Country: UAE
School: GEMS Modern Academy

Currently Principal of GEMS Modern Academy, a K-12 school in Dubai, UAE, offering the IBDP programme.
Having been in the field of education for the past 30 years, I consider it a privilege to lead a school of the caliber of Modern. Being a Nature enthusiast, trekker and passionate educationist I deeply believe in empowering students to become leaders in the 21st century climate of collaboration and digitization.

26 years in Education has helped my leadership style evolve to the point where previous experiences and current influences make decision making enjoyable and fruitful. Professionally, consulting for a start up school, conducting workshops for teachers and senior management and making a difference in the lives of others has been gratifying.

I have met some amazingly inspiring individuals who have made an impact and redefined perspective. As Principal of GEMS Modern Academy, an Indian curriculum school offering IBDP, I work with a strong team of committed individuals whose work ethic defines the ethos of the school.
