Who is FKS

Shailaja Rao

Founder, Principal

Shailaja Rao is first and last a teacher at heart. Her love with teaching that began in 1987 as a nursery school teacher never waned in her checkered career graph. Shailaja is a Post Graduate in Child Development from Nagpur University. She went from being Lecturer in Child Development & Psychology at Vizag’s St Joseph’s College for Women to begin Senior Teacher at a Computer firm in the Gulf. Having experienced the open and spontaneous teaching style in schools overseas, she was inspired to start living her dream. And thus was born FKS, or The Future Kid’s School in the February of 1997.

Shailaja is happiest when interacting with her students. Her energy is infectious and children and grownups alike get caught up with her unstoppable enthusiasm. She is constantly in search of newer and more efficient ideas to show her children that the world is a place of great excitement and that challenges are in fact opportunities in disguise. She works 24 hours a day and wishes for a few more. She is a person of many talents: organizer, lateral thinker, mathematician, musician, and artist. For Shailaja, there’s no mountain too big to climb and no ocean too deep to cross. And there’s always a tomorrow to look forward to.

Walk into the kitchen, and along with the aromatic smells, a warm, welcoming smile greets you. Bustling around with an efficient bunch of helpers, Mrs. Rao – “Amma” or Ammamma” as she is affectionately called, at 71 will stump you with enthusiasm of a much younger person. Although she has her figurative plate full with menus and nutrition and age groups and stocking the pantry, she’s always on the lookout for newer ideas to make her kitchen healthier and happier. She keeps an open kitchen and an open mind – students are constantly consulted to get more ideas on designing the menu.
