Faculty

Education is the key to success in life, and teachers make a lasting impact in the lives of their students.

Solomon Ortiz

Aware that a teacher is like a potter who gives shape and life to the clay in his hands, we at Shemford hire the best possible talent to guide our students through their formative years. Our faculty comprises highly qualified, trained and experienced teachers committed to our vision of empowering our children for a bright future.

However, we strongly feel that the best, and a very important, part of our faculty are the parents of our students.

There’s no question that a great teacher can make a huge difference in a student’s achievement, and we need to recruit, train and reward more such teachers. But here’s what some new studies are also showing: We need better parents. Parents more focused on their children’s education can also make a huge difference in a student’s achievement.

Children now-a-days have a multitude of options and avenues available to them. All they require is knowledge of these avenues and ways of pursuing them. Professionals from various fields are invited to give talks and run workshops for staff and students to introduce them to the options available.

However, we strongly feel that the best, and a very important, part of our faculty are the parents of our students.
