Why teach when you have just researched?
Why would somebody get into teaching after doing a Ph.D., that too as a high school teacher? Well, this is surprising to most of the population, but being a survivor of a Ph.D. (almost all the Ph.D.'s would be able to feel this use of the word 'survivor' here) can surely defend this argument.
The moment I entered to deliver my first biology lesson, I started bombarding the kid with technical terms. Soon, I realized that these words were more of a tongue-twisting tool for them. For me, it was a struggle and I was shocked as to how people did not know common nouns in biology such as Lactobacillus! It took me a week to digest, analyze, and understand the real need of these students. Later, the kids realized that this lady is not going to stop using these terms, so the poor souls decided to incorporate this vocabulary into their lives to make mine easier!
A break during a trek and some learning
On one of our weekly 2 hour treks we took refuge from the rain in a farm shelter while eating our breakfast (we wouldn't want to dilute rain water with food ...slurp). Imagine 40 young adults and 3 adult facilitators eating breakfast together in a cosy shelter!
