Other Way Say About the
What is Life of KVS PGT Teacher ?
- You always need to be thorough with your subject as you will be teaching senior classes. You need to be prepared well in your topic as teaching them isn’t a kids play. So most of my time is spent studying which will gradually reduce as I gain more experience.
- You will enjoy the respect you get as a PGT. I take pride in being a PGT teacher.
- You will be getting some extra responsibilities like Olympiad in charge, CCA in charge etc.
- You have to work more as compared to TGTs or PRTs. There is always more pressure on teachers teaching 12th board students. So be prepared to take extra or remedial classes.
- You have to sacrifice your winter break as classes for 12th boards go on at that time. 🙁
- But overall you will love the experience. The attachment we have with students and the feeling they tell us they actually understand and love our teaching. They thank us for their success in exams. These feelings are priceless and worth every pain.
- And yes of course the salary at the end of every month will bring smile to your face (Best Part)
