Greetings from Teach For India!
As we are ready to induct our sixth cohort of fellows in Teach For India for the next academic year, we bring to you a story from Government Primary School, Gandhinagar at Hyderabad.
Zuha Moin, after finishing her graduation in International Affairs from George Washington University decided to join Teach For India Fellowship in 2012. Her class of 28 children studying in 4th grade proudly call themselves Superkids. The school is located in Patigadda and Prakash Nagar area in Hyderabad. Most of their parents are from low-income communities in the vicinity and work as drivers, watchmen and construction workers, etc.
This is what Zuha has to say about her students who she has been teaching for the last two years,
"When I came into the classroom in July 2012, I envisioned that by the end of my two years as their teacher, my students would become global citizens. They would be aware of different cultures and would have an interest in current events. One project we did combined a chapter in our EVS textbook on houses and different cultures. Each group was given information on a type of house lived in by a group of people. They had to construct the house and then had to give a presentation on why the people live in this kind of a house.
