Science Teacher Coming together is a beginning, staying together is process, & working together is success.

 A compassionate, fun loving, honest,  person who loves to explore new places & food. Love to interact with like minded people from earth's crust to the infinite galaxy everything excites me. Always trying to find out why i am here? what am i capable of? My life revolves around my friends, family & work.

Why do you want to be a part of the HundrED Community?

i want that my class, my teachings, the questions raised by my kids should not end by 9-3 school timing. This process of learning & guiding should be a continuous process which keeps me & my students excited for what coming up next. Hence i want to be a part of the HundrED Community which has global outreach & exposure.

How can education support students to flourish?

I believe education gives choices & direction to the magical dreams kids have in their minds. Its a place where they can get support from their peers, guidance from teachers to accomplish what they desire. It is a tool which can propel a child to become a global citizen of change.

What role does innovation play in education change?

Innovation is a necessity with changing times around us. With pandemic still looming over us teachers have innovated their homes into mini classrooms, new teaching learning methodologies etc. So these are just mini steps in bringing a revolution in education, which is no more confined to four walls of the school. Innovation in science is a break through that is what keeps bringing people closer.

Three HundrED innovations you love. (and Why?)

1. Yoga.Ed Myself being a yogini(student) can first hand relate to the positive impact of exercise/yoga for wellness of mind & body. 2. Scientix Europe-wide collaboration among STEM teachers, education researchers gives young kids the inspiration & much needed guidance. I feel India also needs a collab in STEM. 3.
