Profile: I joined Dakshin Foundation’s Environmental Education programme in April, 2018 as part of the Islands of Wisdom project, based in Wandoor, South Andaman. I started out as part of the teaching team at the Islands of Wisdom Learning Lab, conducting classes directly for students. Since 2019, I have been more of a teacher-trainer and project coordinator, working closely with Moumita Bhowmick and Aplonia Topno, our principal community teachers at the Learning Lab.

I am trained in the methods and practices of experiential education, based on the philosophy of John Dewey, in which reflection on experiences plays an important role in the process of learning. I am interested in place-based education and how place and language affect the relationship between the identity of stakeholders and the education system.
