Where everyone wanted to send their children to topnotch educational institutions, very few qualified, passionate individuals wanted to engage in education as a career. In response to that thought, Raisa Pandey started her career as a teacher in 2012, upon completing her Masters in Literature in English from Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), New Delhi. She joined Ullens in 2015 where over the years she’s taught English B, English A – Language and Literature, Theatre and Theory of Knowledge. She’s served as the Head of Department for Languages and Arts, the Extended Essay Coordinator and is currently one of the IBDP Coordinators. An avid reader with a knack for editing, she’s supervised Poetry Clubs, the Journalism Club and has edited several Yearbooks in addition to collaborating with the Theatre Club as the Technical Director for two years before directing two successful plays as part of the annual production for the DP students. Raisa’s quest for learning perfectly complements the IB philosophy of being open-minded, kind, communicative, critical – thinkers and she hopes to be able to move ahead with this driving force, in the days to come.
