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

To connect with larger community of changemakers and like-minded educators. I am passionate about collaborative and inclusive learning based on empathy and tolerance. I am looking forward to learn from a global education community to be able to design more effective experiences for my students. My mission is to be  able to create a social impact through education.

How can education support students to flourish?

In my opinion education should not just concentrate on creating economically independent individuals. We need to help students understand their strengths and weaknesses and in the process help them identify what they are passionate about. The world needs peace, empathy and tolerance and this is only possible if our education system believes in each and every child and make them feel that they belong, that they matter.
