School has started and there is a new fantasy for the girls..
To have me as their class teacher. Every day, they come up with a new ‘plan’ to get me into their school.
So, today, while Ananya was at her best presenting her case to me, to get ‘admission’ into their school as a teacher, I tried to explain to her that I wasn’t really qualified to be a teacher…
Ananya: Amma, Be my class teacher ma…you will get to tell stories all day!
Me: What I have studied will not help me become a teacher.
Ananya: You have not even studied first grade?
