“Being a kindergarten teacher is comforting, my students have little hands and big hearts. I’m proud to be a Kindergarten teacher!!

I have worked in the field of education for 10 years. I have been working with GIIS Bangalore for five years.

Working with young children means constant activity, interruptions, and lots of colour! I tailor lessons and activities to the needs of each unique student. I am always learning new research or better ways to do something. I am very blessed to be in a school that supports the importance of play at this age. 

The teaching approach that I follow are hands-on approach and the Play way teaching methods that encourage students to learn by doing and by example. 

From teaching Rhymes to preparing the students for Inter-school competitions, training them for cultural events, I always try my best to create an impact in their life.

The most important role for a teacher, I believe, is to introduce children at early ages to a wealth of wonderful learning opportunities, So they are inspired to think about who they can be and what they can do for the rest of their lives.
