Who is Teacher Mala?
The Transformation of a Bullied Child (Princess Mala) to a Smart Teacher (Teacher Mala)
One upon a time, there lived a little girl named Princess Mala. Princess Mala is an Indian, born and raised in Manila, Philippines. She has 2 older siblings and is the youngest among the three girls.
Princess Mala was very close to her mother. Her real name is Sujita but they call her Mala. Mala, in the Indian language means a string of beads. Since, she was the youngest and her age gap between her siblings was 10 and 8 years respectively, she was very clingy to her parents. Due to this, her father felt Mala was the perfect name for her.
When Princess Mala was born, her parents were not rich. Her father had just started his buy and sell business. They were living in a small apartment along Singalong Street. They were from hand to mouth. They had no extra money for tutoring and yet the parents were able to raise three children who were scholars in the family.
Since Princess Mala was the youngest, the two older sisters would play with each other and their friends. They would leave her alone. As a result, Princess Mala became a very shy and quiet girl. She was all by herself. She developed an inferiority complex. Her self-esteem and self-confidence became shattered.
When her friends and classmates noticed this, they started calling her names, making nasty comments and bullying her. She had to deal with all this. This worsened the situation for her. She isolated herself from everyone.
At the age of 7, her family transferred to Jakarta, Indonesia. At first Princess Mala was very happy. She felt that the new environment would be good for her but little did she know that she would experience new challenges. Language was a very big barrier. She had to learn the Indonesian language.
In a way, the situation became better because her parents enrolled her in and Indian co-ed school. She was able to communicate with her classmates and made some very good friends. She is still in touch with them till today.
After 5 years, her father had to transfer to Singapore due to visa purposes. This was a new and very big adjustment for her. She was placed in a public school with all Chinese people. She had difficulty in adjusting. Here, Princess Mala experienced name-calling again. This time she gained so much weight that the male classmates started making fun of her. Her grades started slipping. The school principal had to call the attention of her parents. Her father was so worried. He knew that Princess Mala was suffering emotionally. He decided to help her.
Every morning, her father and Princess Mala would sit together and review the lessons of the previous day. If she did not understand it, her father would explain everything to her. Gradually, her grades improved. At the end of the year, she received a scholarship from the school. She was known as “The Best Progressive Student” of the year. She was able to maintain the award for all the 4 years. Her self-esteem and confidence improved. The name-calling and bullying stopped.
Again, after 4 years, her father told Princess Mala that they needed to go back to Manila, Philippines. This again was a big adjustment for her. She was used to a British system of education. She had to adjust to the American system of education. This time, she did not feel discouraged. She knew that she will be able to adjust so long her father was willing to help her.
Her parents enrolled her in Assumption College, Makati. She took up Economics. Princess Mala graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in Economics. She then worked for Landmark Corporation for 2 years as a Credit Clerk.
While in Landmark, she developed a passion for Computers. She father encouraged her to take up a degree in Computers. After researching, she decided to take up Master of Computers in Information Management at the Ateneo Professional School. She transferred from Landmark to First Datacorp and worked as a Computer Programmer for 6 years.
One day, Princess Mala received a call, while at work, saying that her mother had fractured her hip. She was forced to resign and chose to take took care of her mom. She also helped her father in the T-shirt business.
After 7 years, Princess Mala felt that she needed to grow professionally. She did not know what to do. She kept on praying to the Lord for guidance on what she should do.
One day, she went to the Village Association Administration office to mail a letter. She met an Indian looking man and asked him if he was Indian. He was carrying a bunch of flyers of a school to be distributed. They struck a conversation and she was invited to apply in their school.
The next day, Princess Mala submitted her resume and she was called for an interview. She passed the interview with flying colors. Now, from Princess Mala, she became Teacher Mala. This is how her teaching career began.
Teacher Mala worked as a Computer teacher in small school in Makati. On her second year, she taught as well as took up the Teacher’s Certificate Course (TCP) at De La Salle University in Manila.
While in working in the small school, Teacher Mala wanted to teach English and Math. However, her boss did not permit her to do so. At that time, the school had an educational center. This gave Teacher Mala the idea to look into the possibility of acquiring a franchise and putting up an educational center from the same franchisor.
After finishing her TCP, she opened her educational center in Pasong Tamo, Makati. This is where she learned about how to unleash and nurture a child’s potential. After 2 ½ years, she gave up her franchise and converted it into a tutorial center.
This is where she actually gained the real experience in teaching and nurturing her students. As she taught her students, she was learning new things and applied it on herself. As her skills improved, she gradually regained her self-confidence and her self-esteem got boosted. She also discovered all the secrets about Raising Sraight A+ Students. She is very passionate about it and would like to share it with all parents.
In 2012, Teacher Mala wrote and published a book ,“Discipline Your Child”, under the pen name of Laxmi Mitra. This opened a new opportunity for her. In 2015, she was given the opportunity to be textbook writer for Glad Tidings Publishing. She wrote the Math Preschool Series (Nursery, Kindergarten and Prep Levels) under Math Applied for Zeal and Excellence. She just finished writing the Grade 4 level. Currently she is writing a book on “How to Raise a Smart Kid in this Digital Age.”
Right now, Teacher Mala teaches over 100+ students, including students with special needs. She is very passionate about Raising Smart Kids (Students). Her tutorial center is known for its quality. She believes that every child is unique and has something special to contribute and no child is difficult to handle. “You just have to know how to unleash the child’s potential”, she says. Due to her life experiences, she is able to understand and feel how a child feels. Her vision is to “Make a difference is every child’s life”.
This is how Princess Mala, a shy and quiet girl transformed into a smart and confident teacher, helping children to achieve things in life.
