Hello WikiEducator Community,
I am Shikha Raturi and currently living in Suva, Fiji (since May 2007).

I have been teaching Chemistry for over 20 years in different countries (taught highschool Chemistry for first 10 years and undergraduate Chemistry for next 10 years). I have experience in various curricula (highschool) as follows (i) GCE (London); GCSE (Cambridge) (ii) IB (Switzerland) (iii) Form 4, KCSE (Kenya) (iv) Year 11 &12, ACT (Australia) (v) Year 11 & 12, PNGHSC (Papua New Guinea) (vi) Year 11 & 12, AISSCE (India) (vii) Year 11 & 12 FSLC (Fiji). My current research interest is use of technology in formal and non-formal education.
I like travelling and meeting people from different backgrounds/ cultures, reading and listening to music. I am passionate about community oriented activites, a lot of it is through Soroptimist International (Soroptimist International (SI) is a world wide organisation for women in management and the professions working through service projects to advance human rights and the status of women.). I am proud to be a Soroptimist.
