â€œI teach in school where students study State Board curriculum,so I had to work a little harder. In theory I
scored 64 marks out of 100. Then I came in top 25 science teachers in India. This result declared around Diwali. In November, we were to upload our profile then I came in top 10. Then we had to do our PPT presentation before the jury. I prepared 26 slides and put before jury. They put several questions those included everything from my interest in teaching to my activities. My knowledge in Science, too, was tested. The jury members liked my passion for teaching. I told them I shall go to higher post but will not stop giving classes to my students who wait for me.

position, my happiness knew no bounds,â€ narrat-
