Palak always wanted to pursue media as a field of education to enlighten the darkest section of society. She pursued Bachelors in Electronic media from Amity University and completed her Master in Mass Communication in 2012 from Makkhanlal Chaturvedi University, Bhopal, as a university topper. She served as Program Head in the prestigious United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in 2010 for developing Community Radio Stations all across Madhya Pradesh to raise awareness on the reproductive health issues and curtail mortality rates amongst the women population of tribes of Madhya Pradesh, especially dealing with Baigas , Gonds and Bheels.

A multifaceted professional, Palak ventured into the education sector after her marriage with edupreneur Mr. Udit Gaikwad in 2012. She became the Director for Little Kingdom Senior Secondary chain of schools focusing relentlessly on improving teaching and learning with very effective professional development of all staff. Her restlessness for redefining the education system drives her research in the alternate methodologies and pedagogies to provide the right structure and direction to tackle the difficult process of encouraging student learning and growth.

Palak leads her school with a mission statement of “Students First”. An ardent proponent of experiential learning, she partnered with experts and invested lot of her energies in the formulation of a curriculum that empowers the uniqueness of each student and makes him/her an achiever. As famous educator Dr. John Hibben had said, Education is the ability to meet life situations, Palak stresses on imparting Life Skills Based Education to her pupils through her curriculum to enable them to deal effectively with demands and challenges of everyday life.

She has introduced innovative activities like STEAM Lab in her school. She also associated herself with groups like Jodogyan as a practice to find new workable solutions and making Math an interesting concept based subject. Similarly, she has introduced Giant Microbes (plush scientific toys) as part of classroom teaching to make biology an interactive and engaging subject.

I firmly believe that every child has the potential for success. Such innovative teaching protocols facilitate the different learning styles in the learners.
