The nationwide lockdown has brought about a complete transformation in many of our routine activities, education including. During this period, while online learning had become the new normal, some of our super educators have gone an extra mile to ensure that learning doesn’t stop for underprivileged children in the villages.
Sarita Yadav is working as a teacher in the Satya Bharti School, Meghnawas, Haryana. While she has been working from home, she has dedicated her days to ensuring that no child is left behind.
To begin with, Sarita made WhatsApp groups for Class I students to ensure that she in touch with all her students, and they can easily reach out to her, if need be. She conducted routine virtual classes for all the children. Those who weren’t reachable on smart phones were reached out to through phone calls. She also used these groups to check their home works. She also developed interactive Teaching-Learning Material for class I students for the subjects Hindi, English and Mathematics, to be circulated in the Mahendergarh cluster.
Sarita dedicatedly created around 20 lesson plans, 80 e-learning videos for students to refer to and around 600 audio, video and visual TLMs to facilitate students’ learning process. Not only did she help children stay in touch with the scholastics but also kept them informed about the upcoming online competitions across various platforms, encouraged them to participate and helped them in their registration processes as well.
To keep the parents of her students up-to-date about their child/children’s education, she constantly kept in touch with them and encouraged them to keep their children motivated during this challenging period. She also got in touch with parents of the children who haven’t been enrolled into schools yet to ensure that education reached all.
While Sarita made her dedicated effort to keep her students from losing touch with their education, she also kept herself updated to be able to deliver the best to the children. She partook in various e-learning platforms and received over 20 certificated for her progress. To enhance her technical knowledge, she attended multiple webinars and training sessions as well. More so, she participated in RMJ quiz competition and bagged the first prize.
Sarita has been a great example for the fact that nothing is impossible once you decide to take over success with determination and hard work.
