Rashmi Mishra is Banking on good questions

“All it needed was a question bank!” says Rashmi Mishra, a Science teacher who teaches students of Primary School in Paharpur, Sarojini Nagar in Lucknow. A small change is big enough to make a big change, that is what she believes. As mother of 3 kids and a family in police force, teaching changed her life, forever.

So what did Rashmi do to deserve a story?

She created  a questions bank – not just for her own subject, but a written and documented collection of all the possible questions of all subjects, from the entire syllabus. Referring to a hundred sources wasn’t really a piece of cake! Now it is, thanks to her efforts.

How many of us do that?

“Other teachers borrow it from me. We have made a group of interested teachers who circulate it amongst themselves.”  Rashmi believes that if a teacher is well prepared for class, the students are compelled to be prepared as well. “It is a two-way process. It is give and take. Teaching is nothing if the student doesn’t absorb, digest, and apply the learning.”

“Teaching is not a mere profession for me, it is a noble job. Unlike most professions, teaching rewards you with mental peace and satisfaction”, says the teacher.

And guess what she brings home from work? Happiness.
