New Faces at Bhaktivedanta Academy

Dear Families,  

As you may know, we have been hiring for positions at Bhaktivedanta Academy for the last few months. We welcomed Haripriya as our upper elementary teacher’s assistant at the beginning of the school year and  wanted to give you an update on some other new faces you will see here soon.

Unfortunately, we will be saying goodbye to Markandeya in the next few weeks. He informed me at the end of last school year that he would be moving on to new adventures in Australia but agreed to stay on until we found a suitable replacement. He is not necessarily replaceable but we do feel we have hired another great person to take on the important role he leaves behind – Syama Allard. Syama is a recent graduate of the University of Florida and comes highly recommended by anyone who has had an opportunity to know and work with him. 

Syamasundari in our Krishna Sharanam class will be taking her maternity leave soon. In preparation for her absence, we have hired Krishna Lila Danka as her long-term substitute. Krishna Lila is not only a talented film maker, she is also very accomplished in other fields as well. She posses a Ph.D. in Comparative Literary Studies, is published, and has taught courses in media communications and Vaishnava literature. 

We are very happy to welcome both Syama and Krishna Lila as as part of the Bhaktivedanta Academy teaching and administrative teams. 

Yours in service,  

Visvambhara Dasa
Head of School
