Yamini Verma and the heart of a mother

Yamini Verma isn’t just a teacher. Or should we say, she is all that we can imagine the best teacher to be!

“Yoga is the reason why I wake up at 5 every morning. It can make a difference in the lives of my students. It has been scientifically proven that Pranayam helps improve learning,” says the Ms. Yamini who also won the first place in the Pinkathon Marathon in her region this year.

“I want to give my students all my time and efforts. That’s what a mother does.” she says.
She has also been teaching Maths, English and Science to 6th, 7th and 8th standard students for the last 13 years.
Yamini is a fighter. This was evident when her student, Ujma Bhano, was under pressure from her parents to get her married at a young age. Yamini intervened and convinced her parents not to force her into a marriage, instead invest time in her education. Ujma went on to win district-level, state-level and finally national-level prize as well as the Science Inspire Award for making a hand-made air conditioner.

“Judge the right qualities in every student and see what wonders are possible!” Says Yamini with passion. We hope to meet more such teachers along the journey of Humans of Indian Schools.
