"We’ve known Mrs Balakrishnan since her teaching days at Forest North Elementary. She has always been a standout teacher and has forged and positively influenced hundreds of young minds. Several of her former students are in reputed colleges today, and owe their success to her teaching methods during their formative years. Happy to see that the next generation of kids will continue to gain from her.
