Today we are meeting Lakshmi @realitygives, our school leader, who recently celebrated an incredible 10 years with Reality Gives:
"I am currently working as the School Leader for the School Program with with Reality Gives but having worked with the NGO since 2010 the changes have been considerable.
Currently as the School Leader I am responsible for the School Program Team, this includes supporting the teacher training, connecting with partner organisations, monitoring the teaching and learning processes across the classrooms among many other things.
I love interacting with the children and ensuring that my team comes to school happy and leaves in a happy frame of mind at the end of the day. Emotional Intelligence is extremely important; if the team is happy, this usually reflects in their performance with the students.
When I joined 10 years ago, I loved confronting the challenges that came with starting a new program; whether it was setting up the preschool in the community, supporting a government led school to now supporting a low income private school for what is now recognised as our School Program; it has definitely kept my Adrenalin pumping.
The additional challenge we faced with our parents in the community when our new model of child-centred learning was introduced was also difficult as they questioned it heavily but we have come a long way. Through numerous workshops, specifically for the parents. and meetings, they are now really happy with our method and are now asking Reality to do even more."
Thank you for all your years you have dedicated to Reality Gives Lakshmi, you've been on quite a journey and an integral member of our team. As a leader who is continually open to self development and changes you are setting a fantastic example to your team!
