Hi, my name is Purvi. For the past ten years I have been part of the IB PYP educator and being in this diverse community shaped me to become a team player, open minded person, life long learner and professional educator.

As a classroom teacher, I am responsible for educational needs of students by implementing a rigorous programme, care for daily life of students’ welfare and being an active/supportive team member for my colleague. During these teaching years, I applied a variety of teaching methods, utilizing IT, differentiated learning and assessment and strive for a safe and supportive learning environment to happen in my class.

Communicate and develop healthy working relationship with all parents is also important to keep them updated about the progress and support given for the students to be successful in and outside school. 

I do like my job because I believe teaching touch tomorrow. My teaching experiences in International Schools have instilled me with a high regard for excellence and achievement, which I strive to maintain daily in both my personal and professional activities. Currently I am in the process of applying as IB Workshop Leader and Visiting Team Member hoping that I could contribute positively in IB World Community. 

This year I go out of my comfort zone and try a new role in teaching English as an additional language as well as supporting the unit of inquiry in an IB School located in Astana, Kazakhstan.

IBEN Personal Motivation 

A room to grow

My journey as a teacher started when Indonesia Education University accepted me as an undergraduate in 1997. After graduated I started to teach in an IB school. To be part of a wonderful IB School called Global Jaya School in Jakarta, Indonesia is a privilege for me. I learned a lot here; grow professionally by attending various and high-quality professional developments, professional reading groups and implemented various teaching and learning strategies collaboratively with my team in the classroom.


Last year I took the risk to go out of my comfort zone and teach/live as a foreigner in Astana, Kazakhstan. I was a bit scared at the beginning but I am so grateful surrounded by kind and supportive colleagues here at an International School of Astana. They have made the adaptation period convenient and manageable. I believe that being an open-minded person and a supportive team member are great attributes to have as compassionate educators that involve in a local and wider community.


This year I am applying as IB Workshop Leader because I believe taking on more responsibility is a good way for me to grow both personally and professionally. One of my passions as an educator is to keep myself educated and never stop learning. I believe being part of IBEN will help me a lot to grow as a compassionate educator because I will get opportunities to meet and build the network with teachers in different parts of the world and learned something from each other. This quote by Nelson Mandela always inspires me as an educator “Education is the most powerful weapon, which you can use to change the world.”
