Devendra has been a teacher-practitioner for 22 years now. I love to teach, and am most excited by the opportunity to ignite an interest in the subject in a young student. Challenging students with age appropriate problems and then helping them to navigate the path towards the solution is the most satisfying reward for me.
I believe in experiential learning. By doing things with our own hands, bodies, mind, and by getting soaked in this experience fully, we learn the fastest. When space for reflection is provided, this experience has the potential to get converted into a new learning for the student.
