Get to know: Ravina Midda

Ravina is our London School Maths Teacher, joining us at the beginning of this academic year. At the age of 25, after several years’ experience across retail, hospitality, and corporate work, she decided to fulfil her passion of wanting to help others by becoming a teacher. After qualifying she spent eight years as a primary school teacher, before coming across In Toto Ed’s website and social media – impressed by our drive to prepare young people for adulthood as part of their education, she made a career move to join our team.  


“In my 9 years of teaching I can say I’ve never seen anything quite like In Toto Ed! It’s special because the students are at the centre of everything we do. Not only are the students’ needs embraced and well looked after, but equally the staff are too." 


Ravina describes the London School team as “like a little family”, with lots of treats and laughter along the way! A cohesive and supportive team, everyone pulls together with genuine passion and determination to better the students’ lives. “It feels like I’m not going into work, I love it!” 


Along with teaching the vital STEM subject of Maths, Ravina brings a creative flair by combining her lessons with computing, cookery and art. This helps put the sometimes quite abstract subject of Maths into a more tangible context for our students - such as weighing ingredients to make bread - while also helping them prepare for adulthood by learning additional key skills.  


As In Toto Ed is a slightly different environment to her previous roles, Ravina has been tailoring and honing her teaching methods to better support our young people. Learning and understanding complex needs such as anxiety and sensory overload has led her to build self-regulation breaks into her lessons, allowing students a pause from study, and promoting a positive and more focussed learning environment.  


When asked what advice she would give her 16-year-old self, Ravina said “Quite simply, accept and embrace your uniqueness as it makes you, you. Secondly, your best is always MORE than good enough, as long as it’s your best. Thirdly, open uncomfortable doors, as that’s where the growth happens.” Fantastic advice, and some that Ravina clearly lives by – she intends to continue to grow in her professional development, deepening her knowledge of SEN and complex needs, and eventually training other teachers and schools in providing this support.  


A mum of two, in her spare time Ravina enjoys adventuring out into nature with her children, or curling up with a good book. Her favourite quote is “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” - Wayne Dyer. 


We’re thrilled to have you as part of our team Ravina, and can’t wait to see where your dreams take you.
