Principal, Roorkee
"The value of education is not the learning of many facts but the training of the mind to think." - Albert Einstein. Dear students, It is my conviction that my role as an educator is to guide and nurture the next generation to establish skills to achieve health, respect, prosperity and fulfillment. I am passionate about students being empowered to succeed. As a Principal, I use all tools available to inspire staff, students and community to work together to promote students’ achievement and well-being. I am an avid supporter of effective and innovative professional development that encourages teachers and principals to be reflective and to continuously examine our practice to provide quality teaching and learning for each student. My role as Principal is to keep up with latest trends and research and leave no stone unturned to be an active partner in the schools professional development. The ability to be innovative and creative is important to me. I enjoy being challenged and inspired by the people around me. I aim to enthuse and challenge staff and students to also be inventive and imaginative in their learning and day to day crunch times. I herald the belief that having quality, inspirational and passionate teachers is essential to a schools success. To borrow John Hatties words; "teachers should build classroom climates where errors are welcome, student engagement is the norm, questioning is high and students gain reputations as effective learners." When the blue-ribbon teaching-learning prevails in the classroom then every student pulls a rabbit out of his/her hat. I appreciate celebrating successes and acknowledge hard work of staff, students and community and believe that this is one of the fundamental contributors & characteristic tinge to a happy school environment. All staff, students and community should feel valued and appreciated at school. Community engagement and involvement in the school is important to me as Principal. I regularly consult with my community as part of school’s self-review and encourage community engagement in the curriculum and learning programmes. Regards Principal
