Teaching is a natural passion for Harbans. She has more than three decades experience, from pre-schoolers to teenagers, and she has also taught adults. On the first day of school, Harbans always tell her students that their classroom is their second home and that their class is an extension of their family. She believes this is just as important as creating an exceptional curriculum.
