Read an inspiring tale of Payal Yagnik – A teacher and an Inspiration for many
9 November 2016
My mother always told me – “whatever happens, happens for the best”. Whenever I face any difficulties in my life, this line inspires me and gives me strength to keep moving on.
When I was at high school, I wanted to be a doctor. However, I had no idea about where my destiny will lead me. When I completed 12th, I wanted to study MBBS but due to some personal problems at that time I decided to stay back at home. I secured admission in B.SC course at nearby college in my city.
Even when I was studying B.SC, there was no single day when I didn’t think about my MBBS dream. These were the days when my mother’s lines “Whatever happens, happens for the best” gave me strength to work hard – and so I decided to put my heart and soul into the new path I selected. I decided that though I won’t be able to live my dream of being doctor, but I will help many others to fulfil their dreams. I decided to become a teacher. After completing my B.SC, I studied M.SC and B.ED.
Soon, I got the job as chemistry teacher in a private school. I started putting extra hours to help students with their studies. I developed many simple techniques for students to understand difficult concepts. I realized that few students study late at night, while few wake up early in the morning. I told all my students that I am available 24*7 for them. Whenever they have any doubt while studying they can either call me or drop me a message.
Through my hard work and dedication towards my work, I was promoted to the post of principal in few years. Today many of my students are doctors, engineers, entrepreneurs and top leaders in their field. Most of my students leave this city for higher studies but whenever they visit the city, they come over to meet me – this is what any teacher wants!
During these years I won “Best Teacher” award couple of times by prestigious associations like – Lions Club and Ma Foundation.
I always tell all of my students that “work hard in whatever field you are because whatever happens, happens for the best”. I am living all my dreams through my students.
Teachers are Nation Builders. Our country’s future depends on teachers.
Teachers like Payal Yagnik is an inspiration for everyone.
She is Women Of Courage.
