Mr. Bhasin considers Acorn to be his “home away from home”. As experienced Yoga instructor, Harish discovered that children in his extended family loved coming to him for help with their homework. He found this to be so satisfying that he became an elementary school teacher.
Harish finds that by bringing Yoga into his classroom it help the children focus, concentrate, and build peace from inside out.
He is very impressed by the compassion of the teachers at Acorn, and finds the concept of mixed age classrooms with children staying with the same teacher for three years to be a great opportunity to understand intimately each child’s developmental levels, learning styles, and family support systems. This is in keeping with the Montessori philosophy of developing the whole personality of the child, not merely his or her intellect. Mr. Hari wants his students to be motivated learners, and for them to grasp a strong foundation of academic concepts.
In addition to yoga, Harish also enjoys music, cooking and reading.
