Key words to describe myself: Montessori Educator, Teacher Trainer, ICT-Pedagogy, Pro 21 Century Skills, Peace Education, SCL, PBL, Literature and Language Student forever and a GEEK (Global Education and E-Knowledge)

 I am a Montessori educator for ages 0- 6 years and have teaching experience with EY,  PY, Elementary and Lower Secondary Grades in private schools of Ontario, Canada and in South Asia in an ELL school. I have been a consistent volunteer for Ontario Public School Boards namely York Region and Waterloo Region District School Boards especially for Social Media Management and Reading programs for struggling and emergent readers. I am a Marketing & Communications Specialist with experience in desktop publishing, social media management and online learning development. I am a staunch navigator of educational debates and policies, edu-philosophies, curriculums and school development issues in public and private educational systems. My goal is to motivate and coach parents, teachers and administrators/policy overseers to integrate holistic values to current forms of schooling. My current wish to motivated teachers generate their own curriculum according to the natural inclination, talents & interests of the learners in their class.
