My interest in education started when I was a teacher in a low-income private school, teaching 3rd and 4th grade students. There were many challenges faced during this journey, but at the end of everyday seeing my students smiling, just made my day. Following this, I decided to do my Masters in Education, specializing in school organisation, leadership and management. During this period, I got opportunity to travel to many parts of the country and learn the environment and structures of different educational institutions. These experiences helped me to develop my understanding of education as well as imbibe values.

At Dakshin, I work with the Environmental Education programme. The aims of the programme are threefold: a) to create relationships between learners and place – its history, culture, economy, literature, art and ecology – in formal and informal settings, b) develop knowledge of the learners in literacy and numeracy and c) improving capacity development of community teachers, in the communities of Wandoor, Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
