Not everyone is born with the same measure of creativity, but I am more than convinced that it is a skill which can be nurtured and sharpened, given the right triggers and exposure to stimulating environs & experiences.
An honest self-reflection and self-introspection can help us to reprogram our minds towards positive change and improvement. It helps us to reflect on our mistakes and gain perspective. It involves looking at our anxieties, errors and weaknesses and at the same time understanding our strengths and successes. Our school morning assemblies focus a lot on introspection and reflection as we feel it is an essential process to review why we said, did or thought of certain things and be on a constant look out to better ourselves.
As I look at the faces that gaze at me through the classroom window,meet my eye while walking down the school corridors or smilingly greet me in the morning, I am reminded of a poem – I am a child. And as I mull over the thoughts expressed in the poem,I cannot help but reflect on the dreams hopes and aspirations of every child and the expectations that they have from us, their teachers and mentors. The onus of bringing their dreams to fruition,does in large measure depend on us.

I hope this blog about interesting anecdotes and experiences in and outside the classroom will serve as a ‘bait’ to get you ‘hooked’. I hope it will also clearly bring to light, that more often than not, it is the teachers who learn from students, rather than the other way round.
