Having worked with Aditya Birla World Academy from the inception, I feel like a true member of the team. A genuine sense of being a part of the family bolsters me every day and I, in turn, pass that feeling on to my students. Aditya Birla World Academy cares about meeting the emotional and academic needs of all its students. Because of this, it believes in providing extensive support, professional development and encouragement to all its teachers. Strong teachers beget strong students. At ABWA, teachers are given all they need to develop and perfect their craft, while meeting the needs of the students they are so passionate about. I have been given several opportunities to attend workshops and trainings for which I am grateful to the school.
I always feel safe to talk about areas of growth, and truly believe that my Principal, Section Head and colleagues care for me and want to see me grow as a teacher. I feel honoured and proud to be a teacher at ABWA.
Growing up, I wanted school to be more, to mean more. We were the product of a system where you learned from a book and rarely questioned. School should have been a more 360 degree experience, but most times it felt like a run-of-the-mill.
This feeling of yearning never left me. So after much thought, I decided to move into the field of education and it led me here, to this very school.
As a teacher here, we are able to provide a nurturing and safe environment where children are taught to question and disagree and engage. Learning is in their hands and we are just a vehicle. It is always in the best interest of the child to think for himself/herself.
Here at the Aditya Birla World Academy, there is a strong sense of family that exists, not just with the children but also with the ever so committed staff. It is never about coming out on top. It is about coming together so that the children can thrive. The school presents us with several opportunities for growth, as a means to develop ourselves and our skills as teachers, which is in a sense a validation and a huge motivation to strive on for the children.
Today's society is all about making it and becoming successful. However, here we feel it's even more important to imbibe a sense of gratitude and to give back. This school allows me to raise every student of mine to be the best version of himself/ herself, to take risks in life, to realize that money isn't always a true definition of success. Happiness is! And lastly, to live an enriching life where he/she can continue to engage and evolve every single day.
I am happy to be a part of a school that cares and ensures that everyone feels welcome and appreciated.
Armed with over two decades of teaching skills I had joined the Aditya Birla World Academy. During the last ten years the school has not only enriched my teaching life but has also been a happy place to come to every day.
This has been possible due to the strong leadership and nurturing in the school. Our Chairperson, Mrs. Birla, has been the guiding light of the journey, with her motivation and encouragement. The freedom to express even the most conflicting views has helped me to be assertive in every way. Vibrant, lively and diverse colleagues who are ever ready to share their knowledge and experiences, interspersed with the masti in the staff room makes our school a joie de vivre.
The carefully designed and regularly conducted workshops have helped me develop not only my soft skills but helped me improve my professional and personal relationships with my colleagues. Not to mention the several opportunities to train and grow which have constantly helped me bring out the innate potential of the students and mould them into passionate, creative, sensitive and value based individuals.
The icing on the cake for me has been the creative freedom given to organize and conduct community service which has been my passion for long.
Continuous appreciation for good that is done and cordial handholding when I falter have been the corner stone of my growth. Being a member of the pre-opening team of this school I have seen a great Sunrise, for me Sunset will be just as grand.
Mumbai has been my home for the last 6 years and I love living in this vibrant city and working in such an exciting school. The school has a strong mission and vision and comes with an excellent management team who value their staff. Working at ABWA has been a career defining experience. I have enjoyed teaching mathematics and discussing with my students and have always been impressed with their desire to engage with creative learning approaches. Thinking of new ideas and thinking of ways to improve one’s practice are encouraged and celebrated here. We have a strong academic program and are not just a school that is doing only what it needs to do, but we continue to push the boundaries of what can be done. The staff, parents and students are very friendly and welcoming. It is a HAPPY PLACE!!!
ABWA has transformed and translated me into a lifelong learner with an ever-increasing thirst for knowledge and experience. The school allowed me to exploit my fetal potential and nurture them into traits that, today, define my character. I will always be grateful for the open environment that pushed me to my limits and encouraged me to learn, achieve and inspire.
“ABWA has not only given me a quality education but it has given me the confidence to be myself. The school has been outstanding where the teachers have supported me every step of the way and the students have been compassionate and mature. I can proudly say I love every bit of this school and it is my second home.”
The end of this academic year brings an end to my daughter Rhea's journey in this esteemed institution as she passes out from Grade 12 IB.
The past 7 years have been her golden years where she blossomed and flourished. She has always been a quiet and hard-working child and ABWA allowed her to recognize her strengths and talents which have contributed to the girl she is today. The open and friendly environment in school made this a fun-filled journey for her. This open policy has always allowed her to approach any of her teachers and ask for any kind of help. Personally, when I have visited school in the past seven years, I have always seen happy faces around, which for me was very reassuring. Further, given that the first board examinations of a student's career is intimidating to say the least, your team and you do a great job in trying to make the whole process of the IGCSE examinations, a smooth one. I thank your entire team and you for all the wholehearted support and help that was given to Rhea.
The beauty that underlies the essence of ABWA is that it allows every student to find his or her own niche and flourish. My son, Prabhat, is completely different in terms of his disposition along with his likes and dislikes and the roles that he likes to pursue, from Rhea. He too has blossomed and has been able to realize his strengths and optimise them. He has had an enriching experience and a great time right from Grade 6 to Grade 9 and I am sure that he too will receive the same levels of support and help from your wonderful team in the upcoming year of the grade 10 examinations.
Wishing you all the very best!
Here at ABWA every single stakeholder from teachers to staff to children lives the motto “Learn, Achieve Inspire.” It is a place where our values as families have been nourished and my children have had an incredible journey of growing into emphatic thinking individuals and lifelong learners.
In the last ten years I have not only witnessed my children’s growth but also seen myself grow intellectually, emotionally, & have honed my softer skills - all this thanks to the team of excellent loving Principal, Section Heads, teachers and undoubtedly the CR body.
So far, moving our children to ABWA, a decade back has been the most fruitful and worthy decision. We are blessed to be a part of this school which has firm Indian roots!
