During initial days of her career she was always clear about opening her own school where she can put her creative ideas into something of her own. Her dream come true in 2015 when she opened a branch of Maple Bear Canadian Pre School in sector 141 , Noida. In a short span of time the school had an alumni data base of 500+ students and a current strength of 150+. The school and teachers under her guidance have received many prestigious awards with 3 teachers being awarded as best performers by Maple Bear South Asia . The school was recently covered by Education Today magazine for their creativity and classroom management. The school was awarded as Top preschool in noida.

Share something from your Corporate Career

I started my career as a substitute primary teacher and within a short span of 2 months was promoted as a main teacher. Later in same school I taught students up to secondary level.

What was the inspiration for you start your own business ?

My parents are always my inspiration but it was my husband who gave wings to my dreams. He supported me in all my decisions. Leaving a well paid job to follow my dreams was his decision.

What have been some of your achievements in your professional life?

In a short duration of 4 plus years we’ve bagged many prestigious awards like India School Merit awards and Brainfeed. My school is ranked as number 2 preschool in Noida.

The difference you have made to others

I’ve taken 100 plus training sessions till date pan India. Teachers from all those schools are in touch and keep me posted about how they inculcate my ideas in their classrooms and how much children love doing them.

What do you want to be acknowledged for

I’m just following my passion. I’ve no idea if it should be acknowledged or not. 😉 but yes I want my school to be acknowledged for a school where teachers are putting their creativity on kids rather than beautifying only walls of a school.
