Director’s Message

Personally, I feel extremely privileged with the education I have managed to obtain. Consequently, I embarked on the mission to share my experience and enable others to achieve in the intellectual field too. This trait with the years formed into a noble calling that I have served faithfully.

My dedication to Education and Culture as such started in Athens, Greece and especially with my work on my Tourist Guide Diploma where I was immersed into history, art and culture while attending and practicing it. It was this qualification that prompted me to reach further by studying in the University College London and so my involvement with Classical Archaeology in BA and Classics in MA level proved a smooth transition after that.

My years in London and especially in University College London have sealed me as an individual with the global aspect of culture. It was there that I was initiated in acquiring knowledge by reaching for the basics, researching and observing while recording my comprehension in every step of its development. Thus, I realized that Education is obtained by sharing concepts and developing on them. I was encouraged always by my college to work in schools in London and share my approach to learning in Art and Cultural subjects which I enjoyed immensely. With my Montessori Training my teaching approach formed in terms of directing and guiding learners to achieve on their own pace. This is something that I have been developing ever since with my students.

In my 28 years of experience in providing education, I conceived that developing on the raw matter of the mental potential of my learners or accompanying them in their process to reach intellectual formation, is not just my fascination but my vocation. I consider this factor as a process of mental exercise for learners and educators enriching both parts.

Finally, my son has been a great training for me, too, as he is Dyslexic and of the Attention Deficit Disorder spectrum. Going with him through English Greek and American curriculum at pre-primary, primary and secondary education reaching to university has been my best postgraduate training in the field of learning ever.

The invitation to join the ASC team in setting up the educational material, and the approach to delivering it has not only honored me but it has granted me the noble task and responsibility, to assist in realizing a vision and a mission in the educational field of pre-primary and primary education. This marks an important turn in my career as an educator due to the fact that the instruction during the first seven formative years of young learners is very essential for their cognitive and emotional development.

My presence in this part of the world fulfills my desire to connect my education, work experience and potential into a fusion of a range of civilization traits through the English language and American attitude. Being an educator I am familiar with the principle that we never cease to learn, and my personal initiation into the Bangladeshi tradition presents my customization to a new mentality and culture that is very much enriching and challenging.
