I am an engineering graduate in Computer technology and I worked as a software developer When I was researching about the education system for a child I found Maria Montessori method. She says education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not accurate by a listening to words but by experiences in the environment itself.Then I decided to take primary training in IMTC and I realized that any unnecessary help gives to a child is a hindrance to development and it changes my perspective of the child then I stepped into Kalpavrikshalaya Montessori School and felt it to be spiritual and I am here to facilitate the child’s development by nurturing the inner self.
I am an MCA graduate from Madurai Kamaraj University. Worked as a search engine analyst in an IT company and as a teacher for four in few schools at Madurai. According to me, education is a basic need of every humans’ life. Every child is unique in her/his own way. When we pay attention to their imaginations and their creations we can help them in their development in a better way. Education is not only for gaining knowledge, it’s for life and its all about life.
