We take this opportunity to Congratulate them in their new roles! Read more about them below.
Meenakshi Myer has proven her passion towards holistic development as well as academic rigour since she has come onboard in July 2016. She is an educator with vast experience both in national and international education. Prior to joining Inventure, Meenakshi was an educator at Indus International School, Bishop Cottons Girls School, and Bangalore International School. She also held leadership roles at Indus – both at the school and the training and research institute. Meenakshi has a Master’s Degree from Delhi University and a B.Ed. She considers teacher training the most vital part of her career, as she feels well-trained faculty, versed in the best practices of 21st-century education, constantly redesigning and upgrading their practice, are the biggest value additions to the teaching-learning process. She believes that education should create open-minded, sensitized lifelong learners who are prepared to face the challenges of life with confidence and resilience. She is passionate about History and her biggest takeaway from the subject has been to develop a capacity to learn, unlearn and relearn in life.
Shruthi Y. Arun’s passion for education and her drive for excellence has been shaped over the past 14 years as a Senior School educator, Head of School and Principal. Her career spans across schools offering International and Indian curricula, in Bangalore and Mumbai. These include Vidyashilp Academy, Ecole Mondiale World School, Vibgyor High and Indus International School. A Post Graduate in Science with a UGC NET Certification and Junior Research Fellowship Award, she believes in being a lifelong learner and is currently pursuing an intensive 2 years’ job-embedded Course, culminating in a Certificate in Advanced Education Leadership at Harvard Graduate School of Education, Harvard University. Shruthi believes in providing meaningful academic experiences to students that are rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections. She also thinks it’s crucial that everyone who steps through our doors- teachers, students, and parents- are excited and happy to be here, enabling us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun and nurturing environment. Her belief in the Inventure Philosophy and desire to be associated with us through our journey prompted her to move from the role of a Principal to that of Head of School- Middle and Senior, at Inventure.
