School Director's Profile
Ms. Sonya Ghandy Mehta
Ms. Sonya Ghandy Mehta, is a Graduate in Psychology and Education and has a Post Graduate Degree in Education from the University of San Diego, USA. She completed her Schooling from The Lawrence School, Sanawar, India.
Ms. Mehta believes that she was born to be a Teacher. She joined teaching at the age of 21 and her 30 years of teaching and administrative experience has spanned over Special Education, setting-up Vocational Training Courses and Mainstream Education in ISC, IB and IGCSE Curriculums. Her professional career started in Jamshedpur as a teacher to Young Adults with Special Needs in 1991.
Her strong belief about education is that it cannot be limited to the classroom and textbooks. In our ever changing world, it is crucial for education to constantly reinvent itself. What was relevant even 5 years ago might not be so today.
Each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating environment in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. Her desire as an educator is to prepare students for life in an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas.
There are three aspects in education that she believes are essential:
- Relevancy & Application - education must address the problems of today. Bringing real life issues into the classroom to make learning more applicable.
- Law of Expectation - the more you expect from a child, the more they will rise to meet the challenge.
- Promoting Respect - this encompasses respect not only for people around us, but also for the environment and inanimate objects.
