Dr. Shantha Jayakumar has over 25 years of experience as an educator. She has postgraduate degree in English, Psychology, and Education, and a PhD in Sociology. Having taught in contexts ranging from primary school to the post graduate student level, she has a thorough understanding of the teacher’s role in education. Her educational philosophy has centered around three broad tenets – every child is unique and precious; schools must provide for the all-round development of children; and the child must remain at the centre of all educational activities. At Gedee Public School, she continues to create a positive learning environment and multiple learning experiences, for students to become confident and remain happy individuals who can excel in their chosen fields of endeavor.
In the current world that presents inﬁnitesimal possibilities, the challenge that schools face is in adapting their vision to the needs and promises of the 21st century, to prepare their young learners to fashion a life of purpose and sustenance for themselves. Amidst scenarios that are changing faster than ever, the role of a school has transcended that of merely imparting education, to ensuring the development of the child to an empowered individual; capable of assuming responsibility for themselves, the society, the country and the world at large. This is a mammoth task which can be realized only through an education system deeply rooted in sound values and principles, yet ﬂuid enough to absorb changes, and evolve to meet a future that is entirely unpredictable. With the right vision, systems and processes in place, the school becomes a magic portal that opens to a life of meaning, growth and abundant opportunities, leading to a just and fair society, and ultimately to a strong and progressive nation.
