Mrs.Bernadette, a Dedicated Teacher and an Able Administrator began her alma mater as a post Graduate Teacher in English in June 1989. Her love for teaching nurtured right from her school days when she had an exposure to the atmosphere of English and an opportunity to learn values. Since then her Teachers identified her as an exemplary student and that helped her to discover an excellent teacher in her. From then, she had been working in pursuit of the ideals of an excellent teacher.
Her dedication to this field, proved itself in her promotion as Principal in a span of four years. From June 1996 till date she has served as a very responsible and duty bound Principal. During her tenure of work she has brought and is bringing laurels and credentials to the institutions.
