Subhadeep Mazumder Teacher-in-Charge Pailan College of Education
Having a desire is not enough to change anything; it needs a decision to make a slight change but eventually it is the determination that can make the real change. I compliment you on your desire to be a teacher. I encourage your decision to enrol for teacher training programme. I am sure that I will get an opportunity to congratulate you when you are finally empowered with the skills and expertise to stride into a classroom as a teacher and shoulder the responsibility of shaping the future of our great nation.
When I address my students, I tell them not to go where the path may lead but to go inside where the road may lead and leave a trail. However, I must confess that I did not endorse this view when I began my career as a teacher. I gradually learned to believe in it since I joined Pailan Group of Institutions. This change in perspective has been caused by the principle that governs PGI- putting core values to practice.
During their time at Pailan College of Education, trainee teachers learn the significance of questioning the status quo and wrestling with the paradoxes of life. They endeavour to maintain their faith for themselves while becoming critical thinkers capable of evaluating evidence to inform their decisions. Overall, students master the requisite skills to be life-long learners, prepared to face a rapidly changing world.
A unique feature of the teachers and students of Pailan College of Education is that they are not satisfied with the average, or even good. They see the world a bit differently – and work to make things better. It is exciting to be at Pailan – being with students, faculty and alumni whose innovative spirit and thirst for knowledge continues to create what does not exist and improve the well-being of posterity.
