Learning support

I am originally from India, but have been living in Norway for 8 years now. I completed my professional degree in computer engineering at Anna University in India. As I had always had a passion for teaching, after graduation I started to work as a lecturer at an engineering college in India.

After moving to Norway, my passion for teaching made me learn Norwegian and led me to work with children in a playschool. I also worked as a graphic designer in Drammen.

As I always loved working with children, I got trained as an abacus teacher and have run abacus clubs at GIS. I started as a substitute teacher at GIS. Later, I ran the childcare programme (SFO) and now I work as learning support. I love my work and the GIS environment to the core.

My hobbies are drawing, handmade crafts, painting and engaging children in quality, fun-filled activities.
