Her personal warmth and intellectual vigor are traits students and colleagues vouch for.

As a Transition Supervisor, she ensured the children experience a smooth and seamless switch from the Kindergarten to Grade 1.
Monisha is very passionate about contributing meaningfully to the holistic and academic development of children in the Lower Primary. She has mentored colleagues to uplift their teaching and learning methods. Personally, she updates herself with the latest teaching methodology to enhance a growth mindset in the classroom. Redesigning learning spaces and ensuring optimum use of resources to help enhance learning in the Primary School are other areas of her expertise.
A skilled artist herself she is able to open the door for a child into a world of inquiry, communication, reflection and taking action.
