NPS ensures the holistic development of all the students with the support and expertise of a team of highly qualified, experienced and constantly trained faculty.
“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life”, said Confucius. He might have well added, “also choose a PLACE you love”. And that PLACE for me is NPS. I am now close to a decade old here. I have grown each day, both personally as well as professionally. The support that I have received here from the management and my colleagues has been phenomenal. Quality and creativity is truly welcomed, recognised and respected. I am indeed blessed that I am paid to do a job I love in the place I love.
We have an in-house training team for the purpose of training our faculty and this team is headed by none other than our Director Dr. Bindu Hari. Training programs cover a wide range of topics from behaviour management to effective classroom management and procedures.
There has never been a dull moment in NPS Gopalapuram. There has only been constant learning and immense growth. The support I have received from the Management and my colleagues has been phenomenal. I look forward to many more beautiful years in NPS.

These 19 years of teaching at NPS has groomed me to a whole new level. My journey from a teacher to a coordinator infused a new set of responsibilities involving Teacher-Teacher; Teacher-parent; Teacher-Student relationship. It is never an easy task to sculpt, mould and build a successful individual. I took it as a challenge and a privilege to accept and excel in this endeavour.
As a teacher I have always yearned for success in every child. Children have always fascinated and kindled my imagination. They never cease to amaze me and in them I see a whole new world where I flourish, grow, and remain ever young. I still believe in the dictum “Teaching is a continuous learning process with no commas and full stops".
Mrs. J. Sujatha Margaret
The thirty and odd years that I have been in NPS Gopalapuram is a continuing magnificent success story in my life and teaching career. I had the privilege of getting a plethora of opportunities to organise programmes, groom multitudes of students in public speaking and dramatics, and now to head the Department of English.
The golden moments of my stay in this citadel of learning handling children transcending generation gap have always been heart-warming and pleasantly haunt my mind, even as I continue to enrich and enhance my professional skills to move ahead of the times. I have always tried, as an ideal teacher, to inspire hope, ignite the imagination and instil a love of learning in children.
I am sure that just as the name of NPS Gopalapuram, has been emblazoned in my heart, the glory of NPS will forever shine radiantly in the educational firmament of NPS. Thank you NPS Chennai, for all the precious moments I spent here in your precincts.
Mrs. Saguna Sudhindar,
H.O.D English Dept
With a humble beginning way back in 1978, my journey of teaching at NPS has been a wonderful and fulfilling experience.
An ideal teacher teaches from the heart, not from the book. Deep insight, innovative spirit, creative acumen, and efficiency have always been the hallmarks of our work culture. Besides core teaching, I had always donned the role of a helper, facilitator and guide to tap the whole gamut of learning potentials of a student.
Each year’s experience enriched and enabled me to better interact with the children and guide them effectively and efficiently. I also utilized the golden opportunity to nurture our cultural and traditional values and strove for the integrated personality development of children in all positive ways.
I thank the management of the school for the encouragement, support and opportunities given to me so far and more particularly a participatory role in leading and taking the institution forward to still greater heights.
Mrs. Jayanthi S,
Authentic learning is real-life learning. We provide students with a high-quality learning experience in a safe environment - providing them with opportunities to practice skills of enquiry, values analysis and problem-solving in everyday situations.

My relationship with NPS has had a very positive and long-lasting implication for my academic, social and personal development. NPS provides high quality academic instruction appropriate to the student’s level. NPS has a supportive teacher-student relationship which will help students’ attain higher levels of achievement.
Mrs. Devaki Priya N
I am very proud to be part of NPS faculty because it has provided me a conducive environment to develop emotionally and intellectually.
The school has given me a lot of scope for self-development. It has provided a platform to learn and apply effective teaching strategies to develop useful collaborative learning in the classroom. Our curriculum encourages the growth of all aspects of learning through appropriate activities.
Mrs. Hemalatha Michael
I have experienced many great moments in my teaching career spanning more than a decade. I have learnt so much about teaching and dealing with students; that every student is different and no two students react in the same way. If we meet them half way through and motivate them, we can go a long way towards a more effective classroom and learning experience.
NPS has given me the platform to grow as a teacher as well as a coordinator. I came into teaching with my own set of very specific goals about how I wanted to develop as a teacher but I am glad that I have far exceeded my expectations. It is a privilege to be part of such a close knit community as well as a dedicated, passionate and dynamic team of teachers.
Mrs. Saraswathi R R
NPS has nurtured me and has given me immense confidence to deal with different situations. Being among students has kept me young at heart. NPS has inspired me to be more patient, approachable to students, thus making them feel more secure. I thank this institution for instilling into me the basic qualities a teacher should have, especially in moulding the future citizens of our country.
Mrs. Jayasri Ravi
