Middle School Coordinator
Teaching is not a professional decision I made, but a calling I answered to.
My purpose of becoming a teacher was, and still remains, an unquenchable quest to make students believe that they are unique gifts to the world. Each one, irrespective of their academic capacities, belongs and contributes to the making of a thriving, wonderful world. And each one significantly, holds a very special place in the hearts of their teachers. I aim to create, through the medium of education, a society of fearless, empathetic, confident minds that do not get rattled by numbers and competition, but choose to grow each day and never stop learning.

“Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow. ” – Anthony J. D’Angelo
Hi, I Jyoti Mishra, am proud to be a part of Campion School.
It is a delight to have been a part of this prestigious institution since 2005. It has been an honour to serve the institution and to promote its motto of “Gaudium in Veritate” by spreading the Joy in Truth.
Becoming a teacher lets you impart life lessons they will never forget and puts you in a position to influence the child’s decisions, behaviours, strengths, weaknesses and imagination. Becoming a teacher lets you take part in shaping the next generation. I enjoy teaching as it is a source of my energy and enthusiasm.
I aim at helping my students learn better communication, soft skills, intra personal skill, develop a sense of self-esteem and Self-worth.
My aim for the institution is to create leadership skills, foster qualities of co-operation, tolerance and dedication.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE : 21 Years
INTERESTS: Poetry / script writing, Drama direction, to organise poetry and debate competitions, Guidance and counseling (I feel students feel a motherly touch with me that’s why they share their feelings with me)
I have selected teaching as my profession because I love children. When I am surrounded by them, I feel tremendous satisfaction. I think that the progress of any country depends on education. The children are the future citizens of our country and I am happy that I am a part of their life. My teaching subject is Hindi which is our national language and I feel that we, Indian should be very proud of our national language and we should respect it. People think that Hindi is a little difficult but it depends on the way you teach them. Now the students take interest in learning Hindi. There are many students who have shown tremendous interest in Hindi after encouragement and improved the result as well.
Ms. Melinda Fernandes
“To teach is to touch a life forever“
I have been a witness to this motto and hope that my students, too, experience the same. Teaching wasn’t my initial idea of a lifelong career however God had his plans for me and I found myself drawn to this profession. I, now, consider it to be my greatest joy, privilege and honour. My aim as a teacher is to enable my students to be able to learn with passion and enthusiasm; all while facilitating them to become the best version of themselves. I wish to continue to learn and grow in my professional and personal self so that I can help pave the way for my flourishing students. Campion has been the wind beneath my wings. I am truly fortunate to have found my second home in Campion. My colleagues and my students are what make this less of a job and more a vocation.
Ms. Shweta Carneiro
I found my passion for Mathematics in Class 9 when my teacher encouraged me to write proofs of theorems on my own rather than referring to the books directly. I pursued my graduation from St. Xaviers College, Mumbai and post-graduation from Mumbai University, Kalina in Mathematics and developed a liking for Pure Mathematics. That’s when I decided to be a Mathematics teacher. I completed my B.Ed from St. Xavier’s Institute of Education.
I love Mathematics for the logical nature of the subject and I believe that it cannot be completely understood and enjoyed with merely practising the steps of solving and ignoring the concept. Therefore, I strive to explain the concepts to my students and try my best to help students love Mathematics the way my teachers helped me.
Physics is a subject that is considered difficult by the students but it is applicable to literally everything around us and that’s what I try to make my students realise and enjoy the beauty of the subject.
The resilience that Mathematics and Physics have as subjects is something that I would like to inculcate in my students as a teacher of Mathematics and Physics.
Ms. Shannen D’Souza
Why I chose teaching: I want to be able to help children grow and blossom while on their educational journey. I also wanted to become a teacher because I know how important my teachers where for me. I know they played a very important role in my life, and encouraged me to reach my full potential and I can’t think of any job as important to society as teaching.
My motto as a teacher:
- In every lesson give yourself the opportunity to learn from the class in the same way that they learn from you.
Aim and Ambition as a Teacher:
My and ambition as a teacher is to
- Bring happiness, joy and understanding in the lives of my students.
- To make a positive difference in my students life by instilling in them values and knowledge.
- To encourage my students to have an opinion and perspective of their own.
How I perceive myself as a Teacher in the future:
I love this job! Hopefully I will become a great teacher over the years, someone the students will remember in good means, like someone who had a good impact on them.
Your goal for Campion School as a Teacher:
My goal for Campion School as a teacher would be to
- Instill Positive Action principles into students’ cognitive, affective and behavioral learning domains.
- To develop well-rounded students: including physically, intellectually, socially and emotionally.
- To promote good mental health in students
Ms. Beverley D’Souza
After my Bachelor’s degree from St Xavier’s College and Masters through SNDT , I explored the corporate world, Public speaking and Hospitality industry for a year.
I soon realised that I was happiest and most comfortable when surrounded by children.
Two years later, after completing my B Ed., Campion school became a dream come true. I am now continuing to grow and learn with my students as I push them to dream, explore, reinvent and achieve for themselves.
Off campus I enjoy trekking, traveling, dancing, tasting different cuisines, visits to book stores and libraries and rendering my services to the community.
My aim in Campion school as a teacher is to create a love for learning creating an eagerness for the students to come to school rather than a dread.
Ms. Nisha Susan Mathews
I realised my passion for teaching at a very young age when I was given a chance to mentor a group of classmates in Grade 10. From then to now, what keeps me ticking is the fact that I have been able to make a difference in other people’s lives.
I see myself, first as a lifelong learner and then as an educator who will be well equipped to train her pupils to face the challenges of life. As a teacher at Campion School, my goal is to join in the common mission of creating, thinking and compassionate individuals who will make valuable contributions to the society.
My motto as a teacher is to ‘Never ever give up on a single child !
Ms. Gyzel Rodrigues
Becoming a teacher was not destined.
It was fate! After clearing UPSC in my stream I somewhat couldn’t adjust to the work profile and hence thought of choosing a different path.
Coming from a family of Teacher’s, I decided to try that profile, and well who knew during the course itself I would be offered a job here at Campion selected by the most loved former principal Mr.Paul Machado. I never knew this so called untold profession in my fate would be the most loved and right decision I had made.
So, here I am, as a Teacher still at my first job giving my best and trying to live up to my boys expectations ans loving each day amongst them.
Motto as a Teacher:
‘Every child deserves a champion—an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.’
– Rita Pierson
If you read this Motto, it is very simple but it withholds power that can transform a child from being an average student to an extra ordinary student and we at Campion strive to work on that.
That is my Motto, I strive to make them analyze because thinking is what all do.
I make them apply because understanding is what all do and overall I make them create because learning is what all do.
Aim- To build a society of sincere, smart and sensitive individuals.
Ambition- To transform our boys into whom we call ‘someone to become huge.
How I perceive myself as a Teacher in the future:
Not a teacher but a facilitator, friend, and guide.
I perceive myself to be that teacher who my boys can walk up to and ask anything, share anything and talk anything.
Together with them we will explore those wonders that maybe never even was known.
They will grow, as men of honor who will transform everyone’s thinking.
I see myself as a technological, professional grown individual to help my boys grow in a more concise and precise manner.
Goal for Campion School as a Teacher:
Campion school being the best always will continue to remain so. But together including all various professions we can soar to heights never thought possible before.
My goal for Campion is to evolve into a school which makes headlines for every successful path it chooses and reach a stage where all look up to it as a school reaching new dimensions.

“Teach the way you’d want to be taught.”
I strongly believe that each student learns best when he actively participates in his own learning. Hence, I always strive to engage my students in playful learning activities that will help them enhance their learning experiences and help them retain matter learnt with ease.
To me, each of my students is special and I aim to know them better. As an English and Social studies teacher, I enjoy having fruitful conversations with my students on topics and subjects that are important and relevant to them, thus enabling me to understand their feelings and their perception of the world around them.
Ms. Kelly Gracias
Motto: “Inspire and Believe” Strive to do your best, no matter what they do. Teach them to be kind and different from the rest.
LOVE, KINDNESS AND MY SMILE has been my strength since I was a child. I truly believe that one small act of kindness can change the world. Life has been a great teacher to me and being a part of our parish outreach program has helped me discover my passion for this profession. As a teacher, I truly believe that each child is a God’s gift, unique and different. I believe I have been bestowed with the gift to mould young and creative minds.
With the rapidly changing and unprecedented times that we are currently living in, my role as a teacher has changed immensely. My aim as a teacher is to impart values and life skills to my students by providing them with enriching experiences, fostering their creativity and providing a safe space for them to acknowledge differences. I like to maintain a relationship of love and respect with my students. It is truly an ecstatic feeling of nurturing my students and watching them transform into young men of competence, conscience and of great character.
Campion has been an answered prayer for me and as a teacher, I would like to shower my students with virtues that would last a lifetime, to teach them to stand with the marginalized, to believe in themselves, to be innovative, creative and to follow the Campion Crest “ JOY IN TRUTH.”
Ms Seetal Tuscano
Children are the Architects of the world’s future. The classroom presents the students with an environment not just to learn subjects, but also to learn to interact, collaborate, listen, understand, observe, communicate, thus teaching all the skills necessary for the student’s future.
Being a teacher gives me the opportunity to play a key role in shaping these creators of tomorrow. As a teacher, I get to mould the minds of each of these young ones by teaching them good values, inculcating good behaviour, teaching discipline and impart knowledge.
It is imperative to me that I create passion in my students for learning so that they become interested to pursue new learnings which will help them grow and be independent.
For this, I strive to assess the individual learning needs and grasping capability of my students and deliver my classes in a way to provide an impactful, effective and an engaging learning experience to my students.

” Knowledge without practice is useless. Practice without knowledge is dangerous” – Confucius
I believe that knowledge without application is useless. I challenge my students and thereby help them to grow and discover themselves.
There might be many who fear my subjects. Who might even hate it. Yes! Mathematics and Science.
In today’s changing world where information is easily available. I teach them to understand, analyse, apply and finally create something new and unique.
My purpose is to create a love for learning, So that they remain life long learners.
