2019 by Teacher Leaders International

Testimonial 

Any school that's interested in modern learning and understanding deeply the principles and practices related of concept-based learning should consider working with Dr. Sudha Govindswamy. She displayed a high commitment to collaborative planning, meeting with us in advance of the workshop to learn about our goals and current context which ultimately allowed her to design a customized experience tailored to our needs. Demonstrating a deep understanding of learning theory and the IB program coupled with a humble approach, Dr. Govindswamy was able to effectively engage, challenge and deepen the practice of our teachers at all grade levels. I'm pleased to share that all the teachers universally requested continued consultation and opportunities for further training and workshops.
