"School is a building which has four walls with tomorrow inside". – Lon Watters

It gives me immense pleasure to share my work experience in Balsam Academy.
I got to work as a Middle Math Teacher, and it was one of the best experiences of my life. The twelve months in Balsam, is like twelve years. I have learnt a lot of new things, and today I find myself as a better person.
My first teaching experience in a CBSE school has taught me a lot about what it means to be a teacher and discover myself, as a future educator. I witnessed virtues such as perseverance, sincerity, truthfulness, tolerance and discipline in Balsam. I also learned that I did not have a good sense of time before and now I know how to manage time.
Balsam has transformed me as a competent candidate in the field of educating children. I am looking forward to resuming my journey at Balsam.

I feel like Balsam made me deeply understand this quote. I was fearful at my first year of service and became an inspiring math teacher with the continued support of my students, colleagues and management because I sensed that there is a family to fall back on and learn from.
I wish the team continued progress.
