While teaching is considered the biggest profession of the 21st century, I consider it the “Noblest Profession” of all time. I would like to dedicate my thinking first to God for helping me choose this profession. Then I would like to extend my gratitude to my mentor, Dr. Giselle D’Souza for not only helping me to embrace my dream of teaching but to transform it to reality. Finally, my passion for teaching also draws its inspiration from children who help me learn something new each and every day. Gloria Borges

Grade VIII A

Being born and raised in a family of teachers, teaching probably runs in my blood. I worked in a corporate firm before getting into teaching. The job satisfaction, the respect that I get from my students, the smile on the face of someone when I say that I am a teacher is unparalleled. Teaching is the base of all the other professions. Today when I look back, I don’t repent leaving my corporate job for teaching. I am happy and proud to be able to nurture young minds, be a stepping stone to their future and last but not the least, to be A TEACHER!!!
Kanchan Pandit

Grade VIII B

I have chosen to be a teacher because to me teaching is as important as sport is to a player. The thrill of seeing the twinkle in the eyes of a triumphant student, who has just grasped a new skill, is as euphoric as a goal/six is to a player. It also gives me the opportunity to make children realize that they are stronger and more resilient than they ever thought possible. Kshama Mendez

I was inspired by one of my teachers in school who spotted me among the crowd and shaped me and nurtured my skills to become a capable human being. She showed me a path to touch lives as she did mine. Teena Asadi

Grade IX B

I was never inspired to become a teacher. Only once I started teaching I realised the change I could make in the lives of students. That gave me a sense of empowerment which I could pass on to the students. I also realised I have a big role to play because in some way the future of the students is in my hands. Afra Khan

Grade X A

I chose to be a teacher because in my own little way, even without realizing it, I know I can influence the young minds of children to be better human beings, not only by imparting holistic education, but also by imbibing values, morals and helping them to fulfil their responsibilities towards one and all Donalyn Santiago

The main person who influenced me to become a teacher was my mother. This was because a teacher is a life long learner and she is always young at heart.

This profession has given me the opportunity to share knowledge and enhance it. Sanita Lopes

Marathi

मै अपने जीवन में शिक्षिका बनना उचित समजी, क्योकि शिक्षक ही एक ऐसा आधार संतभ है, ऐसी धूरी है जो बच्चों के भविष्य का निर्माण  – करता होता है| शिक्षा अज्ञानता रुपी अंधकार को धूर कर ज्ञान-रुपी प्रकाश आलोकित करता है| उनका पथ प्रदर्शन करता है ताकि भावी बच्चे सुनहरे राष्ट्र का  निर्भान कर सकें| यहि एक पेश है जहाँ शिक्षकों को सर्वश्रेष्ठ सम्मान प्राप्त होता है| 

अत: मैं शिक्षका पद पर आसीन होकर गर्व महसूस     करती   हूँ|

Teaching gives an opportunity to work with young people and to be creative in conveying information to them so as to share my passion for these subjects.

Psychologist & Remedial Educator

My passion for working with differently abled children was sparked very early in life when I visited a special needs centre during my 1st year in college. This, coupled with the fact that I had a great psychology professor to guide me, led me without hesitation to chose this career path.

The fact that I do not recall a single school day where a child has not brought about a smile on my face, is so self-rewarding and stands testimony to myself that I could not have chosen any other profession. Rukshan Vakil

Teaching children is empowering fun, brings a sense of fulfillment.Teaching children with learning disabilities definitely taught me how to turn scars into stars.Being a teacher I would say definitely  it has taught me to see ‘light’ at the end of a dark tunnel. A ‘Creative’ never ending learning experience.

My love for kids and passion for yoga made me choose this profession. I wish to revive and spread the ancient Indian practice of yoga amongst children of all age groups i.e. toddlers to teens.

I do love reading! Here some of the real reasons I want to become a librarian, because it is a a learning progression and I enjoy research, because I get to work with interesting teachers, because I enjoy the world of ideas. All I can say is that I wish I had pursued librarianship much earlier in my life because I love this work.

Being associated with Sports is not just a ‘profession’ but a ‘passion’ for me. Playing games with friends or playing in school and college teams formed an integral part of my life. Hence, when the opportunity to work in the field of sports with students in schools came my way, I grabbed it with both hands. It is not a matter of chance or coincidence that I am in this field since over two decades, it’s a journey that I chose – one that has been rewarding and fulfilling, knowing sports is the key to developing a child’s physical and mental wellbeing.
