Tech Task # 1 Who am I??
Hello Everyone !
My name is Nidhi Aggarwal and my beginning as a legally recognized individual occurred on September 13, 1984 at Chandigarh (India). I have done Masters in Biochemistry and Bachelors in Education. I am simple, soft spoken, caring and always curious to learn new things. I love listening music, watching movies, reading and cooking.
In our country, On Teacher’s Day, high grade students were given opportunity to become teachers for elementary class students for that day. The real teachers visited every class and examined the students (acting as teachers) and gave “best teacher” award to one student. You know what, it was ME at that time who got the prize and I was feeling myself on the top of the world. Since that day I became passionate about teaching.
After completing my degree, I started working as Chemistry lecturer for Grade 11 and Grade 12. I taught for two years, it was such an amazing experience and I cannot wait to continue my life changing career. One most important thing which I learn while teaching is that we learn best when we have love for something.
A new phase of my life begins when I got married in October 2008. My husband got his PR of Canada and I came to Canada, directly to Regina in March 2011. On one side of my heart I was excited as I am living with my husband after 10 months and on the other hand I was depressed as I left all my family members back in India.
It was very difficult to cope with different culture as well as climate. I started part-time job in Regina and get aware of this new place. Now I have made many friends and get settled up here well with time. This place seems lucky for us as we are blessed with cute little boy, Rishaan, in March 2012. He makes our lives complete in every sense.
Right now, I am helping my son by telling how to clap your hands, crawl, sit, stand etc. This is another way of teaching and also quite interesting one. In the mean time, I applied for teaching licence and came to know that I have to take certain classes in order to meet the requirements. Finally, I got chance to study in University of Regina and got the opportunity to learn more in new culture as well as new environment. I have never done any online course before, this is for the first time I am doing this and also very excited to learn how to use technology in making teaching more effective and interesting.
