More About Me
I was born in the South of India, in a town called Srirangam. Here, I completed my ‘Bachelor of Engineering in Electronics and Communication’, in 2003. Following this, I continued my studies and completed my ‘Master of Engineering in Embedded Systems’, in 2005. Following my studies, I worked as an Associate Professor at the SASTRA Engineering College for two years and I got married and came to Sydney in January 2007 . I started my PhD in ‘Development of Body Area Networks – using Wireless Communication’ in 2008, at the University of Technology of Sydney (UTS). I have temporarily paused my PhD to support my children at their young age and I plan to continue with it in the future.
In 2014 I decided that I wanted to change professions and learn more about child development, therefore, I enrolled in and completed my Certificate III in Children’s Services. My career in Early childhood commenced in January 2016 at Wahroonga Long Day Care Centre. I was encouraged to pursue this field of work after giving birth to my two, beautiful children. My children have taught me so much about my interests and enthusiasm towards helping children develop and grow. I am currently undertaking studies at TAFE to complete my Diploma in Children’s Services.
My experience at Wahroonga Long Day Care Centre, so far, has been so rewarding. I feel blessed to be working under the supporting guidance of an amazing Director! The children at Wahroonga Long Day Care Centre have brought so many positive and happy moments to me! I love the way they always seem to make me smile and laugh. They always seem to boost my energy levels and I feel that this makes my role so special and unique!
I feel it is essential for educators to help build children’s confidence and to encourage children to believe in themselves. As an educator, I highly focus on respect and collaborative relationships where children are taught about the importance of sharing, being compassionate and showing respect towards themselves as well as others.
- I have a strong interest in teaching and doing research, particularly in the areas of child development, wireless communication and networking;
- Writing journals, blogs and book chapters;
- Listening to music.
