Summary

With a vision to bring a shift in the educational system of the present times, in my 34 years of experience, I have worked in global educational organizations and set exemplary standards of management with execution of innovative and unique ideas.

I have conceptualized and created Preschool chains and Senior Secondary Schools (K 12) with remarkable discriminators and innovative curriculum. I am well versed with IB Curriculum and International teaching strategies. I have been a pioneer in spreading the Montessori Method to a large extent in the NCR of Delhi and head Franchising strategies for India and abroad.

I have been able to spread quality teacher training and parenting programs all over India. I believe it is only through aware teachers and sensitive parents that the child will benefit the most and it is eventually possible for education to fulfill its purpose of creating complete and evolved children for the future world.

“Through the Teacher Training Programs, I aim to set high standard of curriculum execution by sensitizing teachers to be more insightful towards children. The objective is to guide them with regard to analyzing their subjects and simplifying lessons, so as to address each and every learner type in the classroom and to convert the adults’ attitude towards the child to that of acceptance as an individual, allowing children freedom of thought, creativity and expression”.
