Mariyakutty Mathew

Qualification:

Montessori in Pre -primary and Primary, B. Ed

Educational Philosophy: Teaching is not just my occupation but my passion. I am a fortunate person. My work is my hobby. My teaching does not end with the classroom. I think that being a teacher is the highest calling in life. One is trying to convey knowledge—I draw no hard distinction between being a teacher and being a researcher—but, more importantly than this, one is trying to infuse young people with a sense of joy of learning. Not just for its own sake, but for the lifelong results. Overall, the aim is to show and convince the student of the true worth of being a human being. And this is a moral quest. Not in some soft-sided fashion, but in a real, meaningful way.
WHY AM I A TEACHER?
"I believe the children are our future,
teach them well and
let them lead the way,
show them all the beauty they possess inside,
give them a sense of pride,
to make it easier,
let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be..."
(From Greatest Love of All, written by Michael Masser and Linda Creed, sung by Whitney Houston, 1985.)
