Fellow Sankirtana's leadership journey!

Every Fellow at Teach For India, craft their unique experience of Fellowship journey with their students! Please read the leadership experiences of our Year 2 Fellow, Sankirtana.

"My journey so far has been one filled with learnings of all kinds. Right from being immensely solution oriented, to enhancing the skill of execution, to vision casting, to planning, to balancing care and candor, every aspect of my life has undergone a revamp, in a meaningful way.

In the classrooms I teach, I have seen a holistic improvement in my children’s approach to studying as such. In Science especially, I have noticed a huge improvement in students taking up real life application projects of their own accord that led to increased investment in classes s as to implement heir learnings in real world situations.

The students conducted a Science seminar in the first term under the guidance of my then co-fellow and myself. Through this, we saw a lot of positive shifts In terms of student accountability, student leadership and ownership, apart from increased interest in Science as a subject.

During my first term, I conducted a school level seminar on Independence Day through which students spoke about the diversity in Indian culture, by highlighting different aspects of 9 different states in India. This included them conducting research, gathering information and dressing up in the traditional attire of that state. To top things off, the students conducted a quiz for all attendees to highlight the importance of the National Anthem. 

I think my most exciting moment last year has been the following: I had a student in my class who’d consistently seemed disinterested. At one point, due to her family circumstances, I visited her house and had a conversation with her. Post this, noticing that she had a teacher who cared, she had a tremendous improvement in Reading Comprehension. I hope such student impact is possible with the continuous support of everyone."
