Mrs. Jennifer Bolar

Teacher

Having been part of Notre Dame Academy for the past five years, I can proudly say that I have enjoyed every moment of my time spent here. Teaching invites constant growth and improvement. I love teaching because the teacher works in an atmosphere of idealism, dealing with soul and heart, with ideas and ideals. NDA offers students a caring educational environment where they learn moral values to become good, committed, responsible and honest citizens of the country. NDA is a special place also because of the involvement and support of so many families.

I can rightly say that I was destined to work for NDA, and I thank Sr. Manisha for giving me the opportunity. I have learnt so much from her, and have watched the school grow tremendouslyunder her guidance.

This is what I would like to tell my students: 'Reach high for the stars. Dream big, for a dream precedes every goal. Make each day of your life a master piece.'

Mrs. Elizabeth Thomas

Teacher

I am not only a proud a parent, but also a joyful teacher of NDA. My journey with Notre Dame Academy began in the year 2007, and it was a learning-cum-teaching program, as I never had the experience of teaching tiny tots before. It was not just about imparting knowledge, but developing and experiencing the mind of a little child. It is something that requires immense patience, great understanding, a child-like heart and a playful nature.

It is a joy and pride to be a part of Notre Dame, witnessing its gradual growth from a small convent-bound school to the full-fledged institution we have now. I admire the perfection, the discipline and the punctuality with which every work is done here.

Notre Dame Academy can be compared to a beautiful garden with many tender tiny saplings which require efficient gardeners who know how to nurture, prune, dig around and help them grow. The teachers of NDA aim at the wholesome development of each student. In the uphill march of nation-building, NDA forms persons who are skilled and committed to journey together to fight injustice and corruption, and to uphold honesty, integrity, justice and peace - all for the greater honour and glory of God.

Mrs. Shalet Bastyva

Teacher

Notre Dame Academy, managed by the Sisters of Notre Dame keeps it doors open to students of every caste, creed and colour. The motto of the school is "Truth and Universal Love". Faith in God and in the service of humanity are the ideals placed before the students. As a writer has put it "All liberal religions have great and abiding principles which are their corner-stones, the brotherhood of man, the fatherhood of God, the perfectibility of man, the superiority of reason to superstition, the presence in the universe of certain undergirding laws of justice, goodness mercy and love". To realize these greatideals requires continuous and disciplined effort. It was with such vision in mind that our dear principal Sr. Manisha put in her best efforts to build up an institution that would educate the native children. Today we salute her with the pride of innumerable accomplishments in various walks of life.

Notre Dame Academy has a group of loving and dedicated teachers. The school always does well in sports and other co-curricular activities. The school is proud to have such wonderful students. I'am proud to be a teacher at Notre Dame Academy and to be a part of this loving family.

Mrs. Chitra Rajan

Teacher

Notre Dame Academy is the result of a dream, a passion, to establish and create a brighter world for children through the system of education. Under the guidance of Sr. Manisha, the sisters of Notre Dame, and a group of committed parents, this dream became a reality and Notre Dame Academy was born.

My association with Notre Dame Academy started when I admitted my children to the school - and within months, I too became a part of the NDA family. The children of NDA are carefully moulded to be independent thinkers and thoughtful learners. They are helped to give their best in the tasks that they undertake. Students confidently question, reason, voice opinions and solve problems. This in fact reflects their love for learning.

One of the most important participants of the NDA community is its parents. They contribute time and knowledge, and are valuable resources with varied perspectives to enrich the education process. NDA believes in nurturing young minds through holistic education that enables every student to excel and serve. Becoming a teacher at NDA has been a uniquely rewarding experience. Our principal,Sr. Manisha, has been a mentor and a philosopher in guiding me as a teacher, and her constant encouragement and guidance has made my experience with NDA a truly rewarding one.

Notre Dame Academy is strategically located in a serene environment without the din and bustle of the Bangalore traffic. The open space, play area and the school building with more light and breathing space makes it conducive for conducting classes. The school does not compromise in giving equal priority to academics, moral values, soft skills and physical activities to complete the education holistically.

As a teacher of Junior 1 class, I am trulyblessed to experience the love and affection of the little children. Report card days after every term are a good formal platform for teachers and parents to interact and exchange feedback, and answer any queries.

Our principal, Sr. Manisha, pays attention to details to bring utmost perfection in all the school matters, andher endurance and perseverance in co-ordinating and accomplishing tasks are commendable. The school Sports Day exemplifies this ardent professionalism. Sister mentors and guides the teachers in successfully completing all the school activities. I am so grateful to be a part of this Notre Dame family.

Notre Dame Academy is set in a serene environment. Removed from the distracting gaze of an expanding Bangalore city, one feels freshness on stepping inside the sprawling campus. Imparting education that is value-based, yet academically relevant to our times, cannot demand a better backdrop.

Education in its fullness at Notre Dame is not just academic, but is combined with individual development, the basis of which is universal values. These are instilled in the day to day life of the school through an innovative morning assembly. The school song alone is capable of awakening a fervent love for God and a desire to lead a life of simplicity and honour. The children of the school are carefully guided and groomed under the loving and capable hands of the team of dedicated teachers. The focus and attention of our principal, Sr. Manisha, has meticulously been on increasing and augmenting the efficiency and effectiveness of the students and staff with timely words of advice and encouragement. All these and more make this school a fine place to be in.

Our students have the attitude and thirst to learn. They work hard and are willing to help others. They are keen to participate in extra-curricular activities. They come well-prepared to attend classes, which is a delight to any teacher.

Parents at Notre Dame are very supportive and co-operative, and that helps us as teachers, to facilitate the child's learning. They are always ready to discuss their ward's strengths and weaknesses. They keep the lines of communication open throughout the school year and let the teacher know of any changes to the child's life. If the child is experiencing difficulties, the parents inform us well in advance so that we can help students overcome the hurdle.

The keen involvement of parents is unique to this school and that makes teaching at NDA a great experience for me.

Mrs. Sangeetha Lawrence

Imparting values and knowledge from one generation to the next ought to be the highest honour and the most important responsibility anyone could have. At Notre Dame Academy, our highly committed and trained teachers nurture these values in the young ones commendably well.

Helping children realize their potential brings great joy to every teacher. Children are so valuable and precious, and teachers do learn greatly from them too. To see our young ones grow, experience new things, and become the adults that will take on this world in the years to come, is the greatest reward. Bestowed upon us is the great responsibility of moulding and guiding our future citizens. Having the opportunity do this at NDA is a privilege and an honour.

I joined Notre Dame Academy in the month of June in 2011. I feel immensely proud to be associated with such a disciplined and reputed school. It is my honour to teach such wonderful, obedient, humble and disciplined children. Discipline, which is the backbone of any organization, can be best experienced in this school - thanks to our principal Sister Manisha, who involves herself in each and every activity of the school. I really appreciate the way sister addresses the children during the morning assembly. She even gets into the minute details such as, the way they talk, walk and write, and also emphasizes on moral values.

Like children, the parents here too are co-operative and humble. They always have valuable suggestions and compliments for the teachers. They volunteer for all the functions and activities organized in the school. I am confident that every child of this school will surely contribute to the progress of our nation in the best possible way.
