Old friends

Pawan was one of the first volunteers of Samagra. He left about 9 months ago to become a Physics lecturer in a local college. Can stammerers become a good lecturer? Pawan is a good example that it can be done- albeit with some hard work. He always prepares his lessons well in advance. He makes sure that students have understood him- by getting feedback in different ways from a cross section of class. And above all, by being patient and available. Once he confided that teaching young children at home, at times totally free, helped him to regain better control over his speech.
He still visits us and whenever he has time he coaches one of our kids- as above.
