I moved from a corporate job to teaching profession at Vega. Working with learners here taught me to be lot more patient. I learnt to be a good co-worker because of a collaborative way of working at Vega, respecting different perspectives resulting in more harmony and respect in all my relationships.
Every day is a new day at Vega. I can explore and try out new things for my learners every single day at Vega. It has given me wings to fly the way I want to.
As a child I used to be very scared of my teachers. This prevented me from giving my best in my studies. After joining Vega, I pledged to be a teacher who would care for each learner with love and empathy. I am glad Vega gave me this opportunity to be like this every single day.
When my son started attending school, I understood there is something wrong with education world and parenting styles. I learnt new mindsets and parenting styles, respecting the uniqueness of each child. I wanted to teach this to others too. That's how I came into teaching. My personal values resonate so well with Vega and is giving me an opportunity to bring about this shift in the mindset in parents and learners which I struggled through earlier. This leaves me with an immense sense of fulfilment and joy.
My thinking about education world has changed after joining Vega. It has changed the way I talk to my own child, to other children also. Vega's learner centric approach enabled me to appreciate the fact that children don't judge and label others. Adults do. Vega kindled my aspiration to research on easy ways about how children learn, how to design age appropriate, learner specific learning strategies. It's an amazing world to explore.
