What does Gurukul want?
Here at Gurukul,
No child is weak because we believe that every child is SPECIAL, every child has his own strengths and he should be encouraged to pursue his passion.
As teachers, it is our responsibility to find the child's strengths and help him nurture them!
Teacher - Student Bridge
Creates a positive group atmosphere
Helps both students and the teacher relax
Breaks down social barriers
Energizes and motivates
Helps to ‘think outside the box’
Helps to get to know one another

Teacher - Student Bridge
As teachers we need to earn the respect from students. The students might not obey us just because we are teachers, but if we win the hearts of the students and get them to respect us, they will follow and obey us completely
Always enter the class with a smile, make the students enjoy, the class should have a fun loving atmosphere as it motivates and stimulates class interaction and better grasp on the topic being taught.
The duty of the teacher doesn't just end once the school gets over but also includes the bus travel. The school urges the teachers to be attentive during the journey and ensure the safety of students.
It is the record of the day to day activities. It not only informs what topics have been covered but also helps the teacher to plan what he/she will be teaching in the future. In the beginning of the year, the teacher may draw the blueprints of his early work. Schedules of the syllabus to be covered term wise and month wise to be prepared for the subject(s) taught.
