I am Bhupal Singh Thakuri from Nepal. I am a young, dynamic, energetic and innovative teacher and leader. I was born on 14th April 1988 in Simta Rural Municipality 3 Surkhet. I started my schooling from Nepal Rastriya Secondary School, Lapu and completed SLC from Bhanu Secondary School Bajedichaur in 2003 AD. My college life is started from Surkhet Campus Education, affiliated campus of Tribhuvan University, Nepal. I completed my master's degree on English in 2012. I passed master's degree on International Relations and Diplomacy in 2017 AD from Mid-Western University Nepal.
During the period of college, I engaged in various institution as a teacher. From the very young age, my avid interest led to me social services. I raised the voice against discrimination and social issues. That’s why I established a local organization named Maula Yuba Club with my colleagues. I elected as Chairman in 2010 AD. In this period, I participated various local and national training. I worked as coordinator of Literacy campaign in Gumi and Ghumkhahare VDC of Surkhet in 2013. I was appointed a trainer by Woman Development Training Center Surkhet in 2015. Then I gave training in many local and remote areas of Surkhet district. Through the organization we, the team of our organization, campaigned against the social, racial, language, economic, gender discrimination in remote areas. We empowered the women, disadvantages groups, illiterate and disability group.
After completed my graduation I joined as a part time Lecture in Surkhet Campus Education. In the journey of my career I entered at Bhanu Secondary school as an English teacher in 2016 AD. Now I am teaching at Shree Nepal Rastriya Secondary School Sahukhola which is situated at Simta Rural Municipality 8 Sahukhola Surkhet district, Karnali province, Nepal. It was established in 1962AD (2018 BS) and upgraded of class ten in 2021 AD. Our Principal is Mr. Ramesh Singh Thakuri who is experienced more than 30 years in teaching and administration.
Our school has its beautiful and healthy environment surrounded by green forest that foster the learners in learning. It is fully child friendly learning environment. Our school is managed by experienced and qualified teachers' team. We are committed for the quality education, skilled 21st century skills to the students. It is believed that all round development is not possible through cognitive knowledge so we focus on several extra-curricular activities. All round development of personality is our aim to be good citizen of the nation.
My passion for education has led me and my students to achieve remarkable success in various competitions. My students and I have garnered numerous awards in local and national level. In 2019, I selected a topper in national wise lesson competition organized by British Council. I was awarded a laptop. The lesson was recorded in my classroom. The facilitators of British Council have been using the video as a resource in several trainings. My efforts, contribution and dedication helped me to award "Best Teacher of the Year 2022" by PP Prasai Foundation Nepal. I have received and attended several trainings and workshops related to professional development, research, counselling, social awreness etc. I have also facilitated to the teachers, students, guardians and other groups of society related to the topic.
As teacher or leader, we are not just disseminations of knowledge to the students we facilitate them to develop soft skills as well as hard skills and change agents of the society. They are responsible for creating environment for creation, critical thinking, problem solving and innovative ideas in students. In today's world we face complex global issues such as climate change, public health crisis, resource scarcity, terrorism, cybercrime. Through the school we can equip upcoming generations with the tools to address these issues ahead.
My heart fills with joys and happiness to get this prestigious award "Asia's Best Teacher of the year Award" from the Asia Awards. I wish to thank the judges and officials of Asia Awards for selecting me this prestigious awards. This title, begged by Asia Awards 2023 powered by RULA Awards, world Research Congress, recognizes myself from remarkable journey as an innovative teacher and leader. Thanks to Asia Awards, world Research Congress and United Research Council for this beautiful award.
Finally, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to all those who have supported me on this journey especially my family members, staffs, colleagues, students, who believed my vision and encouraged my growth as a teacher or leader.
