International School In Hyderabad

I am Rani Somayaji, this is the beginning of my 13thyear of working at CHIREC INTERNATIONAL. I joined the CHIREC family in 2006. Chirec proved to be the beginning of a new chapter of my life- as a teacher. I enjoy working with the staff as well as those in the administration because everyone is willing to work together for the best interests of the students. I also enjoy supporting students at Sporting events, Cultural events, Model United Nations and in various other competitions. There is nothing better than seeing the excitement in the students’ eyes when they win awards for different competitions and events. I plan on spending more years teaching and supporting the students at CHIREC and watching the students grow into successful individuals. We are a team here at CHIREC INTERNATIONAL. I cannot be successful without the support of my teammates. We face many challenges daily, and we do it as a team. My job is different every day, but each day I know I am serving my students and supporting my teammates. I make a difference each day, and I like the way that feels! One of the things that continues to impress me is that the students at CHIREC are courteous, respectful and fun-loving. They not only are looking for a positive educational experience, but an overall living experience. This atmosphere challenges me to put forth my best efforts in order to help provide a well rounded learning experience for "our kids". When people ask me where I work, I state with pride and joy, "I work for CHIREC INTERNATIONAL.”

Hi, I am Kavita Mehta, Incharge of Gachibowli Campus. I have completed a year at CHIREC and truth be told, it has been a roller coaster ride for me. When I had joined this school, I was made the Incharge of the Admin department. After three months, the Director of CHIREC, Ms. Ratna Reddy, showed her confidence in me and made me the overall Incharge of Gachibowli campus. After successfully receiving my bachelor’s degree from Jesus and Mary College, Delhi, I further studied Bachelor’s in Applied Arts from Delhi College of Art, New Delhi. I then pursued Nursery Teachers Training from Indira Gandhi National Open University, Delhi, followed by a diploma course in Early Childhood Education from Hibernia College, UK. I also completed a Certified Hospitality Educator course from American Hotels & Lodging Educational Institute, USA. After working as a teacher with reputed organizations including Kids Central Cambridge International School and Indus Early Learning Center in Chennai, I joined SRM – Sri Ramaswamy Memorial University as a Training Consultant and a Senior Lecturer and was also an External Examiner. With brilliant facilities such as interactive boards for students, well set-up libraries, a transport system in place and delicious lunch, CHIREC International School remains on top for me. It has a systematic platform in place which monitors everything very closely. I have always embraced challenges as it not only makes me more confident but also prepares me for any hurdles in life. People at CHIREC have made my journey quite smooth with their constant motivation and encouragement. I would especially like to mention Ms. Ratna Reddy, Ms. Iffat Ibrahim and Ms. Ramani Ysv who guided me at every step and with their support, I could sail through here. Last year during summer vacation, I conducted the Personality Development Program for teachers of Gachibowli Campus. I am still learning and inculcating new skills every day at school. At CHIREC, instead of doubting your caliber, they appreciate your efforts and give you the responsibility to channelize your skills. Since I was closely connected to the hospitality industry, I always enjoyed a systematic way of working. So, when I came here for the interview, I was very fascinated with its well planned and structured environment. I don’t consider this as my workplace, it’s my second home and I sincerely look forward to doing my best for the growth of CHIREC

My name is Manorama Anne, and I have been working as a Math teacher at CHIREC since 2005. I did my Masters in Mathematics from Ravi Shankar University, Bhilai, Chattisgarh and completed B.Ed. from Jabulpur, Rani Durgavathi University. Ever since I joined CHIREC, it has been an amazing journey. I have been a part of various activities like CHIREC@25, Sports day, CHIREC fests, Children’s Day celebrations, academic fairs, class competitions, and house competitions. I learned a lot of skills and enjoyed the experience of building young minds who shower their unconditional love and respect. In three glorious decades of CHIREC, I proudly say that I have transformed myself into a better being than I was 13 years ago.CHIREC has developed a sense of community and classroom belonging in my teaching pedagogy. The culture of transparency, respect, and continuous professional development hold CHIREC higher than the rest. I can never forget the guidance and support given by Mr. Venkatraman and Ms. Rajalaxmi, the then Principal- in 2006, in setting up Math Laboratory first in CHIREC. Each person whom I have worked with has also contributed to enhancing my personality. Ms. Iffat Ibrahim - the Principal has always left me astounded through her perfection of work: be it planning and executing of a lesson plan or formatting the report card. Ms. Susan always helped me to stay calm and composed in every situation. The never-ending support and encouragement I’ve received from the director, Mrs. Ratna Reddy, my in-charges, and teachers, really mean a lot. I thank the management for giving me this opportunity and I hope to live up to the expectation of our Director, Mrs. Ratna Reddy.

I am K. Venkat Raman, Vice Principal of the International Section, CHIREC. It’s been a journey of 19 years for me with CHIREC and it’s like my second home. I was promoted to Programme Coordinator, Coordinator for classes IX TO XII, Head Master and now I am the Vice Principal of the International section. Teaching is my passion and I have been enjoying every bit of it for all these years.
I have been associated with all the students of CHIREC ever since the first batch of CHIREC passed out in 2001. I have learned a lot from each one of them. I enjoyed every bit of classroom interactions, playing Volleyball with them, Inter House Competitions, Excursions, etc. Every moment is special in one way or the other. No child is bad or an underperformer. It all depends on how best we mould them. I feel rewarded when the students extend their gratitude by sending messages that I could make a difference in their lives. It makes me feel very proud and honoured to hear that every single child, who passed out from CHIREC, is doing well.
There are so many people, who have influenced me and supported me. Some of them include Ms. Ratna Reddy, Ms. Manaswitha, Ms. Ramani, Ms. Ragini Suri, Ms. Tara, Mr. Masud Ali, Ms. Rajalaxmi, Ms. Iffat Ibrahim, & Mr. Sharma. One person who stands out is Ms. Ratna Reddy, who believed in me that I can reach this far. There is a saying “Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection, we can reach excellence”. Ms. Ratna not only practices this but influences us for which the results are here to prove. I am lucky to have a family, who stands by me and supports me without whom managing this far would not have been possible. My brothers, sisters, my school, childhood friends and college-mates have been of great help and support all through these years.

I love the following quote which states So often you find that the students you are trying to inspire are the ones that end up inspiring you.
Hi! I am Mrs. Swapna Kannedi, working as a Middle wing coordinator in CHIREC International. The long journey at CHIREC has given me a mountain of experiences, invaluable growth in terms of a person and a teacher and above all, a deep satisfaction that I would cherish all my life.
I started off as a primary teacher in CBSE, learnt a lot of skills and enjoyed the experience of building young minds who shower unconditional love on you and exhibit unexplainable trust. When we started the first batch of CIE, it was a challenge but in a year’s time we could crack the primary checkpoint and it was a feeling of achievement for the students and the staff and also of an approval that we were on the right track.

Two years down the line I was moved to the middle wing as a coordinator. If primary students teach you to be patient and loving, the middle school students teach you to accept questions of all kinds, to respect in order to be respected and be open minded. As they say teaching middle school is an adventure, not a job. Yes, the adventure is still continuing.

I had been teaching science to these students and the rapport I build with my students is something I love and probably will build on this skill, to know and understand them better. I am presently teaching biology for stage 9.

The best part of being a teacher is when the students who have left school tell you how happy they were in your class and the role you had played in building their skills in life. I live with my very supportive.

I am Milan Rao. I was a student at CHIREC from PP1 to X and passed out in 2008. My schooling in CHIREC has definitely been a huge influence in my life throughout my formative years. I’ve had the pleasure of growing up with some of the best and brightest people, some of whom have grown to become part of my innermost circle. I went on to pursue my Industrial Engineering at Purdue University and came back to Hyderabad in 2014. I was at the time toying with various ideas and entrepreneurial ventures before I decided that I wanted to venture into something that had the potential to be huge in the coming five years. I got my initial inspiration from Ingress a location-based Augmented Reality game. I decided that AR gaming was an experience that had immense scope for development as it was still in its niche stage (This was before Pokemon GO’s Heyday). My two co-founders and I founded my company Empower Labs in 2015 and went through different stages of our product ‘Delta T’ a time travel based AR mobile game. We faced a lot of challenges early on while building our product as there was very little awareness about the sector. We ran a bootstrapped company as the development cycle for the product was quite long and could not be rushed. We got our big break when Pokémon GO released and awareness went through the roof. We were suddenly in the right space at the right time two years into the development cycle of the product. We launched the beta of our game to great success and managed to raise close to $1 million in funding. We’ve partnered with the creative team of ‘Baahubali’ for the game and the final version will be hitting the Google Playstore and iOS App Store this March. There’s definitely a lot of jitters as close to three years of effort and planning is finally taking shape but we are hoping for the best. Regarding entrepreneurship, I always talk about two things a. it is important to keep the bigger picture in mind. We wanted to build a world class game from India and inevitably you will face numerous challenges on a daily basis, but always keep your eyes on the end goal and not get bogged down by these challenges. And b. Go out and start doing something rather than automatically expecting to find your calling. This will at least help you eliminate things that you don’t want to do, which will get you a step closer to what you want to do. I figured I want to stick to technology as a medium, no matter what happens with Delta T or Empower Labs, that’s because we can create an impact and reach a lot more people much faster compared to any other medium.

My name is V.K.L.T Katyayini , I teach Fashion Studies. I joined CHIREC in 2004, I graduated from Masters in Apparel and Textiles. I enjoy reading books, listening to music, doing embroidery and designing dresses. Before joining CHIREC, for 12 years I worked in Acharya N.G. Ranga Agricultural University as faculty in Indian Council of Agricultural Research – All India Cooperated Research Project. I organise fashion shows for the students of Fashion Studies to showcase their designs. Also, I coordinate for workshops and internships CHIREC students of Fashion Studies have been placed in world ’s top universities such as London college of Fashion, Parsons College of Design, New York and National Institute of Fashion Technology.
My best moments at CHIREC are when I was recognized for my contributions. I am proud of my contributions toward placing CHIREC as a top CBSE school for Fashion Studies students achieved 100 percentage pass rate in Grade XII AISSCE Examination consecutively from 2012 to 2016. All my class X graders, batch of 2012, attended the Alumni meet and surprised me by recalling their memories. Proud moments for me are when my students keep in touch with me and inform about their achievements and take my suggestions for their projects and start-ups.
CHIREC is a place for continuous learning, both for students and teachers. It seems as if only yesterday I started my journey at CHIREC but it is already 13 years. I feel proud to be a part of CHIREC community which supports and provides opportunities to teachers to grow professionally as well as an individual. Also CHIREC’s contributions towards community service and responsibility towards eco-friendliness is appreciable.

Being born and brought up in Hyderabad, I m a proud Hyderabadi. I ve not travelled much, but I feel this city is the place to live in.
In Hyderabad, apart from my home, the other place that I ve spent maximum time would be at CHIREC.

This is my second innings at CHIREC. The first time when I went through the interview at CHIREC (in 2003) it was a 2-day grilling process(phew). This time around the entry was so smooth that it’s like I ve never been out of CHIREC

Worth mentioning here, that my son was with me, during my first tenure. He has such fond memories of CHIREC, that in spite of being in Class 12, he wishes that he was here than anywhere else.

As a teacher and a team leader, I know that CHIREC is a task master. It sets high goals for the teachers but handholds them to achieve these Goals. For a person who is driven and dedicated towards Goal setting and achievement, CHIREC is the right place since opportunities are aplenty.
Speaking Personally, I have been constantly encouraged and mentored by my employer Mrs .Ratna Reddy to take up new and challenging roles and responsibilities, constantly engaging me for higher goal setting.

One person that I cannot forget, whose association I cherish in chirec is Mrs.Ratna Kumari. She was a very witty and humorous person and the one instrumental in bringing me back to CHIREC. -Cinymol Muralidhar

My name is Shirisha Kondury and I joined CHIREC International School as a Mathematics teacher and assistant IBDP coordinator. I am an engineer by qualification with a Masters in Electrical Engineering from University of Cincinnati but by profession and by passion I have always been a teacher. High school teaching has particularly interested me because teaching at this stage becomes more of discussion, investigation and research where I am both a teacher and a learner. I am always in the company of bright, enthusiastic and energetic minds who inspire me to challenge myself and learn more everyday.
At CHIREC, students show great responsibility in their learning, they do not assume that the teacher needs to tell them everything and needs to give them an answer for every question they have. They rather feel they should partner with the teacher in their quest for knowledge. When I teach in class, I feel encouraged to teach more because my students show the curiosity to learn more. My colleagues are very warm and welcoming, who believe in supporting each other and in collaborating effectively.
I look forward to spending more meaningful years at CHIREC and add value to their existing system with new ideas, improved program delivery and make it a place where teachers love to teach and students love to learn.
I am also a parent of the Cambridge school where my son studies in middle school. I am as happy with the school as a parent as I am as a teacher. My son says he likes the school because students are very open minded and accepting and teachers are supportive. I feel like I cannot ask for more.

I am Manju Sharma, Head of the Hindi Department at CHIREC. I still remember the day I was at my radio recording when I was introduced to CHIREC. I applied and soon enough I was part of the CHIREC team and from that day on to today, I am grateful to CHIREC for providing me with opportunities to exhibit my knowledge and grow as an educator, facilitator and guide for my students.

I thoroughly enjoy every responsibility given to me by the school including my classes, class observation, magazine work, conducting workshops for teachers, organizing a special assembly, and checking lesson plans.

Working as teacher is as demanding as it is stimulating. Balancing between my role as a teacher and HOD is tough but a satisfying challenge to have overcome. I graduated from Jaipur University. My favorite hobby is reading and I enjoy reading Hindi literature and books like Shrinkhla Ki Kadiya and Chitraleka. I haven’t traveled much apart from Banaras, Rajasthan, Chennai, Mumbai and now in Telengana. My Guru, Prof Rishabh Dro Sharma is my role model as he inspired and motivated me a lot. I started teaching right from my college days and my journey has brought me to CHIREC. My fondest memory is when I received my Ph.D degree. I beam with pride when I see the textbooks I’ve authored are used in schools. The grammar textbook currently used at CHIREC is my hard work too. These may be little milestones, but the joy of teaching just pushes me forward to achieve greater milestones in life. Teaching at CHIREC is both rewarding and motivating. The fun which I have with my students in the classes is immeasurable. I would like to think that the love we have is mutual as the the kids have awarded me titles like: ‘Dedicated Teacher’ and ‘Pretty Lady’.

People always ask me, why learn Hindi in a time where other languages are fast catching up in the nation. I have always believed that learning Hindi is as helpful as learning any other language in the world. There are so many untapped resources of employment out there that are waiting to be utilized by educated young individuals who are familiar with Hindi, be it in India or abroad. The richness of the Hindi vocabulary cannot be matched by most foreign languages. And in these modern days, the world is interested to learn the culture of India and the Hindi language.

I am Mrs. P Parvathi and I very proudly say CHIREC is my school. Yes, I can say it as I have been with CHIREC for 20 years now and this is how CHIREC has made me feel. Initially I taught Classes 1, 2, and 3. In my very first year of work, being with the young minds, their friendly nature, their energy, love and enthusiasm took me to the whole new world and these children became a part of my life forever.

One of the most memorable experiences was when I got a chance to train the kids to sing for the school anniversary. It was a song written and composed by me. The encouragement that was shown to me on that occasion by Ms. Ratna and the others left an indelible mark and became the driving force for me for all these years. As I went ahead to teach higher classes later on, I got the opportunity to attend numerous workshops which taught me various pedagogical skills, interpersonal skills, and helped me become better and better.

There is one thing about us at CHIREC, no matter what the task at hand is, we succeed Our school provides a safe, friendly, encouraging and motivating environment for our students. Our students attend various competitions and they are trained to give best in everything they do, and bring back laurels. My eyes swell up with tears each year during the alumni meets where our ex-students like Ashritha, Varun, Tejaswi, Juhi, Sneha, Minakshi, Swathi, Veda and Deepti Kodali who are now successful in their careers and in different spheres, come back to visit us and fondly narrate their memorable experiences and the valuable lessons they learnt here.

Being associated with a school which constantly strives to achieve the highest standards in education is a pleasure beyond words. I will be forever indebted to Ms. Ratna for giving me the opportunity to work for and be a valuable member of this wonderful CHIREC family.

I am Padma Kamineni, my 25-year long journey with CHIREC began in 1992. I have seen CHIREC as a baby who, along with me in my abilities and experience, have grown together. grown I am a more resourceful person to all sections of administration and CHIREC’s transition from infancy to adulthood has indeed been a memorable one. My education was from a village, in Telugu Medium, and so I had meek knowledge of languages. I have however learned two languages – Hindi and English as my work demand me to.

Gardening and tree plantation was one of my many roles back then. I was responsible for planting 1000 plants in the year 1996 around the CHIREC Campus. Now they have grown into big and mighty, beautiful trees decorating the sides of the CHIREC Avenue. I used to dream about all these plants which I planted, growing into flowering trees which has now become real. I still remember the two kids, D. Nilkhil and Nikhil Subaramanium who were always sent off to do gardening as punishment by their teachers. They used to enjoy gardening along with me.
The other role I used to handle was the transport. A person from the village couldn’t possibly have strong knowledge of the city back then. But today, I am the person planning and organizing the 98 routes for all the three branches. I am also responsible for liasioning all work related to the different Government departments. I was involved in the purchasing of land and construction of Kondapur campus and I am proud of the success of CHIREC. I have witnessed the transition of CHIREC and all the kids in it turning out to be magnificent stars.

Personally I love to dress in traditional Indian style and like long journeys. I take great pleasure to express my heartfelt gratitude, through this medium, to Mrs.Ratna Reddy, an inspirational figure who she stood by me through every high and low, supporting me in every situation and by providing me with all kinds opportunities.

We are Anand Parameswaran & Syamala Lanka and we are CHIREC Parents. We became associated with CHIREC in 2007-08 when we admitted Pallavi in Class IV. From Day One until now, I have found CHIREC to be the perfect blend of aspirational attitude and strong values. I have also witnessed how CHIREC has continued to evolve with the world around us – additional focus on extra-curricular activities, creating a world class MUN event, partnership with institutes like Career Launcher for training in CLAT, creating an ecosystem to help students study abroad etc. are some of the changes that we have seen. CHIREC has shown sensitivity to the needs of the individual child and I have personally experienced teachers partnering with us as parents to help our children deal with issues. Most of the teachers that we have interacted with have shown a genuine interest in our children and given good feedback around their personal development. The multiple options available for Group A and Group B activities have helped my children to try out options before settling on their preferred activities. Since Pallavi has joined college and we are moving to the US for a few years with Niharika, we have to take a pause in our journey with CHIREC. However, when we come back to India, CHIREC will remain as our first choice. I wish your school the very best of success for many years to come.

I am Sreekar. I passed out from CHIREC in 2008. I completed bachelors in mechanical engineering at CBIT and then went on to pursue Masters in Engineering Management (MEM) at Dartmouth College, USA. I returned to India to work on my company, Gradvine Advisors Pvt. Ltd., a peer-to-peer mentoring platform for students applying for universities abroad and those looking for jobs. I was in CHIREC from the age of 4 where I began my pre-primary education at the old Begumpet campus, which later got shifted to Kondapur. I loved the sports facilities at the new campus and enjoyed playing cricket. Some of my finest memories also involved the plays and the morning assembly that students were required to organise. These activities truly helped in my holistic development and helped me explore various facets of my personality. CHIREC also laid the foundation for me to write, speak and think in English, which back in the early 2000s was still rare for schools in Hyderabad. I would like to thank my teachers as they were very stringent while awarding grades as they expected a very high level of written English from us. This helped me a lot while writing essays to apply to universities abroad. My essays were automatically at a different level, which allowed me to get an admit to an Ivy League university with a fellowship.

I Sujatha. K joined CHIREC in the year 1991. I was a fresh trainee of Preschool. Ratna Ma am gave me an opportunity to teach PPII class. I was a bit nervous in the beginning to teach little children. With Madam s support and encouragement, I was able to handle the class confidently. CHIREC gave me the platform to be a confident, strong and to face the world no matter whatever comes your way. CHIREC has made me a strong lady. It is unbelievable that I have been in association with the school for 25 yrs. It gives me immense pleasure when children come to me and say Ma am, You was our PP teacher please come to us in the higher classes too, we love you Ma am! I still remember one student Harshvardhan whom I taught him PPII came back after 10 years and tells me that I still remember you Ma am how much care and love who showered on us. Sarvesh another student visits the school makes it a point to meet me. It really gives me happiness and pleasure when the students come back and say Ma am we always remember you as our first teacher.

I always loved teaching the little children and listening to their innocent talks. It gives me immense pleasure and happiness when people say You have been in school for 25yrs.

My association with CHIREC has been for 25 years and would like to serve still beyond. Teaching is my passion specially Pre-Primary classes. It gives me immense pleasure, joy and happiness working at CHIREC.

I am Anita K.V. and I joined CHIREC in 1992. It has been a long and pleasurable journey for the past 24 years as a pre-primary teacher. I have taught Nursery, PPI and PPII classes and taken part in summer camps too. I am delighted to teach students their first English letters and introduce them to counting numbers. In the beginning, I was only a bird in the nest and CHIREC has taught me to fly beyond my horizons. With the changes in educational trends, I too have grown and adapted well, with great spirit, to the new ways of teaching and learning. To my students through the years, I love them all, with their bubbling smiles. Their smiles have taken me great distances and I continue to feel inspired and young at heart. Many students still remember me as their first teacher which gives me a rewarding and unforgettable experience. I am very happy that my kids from all these years are doing well in their studies.

When I recall some of my tiny tots, I remember Nabeelah who used to always hold my pallu. She was a student in my first batch and now she is a doctor. I still remember Karthikeya who used to say, If you don t come to school, I don t come to school. He is pursuing Engineering course now. Samarthwadva used to be my speaker in topic presentations. Sruthi Srnivasan who hid my things, and Kriti Srinivasan who only wanted me to look at her while narrating stories or else she would cry! I also remember Shresht and Deepali and their sweet voices, giggling Laila and Angad who used to say I am a Superman. My most favorite students Teju, Deekshita, Dharmin, Ravi, Laya,Trinadh and Rajeev were so fond of me. I also remember Arjun who always wanted me to sit beside him, and Gautham (who is also left handed) used to say “you and me are same” and Prachi Nagpal who cheered the class. I have mentioned only a few, there are many more kids whose lovely actions and words are still engrossed in my mind.

CHIREC has been an experience of a lifetime and whenever I see my cheerful students each morning I’m still mesmerised!

I am D. Laxmi Prakash. I did Masters in Commerce from Ravi Shankar University, Raipur, MP and completed B.Ed. from Annamalai University, Chennai. I joined CHIREC in 1990s and worked here for 5 years before I had to move to Delhi. I was a primary teacher and was teaching Maths and Hindi then. My elder daughter joined in Class 8 and younger one in Class 2 in 1996. It was here that their talent got discovered and they honed it further. My daughters did extremely well and the credit for their overall personality development goes to CHIREC. My elder daughter was head girl of the school and she was one among the toppers. Mr Lester Paul was the art teacher at that time, who helped in tapping my daughter’s talent in painting and encouraged her to do better. She was a good athlete and due to the encouragement from her teachers (Mr.M Masud Ali), she still participates in marathons. Recently she completed 21 kms race. My both daughters are employed and doing well in their respective fields. As a teacher, I concentrated on my job. I owe a lot to the school for grooming my kids, special thank Mr. Sharma Rachapudi and Mr. Venkatraman Intel Future Teacher training imparted in 1990s improved my computer proficiency, it was easy for me to get through the competitive interview in a school in Delhi, when I moved there. Subsequently I could fit well into the school atmosphere. I became a secondary teacher. After few years, I again moved to Hyderabad and re-joined CHIREC in …June2012 I teach Statistics, Economics and Business Studies. I would like to thank Mrs Ratna Reddy Ms. Ramani Ysv as they have given opportunity to rejoin and helped me to transit smoothly. We arranged commerce fair in 2014, wherein we depicted a Bank and stock exchange functioning. The fair was attended by the parents, it was a good experience. I am passionate about teaching. I can sit at home but I run and come to school. I feel very young with children. I never count my age. I feel very happy to be with the students. Today I am what I am because of CHIREC and I continue to learn. I never seem to reach the saturation. My colleagues and superiors inspire me to go on and on. #peopleofCHIREC

My name is Sridevi Ratnamala, I’m a Physics graduate and I teach physics to the middle school. Being associated with the Airforce has instilled in me the qualities of determination, dedication and discipline, which help me in contributing my bit to meet the vision & the values of the organization. Ever since I joined CHIREC in 2010, it has been an amazing journey. I have been part of various activities like CHIREC fests, Children’s Day celebrations, organizing as well as conducting workshops for students and teachers, preparing students for various competitions in the field of science and technology, quizzes, etc. I particularly feel proud of being a part of the school’s contribution to the community. I have worked with the students for various NGO’s and orphanages. I have conducted yoga sessions for the senior citizens of various old age homes. I have facilitated donation of shoes and clothing to the needy. I have undertaken various green projects like, ‘Haritha-Haram’, ‘Permaculture’, and ‘Swachch Bharat’ to foster the concepts of sustainable development and eco-friendliness in my students. Campaigns like ‘Save-Energy’, ‘Organ donation’, and developing an app for the visually challenged will always be a highlight in my career as I learnt a lot in planning and executing them. I find my students splendid, delightful and insightful at the same time. I glow with pride at their every big and small achievements and I make it a point to appreciate their efforts immediately. I am a self-motivated person and enjoy reading books, written especially by Ms. Sudha Murthy. I am a people’s person and I care for the needy. My quest for knowledge does not let me rest. I thank my seniors, in-charges and the principals for having the faith in me. I look forward to achieving more milestones of helping the community, learning with my students and sharing the excitement of learning with them.

I remember my first day at CHIREC: The induction period, the tradition of total staff gathering, the Directors Address, and the introduction of the new staff members. The mic is passed around and arrives in my hands. My voice suddenly boomed, “Hellow! Everybody, I’m Susan Bird. I’m no sparrow. I’m an Albatross.”

Heads turned, eyes rolled, ears flapped. Truly, I’m not small made, and my new colleagues could see that. It’s been six years now, and my journey here at CHIREC has been swift, remarkable and fulfilling. From Classroom Teacher, to Middle School Incharge, to Secondary School Head Mistress, the school built me. It put me in a box, and I outgrew it, so every year, I was put in a new box with a new label, and now I’m in a box that fits all sizes!

Understanding CHIREC and all its stakeholders took time; not surprisingly, while I was coming to understand others, they were coming to understand me as well, so very soon I came to feel that I had become CHIREC. It’s philosophy, it’s practices, it’s quality consciousness, it’s compassion, it’s progress, it’s climb, all became my work nature.

At this point in time, when I look back on my 20 year teaching career, I feel boastful about my stint here. It has been so enriching. Professionally, I am tempered to fit the 21st century teaching community; emotionally, I am balanced; economically, I have sufficiency; temperamentally, I am funny and straight forward. To my colleagues, I seek to be a strong pillar; to the support staff, I m a friend; and to the students, I’m humorous, blunt and direct, and always try to remain the reasonable one. We share space with the present generation. They look up to us and we look up to them and we’re running the race together in the scenario of changing needs and demands. No losers, no winners, all survivors, who are better humans and more enterprising. At CHIREC when change is seen in the horizon, we pick up our baggage and embrace it.

Hello! My name is Madhusudan Challa. I am the Accountancy teacher at CHIREC since 2011. I hold a PGT certification in Accountancy along with a M.Com. and LL.B. When I joined CHIREC back then, I was pretty apprehension about it as I had joined in the middle of an academic year. I was anxious about how the students would respond to me as they were by then already used to the teaching technique of their previous teacher. However, that very year my fears disappeared because of the support of the management, and the students, who adjusted to my method of teaching very well. To talk about results, my students achieved a very good percentage right from the first year of my teaching, which definitely boosted my morale. The highest mark so far has been 99% but I am aiming for 100% this year and in the near future.

The atmosphere in CHIREC is like that of a family. My colleagues and I often discuss the topics and current affairs and deciding on the best practices for the benefit of the students. As I am also a graduate of Law, CHIREC has given me the opportunity to be a facilitator in Legal Studies and I can proudly state that my first batch, incidentally the first batch of the CBSE board in Legal Studies, did extremely well with the highest being 97%. There were no text books and we relied entirely on technology to get our material. I also taught accountancy in the International section in 2011-13 same way, and I am proud to say that my students and I did pretty well.

The school had once provided us with the wonderful opportunity to take our students to visit the Stock Exchange at Mumbai. Such opportunities widen the sphere of knowledge both for the student and the teacher. It was a great learning experience to listen to professionals of Bombay Stock Exchange share their experiences. I thank the management for giving me this opportunity and I hope to meet up to the expectation of our Director Madam, Mrs. Ratna Reddy.
