Ketaki joined Bombay International School in 2018. She has been teaching for nine years. While studying for her Masters in English Literature, she was teaching a few components of English Literature to TYBA and FYBA students at Sophia College for Women, Mumbai. On finishing her Masters, she moved to Bangalore where she worked at the Valley School (KFI) as the English teacher for Grades 11 and 12 (ISC). After finishing her B.Ed from the St. Xaviers Institute of Education, she started teaching students of Grades 9 and 10. However, as years went by, she discovered that her true passion lies in teaching younger students. This has inspired her to be a part of the Primary Years Programme at BIS.
Having had the good fortune of being a student and a teacher of a Krishnamurthy Foundation school, Ketaki is a strong propagator of education being a means to holistic development and not of academic prowess alone. She believes that the objective of a school is to create citizens who are open-minded, curious, kind and passionate. Therefore, the education imparted by schools must focus on equipping students with the skills to achieve those objectives.
Besides teaching, Ketaki’s other passions lie in reading, travelling, music and other forms of art
