I, Supriya Narula began my journey in teaching in Primary School, 2 decades ago, and have been working in a reputed residential IB school in India for the last 15 years. I have traversed the continuum of teaching and learning from being a single-subject specialist, to a Home Room Teacher, a Grade Level Coordinator, CIS Chair, and now a PYP Coordinator. I have set systems and innovated various processes in my previous school and led them through Evaluation processes.I firmly believe in the power of vision and mission as core drivers of school culture and in the development of successful learning organisations. Vision-led schools in which collaboration, reflection, and democratic decision-making are the norms are best equipped to meet the changing demands of the 21st Century.
I believe that children, when guided well, learn best in an environment of discovery, wonder, encouragement, and reflection. Given the right tools to understand and think about their learning, young people of all ages can be central agents in their own understanding and actions.
The development of knowledge and understanding of the world has to be coupled with compassion and an awareness of the individual’s roles and responsibilities within their communities and beyond. Desire to succeed should be balanced with humility and a pluralist attitude toward others’ ideas and cultures. As educators, it is our role to help students identify talents and generate passion as well as nurture the skills, aptitudes, and attitudes that are necessary for their future lives. We should also act as role models for students to look up to in our actions and interactions with one another, displaying a love of learning and a deep sense of humanity.
It is my pleasure and honor to be a part of KRMGS and I am looking forward to our next adventure, fulfilling experiences, and many accomplishments yet to come.
