A video showing a day in the life of a primary school teacher has left people amazed. The man, who goes by Englishwalesir on Instagram, shared the video. Alongside, he added a descriptive caption explaining what it entails to be a teacher.
“It’s not easy being a primary teacher, but it’s not difficult too. The key to doing many things in the classroom starts with one simple thing – ‘be in your classroom’. If you wish to strengthen your bond with kids, start taking your lunch with them. I do it every day and every day I sit with a new kid, talk to him about so many things while taking our meals,” he wrote.
“There’s a constant stress that few of my kids aren’t learning much from the textbooks, focus on them. Every day, dedicate yourself to one of those kids and yes it’s not a one-day or one-week thing. It will take time. Trust the process. Be kind, keep yourself in their shoes,” he added.
The video that he shared captures his interactions with the students. Be it teaching them, encouraging them or celebrating their birthdays, the video gives a glimpse into the life of this teacher.
