Alumni Sharing Session
Written by Mr. Farrel Gara
“It feels like coming home,” described Ms. Sarita Arora or Dollie, alumna of 2005 and resource speaker for this semester’s Alumni Sharing session. The Faculty of Education expressed delight and excitement to have her present on the topic “Classroom Management: Strategies for Effective Instruction”. Both students and Faculty said they appreciated her sharing of 16 years of personal experience as a teacher and currently as the Principal of Student Administration at Ekamai International School. She talked on the challenges in teaching, managing and disciplining students in the International School setting while sharing personal encounters dealing with parents and teachers. She shared ways of handling difficult students, tackling the issue of bullying, and mediating demands of parents. In one of her experiences, she pointed out the importance of picking or choosing battles wisely because not all conversations, discussions, and arguments are worth the time and effort when the outcome is unproductive. I am sure and believe that within the short session given, faculty and students felt blessed and that they benefited from the presentation. Looking forward to the next Alumni Sharing Session.
