Bharti Rao "I am passionate about Education...

Episode #89: Sandeep Dutt in conversation with Bharti Rao, a Passionate English Educator and Vice-Principal at The Fabindia School with 20 years of teaching experience. Alumni of Sophia High School and have taught in girls and co-ed school in Mount Abu. After a break of 12 years and she joined The Fabindia School in 2004. Her motto is 'Where there is a will, there is a way!'. With her strong willpower and confidence, she was determined to find the way out against all odds of culture, family background and the pressing needs of being a homemaker. Her communication and written skills in English are the assets that have taken her a long way in life; good listening skills, being patient, responsible and having a positive attitude. As an educator, she grows her students with dedication and works for children's all-around development. She wants to enhance and teach moral values to make them successful and responsible human beings and create learning spaces. Sending girls to school has historically been a challenge for many cultures and countries; the single most reason for this has been the attitude and understanding of parents, many of who are not yet first generation learners. In her case, her parents offered her tremendous support, and in addition, the male members in the family she got married to all helped her grow her passion for education. Her twelve-year hiatus, being married to a family that was limited in vision due to social norms, she managed to find a form with compassion and caring. Today, she finds that education is transforming households, fathers who are farmers, rural livelihood being their source of sustenance, accompany their girls to admit them to school; this is the significant change her village and India has seen.
