Government schools are struggling hard to promote quality education. Improper infrastructure, disinterested teachers, lack of toilet facilities, and lack of playgrounds are some of the challenges faced by the government in improving education. Usually, the primary schools in the states have a bad image. Parents don’t want to send their children to these schools. But a retired teacher from Shahjahanpur decided that he wants to change this image. Even after retirement, his passion for teaching and education had not waned. He has set an example for people in his state by teaching children, without being paid.

Shri Krishna Sharma, a 76-year-old teacher, teaches kids in Government Junior High School in Kant Block, Shahjahanpur, Uttar Pradesh. He retired as a teacher from the same school. Even after retirement, he continued to teach even though he was not being paid for his services. Following his footsteps, many other teachers also have come back from retirement to impart education. The Education Department of the state plans to honour him in any future.

Sharma lives 8 km away from the school in Mohanpur village. He is not a permanent employee and nor does he get any remuneration. It is indeed uplifting news to know that he has been teaching kids for 22 years without being paid for it, as reported by The Patrika.

He was posted in the same school in May 1954 as a teacher in Primary Education Department. He became attached to the children. The love he received at his retirement ceremony from the students and other teachers on 30 June 1995 encouraged him to continue as a teacher. This passion of Shri Krishna Sharma has also inspired the students to come daily to school. He teaches English language as he wants that his students to be equipped with all the communication tools for the future.

Whether or not other teachers come to school, he never misses a day. Since he is not on the payroll, he does not have allotted classes. So, he teaches any class where the teacher is not present. The students too are very fond of him and look forward to his classes.

The Primary Education Department has planned to organise a ceremony to honour him. Shri Krishna Sharma is an epitome of passion and determination.

The Logical Indian thanks Shri Krishna Sharma for inspiring and changing the lives of generations of students.
