Gradually in no time it was observed that I could successfully raise their love for society, their country and various other graphs of Social Studies. After working as a teacher for almost 5 years, a new feather of being a Grade School Co-ordinator at NLK Academy was added to the cap. It gave a new perspective to my personality as now not only students but my teachers were also my responsibility. Yes, I proudly say that I find myself a better version of me now.
