HundrED Ambassador and Global Educator

I have enjoyed 20 years of teaching and learning as an educator. From the journey as a teacher to school leader, I got the opportunity to attend a variety of professional development courses that transformed me from local to the global educator. Currently, I am working at the Early Learning Centre in Ontario, Canada. I am a Montessorian from AMI, certified as primary years teacher from International Baccalaureate and an Ontario Certified Teacher from OCT. I look forward to collaborating, learning and sharing with the HundrED community.

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

HundrED has inspired me the way it has enhanced teaching and learning globally. Through this platform, I want to expand my knowledge and would like to collaborate with global educators.

How can education support students to flourish?

Education prepares students for life by instilling values and preparing them to face the challenges of the world. It also promotes positive student engagement and connects them with the local and global community. Education is a tool to empower students so that they can become life- long learners and responsible citizens.

What role does innovation play in education change?

Innovation is related to creativity in the sense that it helps the learners to develop their problem-solving and creative skills. We need creative minds to solve the challenges of the continuously changing world. Innovation in education promotes empathy in learners, they take ownership of the society and work for its well-being.
