Founder , S.N. Educational Consultants We transform schools-- Making it a " Happy Place"
Has a rich 26+ Years of experience in Education, and has been associated with various names like; VIBGYOR Group, G.D. Goenka Public School, the Heritage School, Excelsior American School and GEMS Education.
Her comprehensive knowledge of running a school has helped in building quality institutes like Heritage School, Gurgaon, Excelsior American School and GEMS International School, which last for an eternity. Her last assignment was with VIBGYOR Group as Sr VP, Head Academics.
Her philosophy can be summed up in the following lines, ‘Often times, in our search for the perfect moment of absolute learning, we fail to see the beauty of the stumbling blocks, the little steps that falter and fall backwards and the unsure moments of ‘I can’t do it’. Education has sadly become a race towards perfection and the highest possible grades. It is as much about the moral grain of the being, the accountability and responsibility towards oneself and towards the society, about being the liberal citizen of the world and moving with the times as it is about grades. I would like to see all my students as achievers and if they imbibe knowledge rather than acquire it, spare a thought for the have nots in their journey towards success, think that peace, harmony, giving back to society and care for the Mother Earth are not duties delegated to some specialists but to them, I will feel that I have been successful in playing my part in educating them in the real sense of the term’.
