Counsellor, Guide, Mother: Meet our GPS Teacher and Parent, Latha
Hello and welcome to the GPS blog. I’m Latha - a teacher, parent, coordinator and acting principal at GPS. I am an adventure seeker, reader, and a fun-loving person. Fueled by my passion for teaching, I joined GPS in 2012. I continue to strive to redefine what it means to be a parent and teacher at a great school like GPS.
12 years ago, I wondered and was delighted by the interesting, inspiring attitude and positive behavior of my 4 year old little son who had recently joined the kindergarten class at a new school named GPS. It made me understand that a good school is one which imparts knowledge with real-world applications, and one that can shape a child in the right way. This spark inspired me to join the GPS community and transform myself from a GPS parent to a GPS teacher. Since then, my journey at GPS has shaped, molded and motivated me in many amazing ways.
“Being a teacher at GPS is different from being a teacher in any other school. Here, you become the counselor, guide, mother, father and everything to a small soul who comes to you every morning with hope in their eyes.”
As a GPS parent, I’m proud and happy to see my children grow as good human beings with excellent knowledge, creativity and great exposure to global awareness. As a mother, I appreciate the experiential learning method which plays an important part in shaping their future. As a teacher, I enjoy being with my 4th graders. Being a teacher at GPS is different from being a teacher in any other school. Here, you become the counselor, guide, mother, father and everything to a small soul who comes to you every morning with hope in their eyes. I strongly believe I am making a difference in a child’s life, which in turn helps the family and the community as a whole.
Knowing the background and the standard of living of the children, watching them grow in their lives, seeing them blooming - these all give me whole-hearted satisfaction and immense pleasure to be a part of this great school which we simply call “heaven.”
