Sumedha Sodhi’s Journey
Started my journey as a teacher educator for middle school social science teacher in Ahlcon international school in Delhi and 13 years ago.
I was mentored and was given training and a lot of professional development happened in my personality at my school. due to which I was able to become a leader and I was able to take authority of many school projects and community outreach programs.
so these exposures and experiences which I got from my school director Mr. Ashok Kumar Pandey help me to establish myself as a good teacher in society and serve the stakeholders in a better way.
Today when I see myself it’s only because of these experiences which I got and the mentorship and training which my school gave me experiences that I received.
During the pandemic, I realize that it was needed to take the extra step to serve the students in a better way because it was all virtual and children need to be taught in a way that they attend virtual classes. I started learning technology myself.
I mastered various educational technology tools that’s why how I became an ambassador for so many educational tools. I’m a certified teacher coordinator for many of the tools which I am using. it helped me to connect better with my students.
so this made me release that I should talk about the various challenges and difficulties faced by the teachers during the pandemic time. That’s why I started the podcast in the name of Edurockstartalks podcasts.
In the last six months. I have launched around 11 episodes of my podcast. which are heard by the students, teachers and educators around the world.
That is how I Aspire to serve the community in a better way in the coming years.
I see myself as a leader in the educational world in the coming years

My favorite vacation where I was taken with my family was a coastal place that is Goa. I really enjoyed with my family going there because the climate was very good and the water. it was great fun so it was a very good vacation. I still remember it it was the most unforgettable experience
A favorite movie she watched last.
I do not watch movies a lot but one movie which I can relate to is patriotic. since I am a social science teacher.
so I believe that movie that helps in my teaching is partition 1947.
It really touched my heart and whenever I teach about Indian history to my children.
I always make sure to make them see some glimpses of that movie during my classroom even in the virtual environment.
I make sure to give them such kinds of projects where children engage themselves in watching such movies.
so they can relate and make real-life connections with what they watch while studying
