marks alone.

After the student passes out of the school, many parents don’t make it a point to teach the child to continue the bond with the school. Unknowingly they are not teaching the value of relationships. I learn from this that I should develop long lasting relationships at all times to keep the humanity alive.

My Greetings to you on "Guru Poornima" day madam. Guru in a real sense is the one who drives away our ignorance and enlighten us. The way ,you have mentioned your Students, Teachers, Parents and others as your "Guru"s in your post is very refreshing . In that way you are the "Guru" for many of us

padma said...

I salute you madam that i am learning everyday new things from you. In my childhood i learnt that we should do pooja to our guru on this day, but partically i learnt that doing pooja is not important but what ever we learn from guru should and must implement in our daily life.one thing we should learn that every one are guru from whom we are learning

I am a firm believer in the adage that we keep learning throuhout our life.Happiness or adversities,both play an important role in teaching us. We should have a knack for learning even from the most mundane things of life.I salute all the prolific learners of our school for their enthusiasm to learn more n more everyday.Regards Manjula Bhasin

My greetings to you ma'm on this auspicious occasion. I feel very happy to share my feelings with a great personality who taught me everything in life. You are the person from whom I got my inspiration from. You guided me in times of need. Practically, you have transformed me into what I am now. Your lectures made me come out of my coccon. You are my supreme spirit from whom I derived my strength to cover the milestones. I offer my salutations to you ma'm.
My parents also guided me through my way. They solved out my problems and made me cheerful when I am depressed. They are the ones who helped me know how much I progressed till now, to renew my determination and set goals for the future. My salutations to them. This list never completes...
My friends, teachers, relatives, juniors, sister, drivers, custodians, attendents and many more whom I come across daily. Even the sun, moon, stars, planets and many immaterial things also left a foot print in my life.
They influence my life very greatly. SALUTATIONS TO EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING.

If u want to be happy and successful in life, never stop learning....I learnt many things from my mates who are around me always...I learnt to be well balanced from our school director Mr.Dhanunjaya.I learnt to set an example as a role model for others from our school principal Mrs.Seetha murthy who has a smile which develops and inspires our talents. I learnt to be active and participate in every activity from our school CCA Coordinator Mrs.sri devi.I learnt to put first things first from our senior wing in charge Mrs.Bhaskar ratna and our biology mam Ms.Anu.I learnt to motivate others from Mrs.Jaya prada and Ms.Nisha.I learnt to be principled from Mrs.vidya prabhu and Mrs.leela.I learnt to organize work in a systematic way from Mr.Ravi prasad.I learnt to be caring from Mrs.susheela and Mr.giri.I learnt to be passionate about things from our aerobics mam Ms.Treela,though i attended only one class of aerobics. I learnt all the IB profiles and 7-habits from my juniors who are very enthusiastic.




AND VERY IMPORTANT,I learnt to be proactive and to balance happiness and sadness ,from our school HEAD BOY [sandeep].I learnt to be responsible from our school HEAD GIRL [shweta].I learnt to be a good communicator from our school STUDENT CO-ORDINATOR [lohith].I learnt to be the most enthusiastic and informative from the STUDENT COUNCIL.I learnt to be an observer from Udaya,Pranav,Keerthana of 10th and sruthi chaithanya from 9th.I learnt to develop sense of humour from my class boys, who really have the team spirit. And in any case , I think others have to learn the unity and bonds from girls of 10th 'c'.I feel great to be one of them.
Last but not the least, I learnt to be affectionate from Rehma ayaa and also from all the ayaa's.And I also learnt to be punctual from my bus driver – sameer.

Seetha Murty said...

Rishi: although I said it in the assembly today, i am saying it onc again, ur tolerance of ur discomfort in that high altitude with snow all around us, taught me how to be immensely tolerant.You know what after I said that and we all began to sing the National Song,two flies were troubling me and irritating me to no end. i didnt want to move b'coz it is disrespect to the national anthem, so i remembered your tolerance and told myself that I will tolerate these flies...sure enough I did! Thanks yougman for reminding me to be tolerant once again.

Meghana:Inspite of the rough times that we had last session, I trust that you will be one of the students that I will be proud of forever.I deeply respect ur regards for ur parents and ur devotion to ur dad. he is a fine gentleman and I am sure u will make him proud by doing well in all aspects.For the hardwork that he is doing by staying away from u in a different country and making sure that u n ur sistr r getting gud education, u must feel proud of ur parents.

Chaiti said...

Dear Madam,

Thanks for making school a place I love to come in the morning.

Everyday is a new day and teaches me something or the other. All I have to do is to make a concious effort to identify it and use it.

We keep on learning from all : Small kids, young adults and our collegues and friends.

Yes, I also want to say thanks to you and all others for what I learnt from them. This is the opportunity to show my respects to the Gurus.

Learning Never Ends.

Thank you for giving me the courage to use my mind as well and as honestly as I can and never be afraid to question.
Thank you for showing me how to stand firm for what I belive right even when I am shaking in my shoes.

Chaiti

Jai ho to the school that has taught me so much in spite of the fact that I am a teacher there. Jai ho to all those students and parents who bestow so much of faith and trust in us, Jai ho to all my colleagues who are so open in their minds and hearts but still make such a wonderfully close knit team. Jai ho to you for truly leading from the front and teaching me so many things in life. My salutations to all my gurus.

kavya said...

mam, i always had wondered how you keep yourself so organized and smile always which is of course our culture. i liked the most about our school is that everyone feels a bonding towards it and treat it as a most memorable experience rather than just a building and students in it. i always loved the new practices in the school and the way we look at all the occasions. i thank for the school community which is making it happen and giving us education with values than just literacy. I am hoping [ no strong belief] that we are going to reach the pinnacle of success.

"A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops. ..."....
....Any day! .and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all those people who have helped me grow into a better person , and when I think of the word “teacher” the first two people who come to my mind are….yess !!!...MY PARENTS!...it’s a boon to have been born to such wonderful parents who love you for just whatever you are…they have always given me the space I needed to grow, to learn, to explore the world on my own…(though I know they were always there…watching me from somewhere close)!!.. They taught me to be myself, to face the world, to be everything I am. Thank you mom and dad!
…Id also like to thank you maam…because you’re no doubt the perfect example of dignity and simplicity. I really admire the way you carry yourself in every situation and the amazing knowledge and ideas you share with us. Kudos to you maam! I’d like to thank all my teachers who have taught me numerous schools I have been to…and most importantly the teachers here at Silver Oaks…first, my homeroom teacher Ms.Manjula Bhasin who’s a complete package of immense knowledge and fun…it’s a pleasure to be in her class. My math teacher Ms. Anuradha…who’s been just so patient with me…even though I confess I would be one of the most difficult students of hers. My physics teacher, Ms Ratnamala who’s one of the most proactive teachers I’ve ever come across..She makes it sure that each of her student knows everything she teaches…My bio teacher Ms Anu…who makes her subject just so interesting that you have no option but to like it. My hindi teacher..Ms Jayaprada who’s one of the best language teachers I’ve ever had…And of course Ms Bhaskar Ratna maam who is always there to help any of her students may it be academics or anything else!..

Mam all the information and thoughts are very motivative and teach us that we can learn many things even from our juniors .As you said teachers are really hard workers beacuse even my mother was a teacher she used to take care of my brother and even the work of school.Jai ho to all the teachers and I wish that even in future it is the teacher who teach but not robos.Sorry for the delay but "happy guru pournami" and many of us learn many things from you mam.

Teachers are people who impart their own learnings to others.People who guide,people who enlighten,people who are forms of erudites and inspire minds to be big,think bigger and act much bigger.But all of this really depends on people being "taught".How much of the learnings do they really put into effect and how much of it do we really understand.My point is well exlained by two cases,people I have always been fascinated with, Albert Einstein and Abdul Kalam.Brilliant though they are, these are people who have been highly influenced by their teachers.Take Einstein,teachers punished him for asking too many questions,called his mother to school and brandished her son useless..!!His permanent place in the class was in the corner of the classroom,where he stood,blissful and wondered and wondered and wondered.He was thrown out of classroom too many times and finally never went back to school.But he gave us our "E equal M C Square" (I love this theory.It doesnt describe light as a source but as a source of life,profound!) For Einstein his teacher was the world that he constantly observed,his mother who encouraged him and put him upto his otherwise known as "ridiculous" ideas.He grew up from being a "pathetic" student at Math to being..well..a source of biggest learnings of all times.Whilst,Abdul Kalam hails from a small village,fisherman father,studied in schools that couldnt afford a mat.His teacher saw a spark in APJ,and tutored to the point of perfection.He possessed the tool (his brilliant mind) but his teacher taught him how to use that tool (taught him how to think,analyze,apply and learn/unlearn).Kalam has always relegated on young minds the importance of a good teacher and the importance of good education.For him, his teacher was in his classroom,who taught him and opened his mind to what lay beyond the realms of his classroom. The message that these two cases and countless cases (known and unknown) carry, your teacher will be the one who opens your mind and helps you become "bigger than your body".You could be five feet five inches or two feet 5 inches,doesnt matter,your mind and its thoughts will always make you taller.I say find a person that helps this happen and make him or her your teacher and dont let the opportunity go waste.A teacher is not always the one standing at the other end of the classroom.Because,after you learn,you need to teach,and to make that knowledge transfer meaningful,you need to learn your best.In effect,Ma,I know you and your amazing team,have done that to a tremendous extent.The kids,under the tutelage of such able hands,will be all set to become "teach-ers" themselves.And that is what this world needs,more and more such healthy minds.Because only healthy,powerful,positive minds can tackle all that this world has become and ought not to be.
