I am an techie academician. Recently as I was exploring a course and while I was talking with a bestie over phone, an idea struck me. She had a kid appearing for grade 12, who was bored at home and stressed because of exams getting cancelled, university admissions and all. On the otherhand, I will be teaching a new course and wanted to try it out to get prepared.So I offered the kid the course and to generate interest in the class, asked him to get few of his friends along. I taught online for about 8 weeks, online. I was very clear from begining that I do not expect any remuneration for the course. I knew most of the kids, right from the day when they were 5/6 year olds.The course was much welcomed by all and kept them busy with new projects every week. Now, I am done with course and one day my friend along with other mothers visited me and handed over an envelope, saying its for your birthday.We do present each other small gifts on occasions. But when I opened envelope after they left, it had Joy Alukkas gift voucher!! I didn't have any intention to accept expensive gift. What should I be doing next. Returning back may hurt her feelings. Others may also have contributed. They said 8 weeks is pretty long period and our kids are now good programners, thanks to your efforts. I just wanted a course well-developed with feedback from kids, so that my students would benefit. Nothing else. Should I give them some gifts as return? Or quietly accept it...but then somewhere I do not feel ok.
