Z-Zeal


Print
It was just yesterday when I was thinking a word for Z, but the hectic day, the chores to be done before leaving for a getaway was constantly on mind. Also, yesterday was my last class at one of the batches I teach, so a lot had to be discussed before leaving. It was my first batch when I started teaching and a bit handy too in the beginning to tackle students who're all young adults. I started with a simpler subject then. Students too were not very happy when I joined as I started in the middle of the session, switching from a much senior 'err' experienced teacher to a junior 'err' inexperienced one (well, they didn't know about it though). So yeah, I got their delimma and the reason for a little irregularity in class. As the time was passing, there was a sort of bond that was developing between us which I never realised until now! 
The moment I use to enter the class and wish everyone, and a 'Thank you' before leaving, the curious eyes, the smiles, the number of examples and a few laughter that I shared with everyone filled everything with so much of positivity. I always use to get positive vibes in class and this encouraged me more to deliver the best lecture every day! 
So yesterday, I was winding up the class and say goodbye to everyone till a student gave the best compliment I have ever received in my life! She said, "Ma'am you are best teacher we have in the institute" and the whole class, "Yes Ma'am"..!  It was indeed exhilarating. I was more than pleased.. Overwhelmed actually!  I knew that my students loved me, but getting this compliment was beyond anything I could ever ask for! I was filled with immense zeal to do better for the coming batch. And I do realize that it won't be easy. New challenges would be there and I am all set.. waiting for them to come!

Few months earlier, I was so engrossed in finding work for myself and now I have successfully finished the first batch! Time does fly fast.
It made my day hectic and I loved every single bit of it. Lot of people asked me what was the need for me to work, or why do I waste so much of my time, or why run here and there when you can just relax and chill. Well, people who know me would understand what it means to me. And to those who came up unnecessary comments, I can never explain what it means to me, the feeling of contentment that I got yesterday was beyond everything and nobody could ever give me that in any form! 
It was that moment when I got the topic for today and it couldn't have been better than this! 
I cannot thank enough my husband enough who gave me this idea long back (to start teaching) and my family for their constant support. My mother in law, without whose support and co - operation nothing of it  would be possible. Post marriage, there are a lot more responsibilities, a lot more duties and things that require constant attention but my mom in law took care of every bit of it. She made sure I ate well before leaving for class, she made sure I get ample time to prepare for the class if I need, she made sure that I never ever get late for my work no matter who so ever was the guest in the house. The compliment what I got is truly hers and would never be possible without her constant support. Lastly, my mother who always got what I meant and was equally worried for me before this work. It's all coz of her faith where I am today and I owe everything to her.

I know, it’s quite a long post but it had to be.. it's all what I had in my heart and now is all out on my blog (that is why we all have blogs in the first place, don't we?)

Happy Reading

Cheers
