Generally students are known through their teachers. But at Sharda it was first time that any university recognized the teachers through their students. It was the time to show gratitude to the teachers who have never thought that they would be remembered and thanked by their students through their excellence and brilliance.
Sharda University Teacher’s Award is a concept initiated to bring together and recognize the teachers who have created a highly positive impact in the learning process, to be recognized through this initiative. For this purpose, nominations were invited from all existing students for their teachers who have made life changing contributions in their academic journey. The students were asked to nominate their 10th & 12th class teachers, and response was overwhelmed as approx 550 nominations were received .
Eventually all the nominations were analyzed by scrutinizing their CV’s. A Panel of three members from the University completed this process of selecting 24 teachers from all the nominations received based on their contribution to the Education Industry .On Saturday 18th of April in hospital conference room of Sharda University a two dozen of teachers were awarded. In this unique ceremony the key point was that teachers were acknowledged through their students.
Everybody was moved on seeing the meeting of students and teachers. Following the traditions this event was initiated by executive director of Sharda University Mr. Prashant Gupta. He spoke, “whenever we turn back and see, we remember the hands showering blessings to us. We also remember those scary eyes which were determined to guide us. We can’t forget our guiding teachers because of whom we were successful today”.
During this auspicious occasion, the Vice Chancellor of university said “knowledge is very important but to groom the entire generation and to spread wisdom is not easy task. One has to do sincere, honest efforts.”
Continuing the flow of event, Registrar of the University, Mr. Avais Ahmed said “I was never a teacher but was fortunate to spend time together with the teachers “While sharing his sentiments he also confessed, “Sometimes I’m jealous when students give beautiful cards to their Gurus”. No profession gives the feeling of pride as the teaching does”.
