Royal Global School, Guwahati

RGS is a school started its journey in April 2012. It is one of the progressive schools in northeastern India.

I joined the school as one of the founder teachers. It was really a mammoth task to start the ball rolling as well as it was an intense learning experience for me. Starting from the planning and procuring the instruments to plan the curriculum and framing the system; from clicking photographs for the school publication to design and print them. The experience in RGS shaped me as a professional I am today. Some of my initiatives in RGS are:

Delhi Public School Newtown, Kolkata

Delhi Public School Newtown is one of the front line schools in Kolkata. The academic and co-curricular performance of the school amongst the DPS society is also remarkable.

I worked in Delhi Public School, Newtown from April 2010 to March 2012 as the Western Music Teacher of the school. It was challenging to work in a school with a huge student strength. I introduced and integrated western classical music into the regular curriculum as well as in SUPW classes. I also facilitated the students to make a documentary on waste management that secured the first place in Inter-DPS Documentary competition.

April, 2010 to March 2012

Learnium School, Kolkata

Learnium School is a chain of schools run by a Turkish society named SIFTCAC. Though it follows CBSE curriculum the students have to learn the Turkish language as a mandatory subject. Learnium School was my first school. I joined the school in 2007 as a music teacher. The greatest thing I got in the school is the cross-cultural experience. The interaction with Turkish people, learning the basics of the language, learning Turkish music, tasting their food all helped me to grow as a human being, as a teacher and as a musician. I started learning Ebru, a particular art form of Turkey there. I used to teach Western and Turkish music in Learnium School.
