A teacher is one of the most underrated professions in India. But in a true sense, it is the teacher who plays a significant role in shaping a child’s future. Without a strong foundation, a child’s growth, both mentally and emotionally, gets affected.

Every teacher wants to provide the best facilities for their students, and this is exactly what Annapurna Mohan, a government teacher in Villupuram, wished for. But we are aware of the fact that government schools lack the adequate infrastructure as the students are plentiful.

Hence, Annapurna sold her jewelry to install a digital smart board system, new furniture, a new floor and even bought books worth Rs 5000 for her students.



With an interactive smartboard, colorful furniture and stacks of interesting books, the classroom doesn’t look like a government-aided place.

Not only this, Annapurna has struggled hard to build her students’ language skills so that her pupils can speak clear and crisp English.

According to The News Minute, Annapurna believes that such changes had a positive outcome,

I tried to create a good environment for English in my classroom. I conversed with my students in English from the beginning of the class till the end. In the beginning, some of them didn’t understand it, but in time, they began to respond.

She used phonetics to help the children with their pronunciation. Also, she helped them to write sentences with the phonetic alphabets so that students could grasp the language easily.



Annapurna started uploading the activities of her class on Facebook, which received huge appreciation. She says,

People from places like Canada and Singapore also started appreciating them, and even sent in a badminton racquet. It made me think that I have to do something for my students who deserve it.

As her teaching videos gained recognition, news channels started calling her for an interview. It was then the idea to transform her classroom struck her and within three days, she did it.



Speaking to a news channel, she said,

I decided to do it by myself because I did not want to burden anyone. Doing it myself also helped to get it done more efficiently, as I did not have to rely on anyone else.

A good teacher teaches from the heart, not from the book. Well done, Annapurna.
