It’s all together a different kind of experience when you start teaching at your alma mater. Not everyone gets that opportunity, but only some. One such faculty is Dr S Robert Gnanamony, Retired English Faculty, Scott Christian College, who joined his alma mater in 1973 and served it for 32 years. Narrating his experience, he speaks to Meha Mathur about his observations during his tenure at the college.

Excerpts:

Careers360: Can you describe your experience in Scott Christian College?
Dr S Robert Gnanamony:
Scott Christian College was also my alma mater. As a faculty, I joined the college in 1973 and retired in 2005. It was a paradise for me. I enjoyed every moment of my stay there. I was so passionate about teaching and fond of several genres of literature--Canadian, Black, Indian and post-modern. The students that I got were also keen about the subject. It wasn’t as if they were learning out of force. It was a real joy to teach them.

Careers360: What are the challenges before the college?

Dr S Robert Gnanamony: One challenge is that we have a large number of students from rural areas and they do schooling in Tamil medium. They struggle with learning English. Especially, their spoken English is not fine.
