To begin with teaching children is something i really enjoyed doing right from when i was much younger, with MAD this ambition has not only become a reality but in turn i realise that I'm able to reach out to so many kids and help them acquire a skill that can easily become their bridge to the global scenario. Anyway that's about how i joined and reacted to the initiative. When i actually started going to teach i found it hard, it was tough trying to make 50 highly energetic minds concentrate on something that obviously seemed less interesting than the next person's new sharpner. I was thoroughly exhausted on the first day and pleased at the same time because the kids responded to us really warmly, it seemed like the wanted to learn and that was what i wanted to catch on as an attitude for the class to function. As the classes proceeded things became easier, I knew what games to play in order to break the monotony or what wisecrack would ease an awkward student who was just inhibited to give an answer she knew. The kids too started absorbing well and three classes down the line we were on a roll, we had established an excellent mutual relationship wherein everyone would have fun and learn at the same time which is the priority at all times. Now even if i miss a class i think of all the kids and hope they're practicing and waiting for the next week as excitedly as i am. I hope i can continue the madness for a really long time. Cheers!
