Where do you teach?
I have taught in various local schools and nonprofit organizations like, Temple of Fine Arts and Friends of Museums in Singapore. Recently I taught Visual Arts as a fulltime art teacher at the Global Indian International School (GIIS), Queenstown Campus in Singapore.
GIIS is known for their learner-centric and skill-based teaching methodology. They offer holistic learning and personality development opportunities for students. They cater to Kindergarten, Primary, Secondary, Senior Secondary and Junior college students.
What is your teaching background?
I have always enjoyed learning new things and sharing that knowledge. I strongly believe that if we teach someone what we know, we actually understand the concept better.
I have been teaching Art for about 10 years. I have conducted various art workshops like fun with dots and lines, block printing, digital designing, and drawing and painting to children and adults.
Why did you become an educator?
I became an educator because I think I am a constant learner. I am very much intrigued by the ever changing education system and especially how knowledge is now easily accessible to anyone who is looking for it through the internet and other means. In Tamil there is a saying that means whatever you have learnt is only a handful and what you are yet to learn is a big ocean. I want to keep developing my knowledge and share with others so that I hit a balance somewhere in the big ocean.
