Poonam Chauhan, Head, Pre primary school, has been a part of Shikshantar since 2003 as a member of its first team of facilitators. An Economics graduate with a diploma in Public Relations, her innate connect with children and an intuitive understanding of their world drew her to the field of education. She believes in creating a learning environment that stimulates children’s thinking and keeps their spirit of enquiry alive.
At Shikshantar, she has strengthened her understanding about progressive education and its implementation in the classroom and evolved from a learner facilitator to a mentor and guide for her team of teachers.
She likes to read, travel and learn about different cultures. However, it is engaging with children that interests her most and continues to nurture the child within her.
