udavi school experience
Having come here to study the Integral Yoga, it has been a privilege to teach English/Reading, in the kindergarten section. Learning to teach by the way of Mothers suggestion of educating has been most challenging, both as a teachers as well in my own life of learning and study. What’s to say when one see’s the light go on these young minds and experience the sharing their joy and happiness of learning. Certainly pride has appeared when the light has shown so brightly on Udavi. Days like sports day and the different assemblies and open house where the parents have come or even a basketball game that they lost yet still tried so hard till the end of the game. Proud to be a teacher at Udavi-You bet!
There is one experience that stands out for me I would like to share. All my teaching has been done outside the classroom or in the assembly area. So many parents, teachers, workers, but especially younger students have been able to see me teach. I usually put the books out, displayed, and let the students choose which one they wish to read. The other day a 4 year old stopped and stood very close to us, really observing listening, then he saw the books laid out and his light went on with wonder. He left us and walked over to the books and very attentively began looking at every book, page by page, it was impossible not to feel his joy at this discovery. Even the books whose pictures were in black and white he took his time looking through. It really was a pleasure to be in the presence of his energy and happiness.
I’ll close with a special thanks to the teachers in this section who’s dedication to teaching is a pleasure to share and their love kindness shown to the students makes me feel that Mothers grace shines brightly on Udavi.
