Kalpana Kishorekumar is the Head of Humanities Department at Chung Hwa Middle School, Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei Darussalam: "Teaching is the most challenging profession in the world as it is all about developing skills in students. I strongly believe that 'a child without education is like a bird without wings'!

I've active, confident students as technology-integrated lessons have blazed up their learning appetite."
