Welcome to Mrs. Selvarajan's Class 

Second Grade teacher

Ms. Education, University of Bridgeport


I was born and brought up in India and I moved to the United States after getting my Bachelor’s degree in Nutrition and Dietetics. I am very blessed with a loving husband and two children. My son completed his M.B.A and works as a strategy consultant. My daughter graduated from college this summer. I also love playing with my dog Laddu, who turned 12 this summer  As I was raising my own two children I discovered my passion for teaching. Just as a Latin proverb says “By learning you will teach, by teaching you will learn”,

I became a teacher/ learner, determined not to be an information giver but to stimulate students to find their own passions and interests.


 This is my seventh year teaching at NBFA. At NBFA, educators and families partner to promote students’ social emotional and academic learning. We provide a welcoming, participatory and caring climate for learning. Our classroom climate respects individual interests, ideas, opinions and construction of meaningful knowledge. Students gain academic and social competence and become independent and interdependent learners to be successful in this rapidly changing world. 


I am  excited to work with you and your child this year ! With your partnership I expect to see great achievements!
