J- Judgemental

‘Is she going to take our class?’

'I know. She’s so young. What does she know about us and our subjects?’

After the first class

‘She looked pretty nervous’

‘She fumbled too. I doubt she’ll stay here for long’

Exactly after 6 months at the Felicitation program.

‘Dude, my AIR’s credit goes to her’

‘Yeah! She’s the best teacher our institute has’

‘No wonder we were so wrong about her!’

‘Hey! It wasn’t our fault. She looked like us, yes, a bit more presentable and smart, but mostly like us! Anyone would confuse her for a student’

‘Only that she isn’t’

  1. Wow! I'm so glad to have read this story. Isn't it just marvelous that she evolved as a teacher and a great one at that.

  2. I've uttered those same words about the best math teacher in our classes. I used to tease him so much, because he looked new and totally inexperienced. But when he started teaching us, it was fab! I still remember the little tips and tricks he used to give us on how to solve math sums quickly!

    This post brought back beautiful memories, Geetika :)

    1. It happens with all of us I guess... New teacher and we're so ready to judge!


  3. Been there, done that. Am so glad now I try to slow down with the judging... :)
    Good J!

    1. Yes, and the part is it happens with everyone!


  5. Don't we all do just that: Judging especially by the cover! Glad the young lady proved them all wrong!
    Well brought out Geets!

  6. i am sure this is a true story :D When few of my batch mates joined as lecturers just after passing out, they looked so young ... but their maturity showed in their teaching :)

    1. Of course it is! And it happens with so many of us! :)


  7. Appearances can be deceptive! :D This has happened many times in many places. Judge people through their deeds and not anything else.

  8. I guess most of us have done that to our teachers who look our age.
    Enjoyed reading it :)

  9. I agree. We should not judge right away. Everyone deserves the chance to prove themselves. Great story with an important lesson.

  10. Ah this passing a judgement without waiting for people to prove themselves. Crazy.

  11. Is that your story? :) Good one Geetika! Students can get judgmental.

    1. Yes, it is :) How do you know ?
      Students are judgmental all the time!


  12. Aren't we all guilty of judging people at one point or the other?
    Wonderfully written Geetika.
    You've captured the sentiment beautifully :)

    1. At one point or at all the points?!
      Thanks :)


  13. Aah! We judge people so much and so often!


Thanks for dropping by :)
