Monad: What are the parts of the existing education that you like least? VM: The fact that the current education system doesn’t support the freedom of expression. Both teachers and students are limited by the rigid curriculum and framework. The rigidity of curriculum in some schools made the students to close in front of creativity and expression of their own individuality – so the biggest lack of current traditional education can in many lead to closing of mind and hearts. Monad: When did you decide to become a teacher? VM: Oh, from very early age, perhaps since I was 5 or 6 years old. I was an early child I was reading and writing from the age of 4. I have since very early age been taught to be very perfectionist and I enjoy that very much, doing everything to perfection. This has also helped me as teacher having the patience to see others become perfect in their skill – I like to see students doing the best they can.
