She is Indian by nation and has been living in KSA from 15 years. She is currently residing in Dammam with her husband and two boys. She was a student fond of science from childhood and always dreamt to be a doctor. Due to residential schooling and circumstances in the family she had to opt different streams and go for Bachelors in Arts. She always had a struggle with math as most of the children did during the time when math was mostly taught abstract. She always says – “I still remember the days when we used to address math as a Giant cobra because the math teacher always brought fears and tears with his typical traditional teaching.” Her struggles for learning math always helped her understand the needs for children’s learning. She always kept herself learning better teaching techniques and methods. Her struggles made her a passionate teacher who always tried to find better ways for teaching and learning practices. As a teacher, she always had a helping hand to her colleagues in collaborating and guiding them to improve instructions for better student learning outcomes. Her contributions led her to become the lead for teachers. Her continuous passion and interest in searching, learning, and helping others with better educational practices motivated her to accept a new journey in leadership. As one thinks about leadership – “instructing, managing, leading…..” isn’t what leadership is. It was a very big challenge to her in transforming people from a very traditional teaching culture to an interactive, student engaged learning culture.Her passion has been always for researching, seeking new methodologies which helped her making strategic plannings, and collaborate with her colleagues and teachers. Her objectives have always been improving teachers with their instructional practices, motivating them to adopt new methods and techniques to improve student performance both intellectually and behaviorally. Her contributions for child’s learning offer her immense satisfaction and great pleasure. Being in leadership taught her how to deal with tricky situations in life too. She believes in “Working hard to pursue your goals and keeping a positive attitude, honesty and integrity are the qualities that help you when you are required to maintain a level-head in times of success and failure”. Her experience and contributions rocket up her curiosity and passion for constant and continuous searchings on “Learnings in future”.
