MY PASSIONATE JOURNEY
Introducing myself as a Passionate Engineer turned Compassionate Educator, I have been working as a Communication & Networking Engineer at TATA ELXSI, Bangalore for about Two Years and then I have resigned from my job and chose my passion as my profession. I believe in my life that Educating and Inspiring Young Children to evolve them into Good Sensible Global Citizens would be the highest honor and Service to the Nation. It’s the main reason I stood by my passion for being an Educator in spite of the desperate times and crises.
Obviously, my dad is a strong inspiration in my journey. He always inspires me with his 4 Master’s Degrees (MA (PA) & MA (PS), M.Com, M.Phil, M.Ed) with a Ph.D. Doctorate in the ’80s in Chittoor town. He has been serving in the Field of Education for about 4 Decades as a College Lecturer and Tutor. He wasn’t happy with it, until the establishment of a School in 1986 in the Name of “Little Rose”, which was one of the oldest and best parent-aided schools in Chittoor till date.
It’s a beautiful journey with curious minds and cheering faces. It always makes us proud and stays inspired being an Educator. It transforms not only the Child’s Journey but also ours, not just confined to the four boundaries of the School but spreading across the four corners of the society. Educators always Learn – unlearn – relearn the things and reinvent the ways by discovering the self in this amazing journey
