AK: Which classes do you teach and the method that you use to teach them?
NG: I majorly teach the Pre Primary classes, Class V & VI. I always try to develop the imagination and concept of the lesson which I would start next among the students. In the junior classes, we have a camera called 'snappy' which shows pictures on the board and then I discuss with the students what is shown on the board. I always try to develop the curiosity and interest of the students in the chapter before I start it.

AK: What difference do you see in this school?
NG: This beautiful place is set up in a rural area but it is providing 'n' numbers of facilities for the overall development of rural students and I like it very much. Here, the environment is very silent, children have less distractions.
