“Education is not preparation for life, education is life itself” –- John Dewey
A quote close to my heart lays the foundation for a system of life, education and illumination, that I envision as not only commendable but necessary as life itself. Education as a synonym for life then becomes an ever-evolving identity that must keep pace with the constant flow of change, innovation and invention that we as a society witness in today’s day and times. Keeping this in mind, I have always believed in the 360-degree theory of education spectrum. Education for me is thus an avenue for working on the pupil’s individuality and team building skills… skills that will enable them to prepare them to not only face the challenges and adversities of the world but also conquer them on their own terms. As I perceive it, value-based education that has life skills weaved into its very curriculum is the need of the hour. It is my strong belief that team efforts, the role of a teacher and a healthy parent-teacher relationship is the only path that leads towards a bright future full of opportunities and success for every child entrusted to our care. With a vision of introducing an education system that draws inspiration from our rich cultural heritage, three major factors i.e. atmosphere, child’s leader (teachers), and the exposure to a curriculum that is in complete sync with the Indian value-system, make such noble and worthy endeavours successful. The idea is to let the child explore their inner capabilities and pave their independent path towards success, a path illuminated by the sound values of an upright education system. Let us then work together towards raising ethical and happy children and send them out into the world as the flag bearers of a brighter tomorrow, citizens of the world and the pride of our nation.
Looking forward to a strong bond of trust, affection, love, and respect between parents and teachers. Let’s share the responsibility of nurturing the children together as one, for they are ours to love and train together, ours to spread this tag together.
