Teachers @ Pune:
After finishing schooling, Anjali joined Balgangadhar Junior College in Ambejogai town. She took up arts and loved psychology. Other subjects that she took in college were Pali, Marathi and history. Her mother used to work as a cook in a hostel in Ambejogai town – and both would travel together during that time. Anjali did well in her board exams – she came first in Beed district.
She was awarded a Dhirubhai Ambani scholarship – and given the financial condition of the family at that time, that scholarship really meant a lot to her. Next, she moved to the government college in Vaijapur, Aurangabad and joined the D.Ed program there. Anjali’s dream of staying in a hostel finally came true here. Her college hostel was 2 km from the college – and she enjoyed cycling from the hostel to the college every day.
She returned home after her D.Ed – and found that her mom’s health had deteriorated. Her mom’s wish was to see Anjali settled as soon as possible. In 2012. just after finishing college, Anjali got married. Her first kid, Pratik, was born in 2013. This did not let her stop her own education. She finished her BA from a college in Latur. She joined Peepal Tree School in 2016 and has been in charge of Jr KG since then. In between, she took a 2 year break to have her second son. Apart from teaching, Anjali loves to stitch. Very soon, students at the school are going to wear uniforms that have been designed by her.
Nisha is the youngest of 4 siblings – two sisters and two brothers. She was born in 1987 – and at that time the family stayed in Fatima nagar. Education was at St. Patrick’s. She liked English and Math, but geography is something that she could not get along with. Her elder sister got married when Nisha was in grade 7. She went on to Poona Junior College and joined their arts program. Around the time Nisha was finishing college, her mom passed away. Family financial health had suffered along with her mom’s health, so Nisha decided to do a Diploma in Software testing.
Her first job was at Hotel Shriman in Bundgarden as a receptionist. She switched soon to a telephone Yellow pages company, AskMe, as a telecaller. Her career break came when she was offered a job as a technical support executive at Tata e2e services. Those were the days when the Tatas had just taken over VSNL, which was the leading Internet services provider in those days. Nisha would help trouble shoot customer complaints remotely. She worked for 6 years over there. That’s where she met with Swapnil, her soon to be better half.
The duo changed jobs together – first moving to a startup in Mumbai for a few months. Both did not like Mumbai life too much, so they shifted back to Pune and joined Synechron Technologies in the QA function. Nisha was on a roll in her career – but had to leave in 2011 – when her son, Shaurya, was born. She took a break and decided that she needed to be at a place which gave her some time to spend with her son. In 2015, she joined a teacher training program at Saraswati School in Kalewadi – and the school was so impressed with her, that it offered her a job even before she had finished the course. She stayed there for 2 years before switching to Vibgyor School, where she worked from 2017 to 2019. She joined Peepal tree school in 2019. She enjoys teaching English and Math. She is also taking care of her own education – and has enrolled for a BA (Psychology) program at IGNOU.
After finishing her engineering course, she joined a US based start-up in a customer support role. To upgrade her IT tech skills, in Jan 2013, she joined a one year CDAC program after quitting her start-up job. Throughout her college days, Komal had been taking tuitions at home, and in 2014, on completion of her CDAC course, she got an offer to teach IT at Ishwar Prem Vidya Mandir in Indore. In 2015, she got married to Ritesh, an IT engineer who was then working in Indore itself. She had to take a long break from teaching starting 2016, when her son Daivik was born.
In the meantime, in 2017, Ritesh found a job in Pune. When Daivik was 2 years old, Komal shifted base to Pune along with him. They were initially staying at Baner, before the couple bought their own house in Pimple Nilakh. She came to Peepal Tree first as a parent – and though Daivik moved out after his Sr KG, Komal has stayed on. She takes the Sr KG class.
