Teacher cleans plates at dosa stall so that his student can prepare for his Maths exam

Preparing students for success and enabling them to realise their full potential is the goal of every teacher. Coming across teachers, who really take the time out and go out of their way to help their students is indeed a rare sight today. However, there are a few exceptional ones who have made a difference in the lives of their students and Satyam Mishra from ‘Teach For India’ is one of those.

In March this year, one of Satyam’s students Awaze Shaikh called him and said that his father wasn’t keeping well. Awaze’s father owned a dosa stall and he, along with his brother Huzefa had to run the stall in their father’s absence. The helper at the stall was also on leave and Awaze who had worked every single day at the stall needed some time off as he had to prepare for his Maharastra SSC Board, math exam which was on the next day!

Satyam simply couldn’t bear to see his student in such a helpless state and immediately rushed to the stall. On reaching the dosa stall, Satyam saw that Awaze was particularly tensed as the stall had five more hours to go before closing at 11 p.m. and had just a few hours to prepare for the exam tomorrow. Satyam quickly discussed with Awaze and his brother as to what could be done and how he could make himself useful.

After a few minutes chat it was decided that they cancel the parcel system for the day as that would be confusing for Satyam. Huzefa started making the dosas and Satyam helped in serving the dosas and cleaning the plates. Relieved of his job, Awaze left straight away to prepare for the subject that he was best at.

Awaze came through with flying colours, scoring 87/100 in Math. Students who score more than 85 per cent in five of the total six subjects are awarded Rs 50,000 by the Maharashtra government. India needs more teachers like Satyam, who influence the lives of their students in a big way and make them take a serious and disciplined approach towards their goals in life.
