S. M. Shetty International School in Powai has a brand new principal. Meet Mildred Lobo who has a Masters in Organic Chemistry from Goa University and Masters in Education from University of Mumbai besides attaining a Certificate in Teaching and Learning from the University of Cambridge.
Mildred Lobo is very passionate about making learning relevant for students and ensuring that every child feels special. She says, ‘'Having had the privilege of teaching from primary through higher secondary, I make it a point to remember that I teach children not subjects. My source of inspiration has been my parents; both teachers and my English teacher in school who showed me that learning can be informative, meaningful and fun. I continually draw inspiration from my students who bring a sense of purpose to my day.''
Continues Mildred, ‘'I want parents to know that the children are precious to us and we want to work in partnership with parents to raise our children to be good human beings. As principal, I envision the school as a happy place, where students feel cherished, where parents feel comfortable and where teachers are empowered to become collaborators and creative problem solvers in a nurturing environment."
Mildred leads the international School at Bunt Sangha as a mission to incorporate all stratas of society and reach out equally to all children.
