I, Sanjeewa Dharmawardhana graduated from University of Moratuwa as an Engineering graduate in (insert date). I joined MAS holdings as a management trainee for the department of research and development. It certainly drained my energy since it wasn’t challenging or creative! I decided to change my profession. Actually I decided to build a career for myself.
Teaching, is something I’m fascinated about and challenges me every single day. Most of all, it’s massively self-satisfying. Because my vision is to let students understand the beauty of physics. Because physics is all about living life, I want my students to learn how to face challenges in life and live fruitfully. My mission is to what an engineer cannot do. That is to produce more doctors and engineers. Not only that, accompanied with my vision, my greatest merit is when I see doctors and engineers growing up to be intellectual citizens with good capability of handling life.
Starting off with my own institute “SATHI House of Education” with only two students for my first ever theory batch on 14th February 2000. Crowds started to venture in when days passed. My institute couldn’t hold more than a hundred students and I had to search for other institutes to teach.
School teaching, was new to me but as I progressed I wanted to get that experience. After all you regret only the chances you didn’t take, so there I went and took my opportunity. Starting off at Ladies College, I was invited by many other schools from which I taught at St. Bridgets Convent, Lyceum International, Good Shepherd Convent and Musaeus College.
While the entire hullabaloo I completed my Masters in Physics and started more classes in Negombo and Gampaha. It was amazing to see how much students appreciated me helping them and raising their confidence to face exams and face life. I was a counsellor and a teacher in both forms and guided students in every possible way.
Leading English medium Physics teacher, being this person was a gift of all sorts that I forever cherish because of the amount of students I’m able to teach. As per now I have more than 500 students attending my classes and many Engineers and Doctors I produced.
Never giving up, on whatever the circumstances I am who I am because of how I started. Amidst many insults and discouragement I am here because I know who I am. My advice to you is never give up on you because you are the best thing that can ever happen to you!
