“The heart of education is the education of the heart”

Children in their formative years require more out of a teacher than others. I strive to build independence and confidence in my preschoolers so that they use their full potential. With the combination of the right skills, education and experience, child protection is myriad of different experiences. Sad, joyous, shocking and scary are just a few descriptors. Each day is different and each case calls for different skills. The wide scope of my job often brings out a wide array of emotions. There is no theory or approach that works in each situation. Each child & situation is different, and the best I can do is to be flexible.

कहते हैं ख़ुशी के लिए काम करोगे तो ख़ुशी नहीं मिलेगी ,लेकिन प्रसन्नचित्त होकर काम करोगे तो प्रसन्नता और सफलता दोनों ही मिलेंगीं क्योंकि खुशी अस्थायी भावना है और प्रसन्नता स्थायी भाव है।
अल्मा मातेर विद्यालय के विद्यार्थियों के सर्वांगीण विकास में हिंदी भाषा के माध्यम से प्रसन्नता भाव को बाँटना ही मैंने अपना स्वभाव बना लिया । विद्यालय के विद्यार्थी जीवन -शिखर पर पहुँचे, यही मेरी मनोकामना है।
