Samatha’s young 8 year old intern shares her experience.samathaadmin
It was an early morning; I got up at 6 am for my morning run with my mum. During my run my mom told me I will be joining a new class and it will be at 1:15 pm today.
I was so nervous the whole day, even in my school. The final hour came. My diver came around 1 to pick me up from home. So I got dressed and took my school bag.
My mum gave me my phone and made up a 4 call rule. It works like – one when I start from home, one when I reach the class, one when I leave the class and one when I reach home. If I miss one call then she would get really mad.
I got one book called JEDI ACADEMY, just to entertain me. After 30 min I reached SAMATHA
Suddenly I heard a loud bark, I was about to scream on top of my lungs! The dog was big! I refused to get out of the car until my teacher came out. When my teacher came out she held the dog and let me in. I met 2 teachers, miss Anita and miss Evelyn. Miss Anita took me in a room where I introduced myself. Miss Anita had short hair and a smile on her face. Miss Evelyn had a smile ear to ear and curly hair.
Well , soon I started coming every Wednesday and also started helping Miss Evelyn with her classes. I also started reading stories to Miss Evelyn’s students, Vaanya and Ashas. Ashas always got toys and Vaanya had a cute red bag.
Soon Miss Anita started calling me little intern. I noticed something different about students who go to SAMATHA, they communicate in a different way and not like we do. We just say – Hey how you, but the teachers over there say hi in a cheer full way so students know that they are happy.
The teachers have patience and grit more than anything.
I started to understand what SAMATHA does. SAMATHA helps children who need help in learning and learning in their own way. Not like us. Those children take time to learn.
Ashas , the student was very shy of me and took lots of time to get used to me. Vaanya on the other hand was focused on other things like sounds of the city or more.
What I learnt from SAMATHA was to have patience and grit and have passion for what I am doing. I learnt that not everyone is same , I learnt you can teach in multiple ways , I learnt there are no limitations in learning , I learnt we are all grateful to have teachers who work hard to teach us and ensure we learn.
Soon Christmas was around and SAMATHA was planning a party. Everyone came and there were lots of activities. Ashas was dressed as Santa and he looked so cute, Vaanya wore a white top and a red skirt and a gold chain. Miss Evelyn and Miss Anita wore head bands shaped like reindeer horns. Vaanya went to the play centre and played with her mom. Ashas and I went to make cards. I had a great time and saw all SAMATHA students.
I would love to continue with SAMATHA too so you can also help out. You can go there and learn everyone is not the same and everyone is equally gifted.
