An educator by profession and a trainer by passion, Seetha Murty comes with diverse strengths, which can enrich Institutions and Organization who are striving for excellence.
Armed with Masters in Political Science and another in Education, she believes that her experiential education comes from teaching in different socio-cultural and geographical contexts of India.

As the Director of Education in Silver Oaks International Schools in Hyderabad, Bangalore & Visakhapatnam, she assumes responsibility for the learning of 4500 students, 400 teachers and the onerous duty of creating the destiny of the nation through children in the classrooms.

Her 12 years of association with IBO and experience of implementing the IB Programs in all the 4 schools she heads.

With her experience in CBSE schools across the country, she developed a fine balance between National Curriculum Framework of India and IB Programme of Inquiry which is conceptually trans disciplinary and ideologically student centric.

This critical blending has evidently groomed gifted learners which is duly recognized by National Institute of Advanced Studies. Supported by NIAS, Silver Oaks now runs centres for gifted children.

Recognizing her abilities and commitment to IB programmes, she was selected to be trained by the IBO as a workshop leader and school visit team member. For the last 7 years, she has been leading IB workshops in India and outside. Organized by IBO, she led workshops in Singapore, Hongkong, Indonesia and India.

She has been invited to present at IBO Global Conferences in Singapore, Japan and Malaysia.

She was invited to present at RIE Mysore and Bhopal, IIT Delhi and many forums within India.

Besides leading IB Workshops, she has been invited to lead training programmes for the Senior Management teams in IT Firms, Infra Companies and NGOs within India.

In the drive to identify leaders from the civic society, Times of India recognized her as one of the promising leaders in their Lead India Contest.

While working primarily in International schools, her commitment to transform India through education made her take up responsibility of Community schools run by RDF, Prajwala and NICE. By motivating her students and teachers through a CSR called Me and My Country, we grow together, she raised funds amounting to 1.4 Crores in the last 13 years for the education of less privileged children.

She trains the teachers in these schools and works with them to develop contextual curriculum.

Destiny of a nation begins in it’s classrooms. It is this belief, which drives her to make schools as ecosystems for inspired learning.
