Who We Are


Title: Head of Careers Department, Counsellor and Teacher

Inter-disciplinarity, internationalism and “Education without Prejudice” are values I adhere to strictly. I am an IB graduate from Mahindra United World College of India, and completed my higher studies in Jacobs University Bremen and University Bremen (Germany) in Marine Geosciences and Climate Research. After traveling extensively around the world, I was keen to give back to the communities that have structured my holistic growth – hence, my interest in teaching Environmental Sciences and Geography at my alma mater, AVS. I am also heading the Careers Department as a Guidance Counselor and am an ardent enthusiast of Theater and Dramatics which I also lead in school. More importantly, my penchant lies in creating a holistic education and guidance support system in the North Eastern states of India.

Title: Faculty Advisor to Careers Department, Housemistress & Teacher 

Enthusiasm, interest and adaptability are the cutting edge tools in the fast pace world of today. I firmly believe that there’s a kid in each one of us and as long as that imp surfaces now and then, it helps us connect and understand youngsters much better.

Born and brought up in the scenic hill station of Shillong and a graduate of St. Mary’s College in Shillong, I always felt that education went far beyond the classroom. In order to engage more with an experiential teaching system, I joined Delhi Public School in Numaligarh in 2000 and later moved to The Assam Valley School in 2007. It is here that working closely both with students and parents, I realized the importance of every stakeholder as well as the influence that we as adults have on the younger generation.

Title: Faculty Advisor to Careers Department & Teacher

Qualification: B.Sc.(Physics), B.Ed., CA.(Inter), MBA( Finance)

With a work experience of around 19 years partly in corporate and more than a decade in education, I am someone who has put to practice the method of trial and error to find my real vocation. The need for career guidance and counselling is something that I find very imperative for students, not because the students are not able to choose for themselves but because what if, like me, you like studying everything?

Hobbies include reading and writing, going for long walks in solitude and storytelling to the younger kids. Teenagers are always to attend my commerce classes as they are full of drama anyway. I believe that there is space in the world for every kind of culture, religion, belief. I stay away from any kind of bigotry, fanaticism and obscene behaviour.
