Sailing to the Shores of Success

Women are enjoying the impact of globalization like never before and making an influence not only on domestic but also on international sphere. Among the varied roles women are leading in the modern day that of an educator is one of the toughest. "A Principal has the task of tirelessly keeping the school focused on what students should know and be able to do and to what extent. Only because I have been given the administrative position, this doesn't mean that I am merely meant to pass orders, it's all about participating equally in the process," opines Prof. Sarkar. She treats her team of teachers very cordially and provides timely suggestions regarding teaching methodologies and techniques based on her experiences.
