Ranu Bhattacharyya has taught at The American International School in Japan, Dhaka, and Delhi, the International School in Beijing, and at The Brussels English Primary School.
While growing up, choosing a career was difficult, explains Ranu, not because there was nothing she really wanted to do, but because she wanted to do so many different things. "Amongst other things, I wanted to immerse myself in stories and literature, create stories of my own, playact and perform, sing, dance, and paint. In other words, I was reluctant to leave my childhood behind. So I decided not to! Becoming a teacher of young children allowed me to pursue all of my passions in the company of like-minded peers: my students."
Ranu says she loves teaching because she has fun every day in the company of children. "I also know that I touch their lives in ways that go beyond the classroom."
