I have been with Shanti Bhavan since 1999 and possess a total of 26 years of teaching experience in day and boarding schools in North and South India. As Vice Principal at Shanti Bhavan, I am responsible for scheduling classes, overseeing the residential care of children and staff, and general administration.
At Shanti Bhavan, I am responsible for teaching Hindi – a challenge for many South Indian children who are not familiar with the language – and General Knowledge, a subject taught in Indian schools about government leaders, important historical events, and other topical general information.
I completed a Master’s degree in History in 2011 and hold a Bachelor of Education in the teaching of English and Social Studies, as well as a Bachelor of Humanities from Jammu University, with a focus in History. I participated in academic competitions run by the United Schools Organization of India, a project of the United Nations, and by the National Social Service. Among my interests is Kho-Kho, an Indian sport featured in the Olympics, which I was passionate about while attending university.
