"Teaching is the greatest form of optimism." - Colleen Wilox

Education, as an instrument of social change, plays a crucial role not only in character building and personality development but also prepares the individual to face the challenges of life with determination and confidence. The most important skill of 21st century is adaptability. A teacher needs to formulate, construct, arrange, modify and make sense of information; so that it is understood as knowledge. Knowledge empowers leaders, drives breakthroughs, and inspires discoveries. With every milestone reached, sights are set beyond the horizon, bringing hope and peace for the journey ahead.
