Preeti has been offering top-notch services in the field of education as an educator and social worker. With a mission to provide top-quality education to children, she has devoted her time and resources to ensuring that her vision becomes a reality.

Preeti Sogani is the director of Witty International School.

Born and brought up in Mumbai, Preeti belongs to a middle-class family. Her schooling and college education were done in Mumbai. She cherishes her childhood memories and had a good time with her family. Preeti was married to Deepen Sogani of Jaipur at an early age. They spent five years in Jaipur and then moved to Udaipur for business considerations. Preeti was free and had no intention of starting anything big. But her brother, Vinay Jain, who is the visionary founder of the Witty chain of schools, encouraged her to start the Udaipur branch of the school.

Preeti initiated her journey by establishing a small pre-primary wing of her school in 2002. Later, she embarked on a quest to acquire a larger piece of land for the establishment of a full-fledged senior secondary school. However, obtaining the land allocation from the UIT proved to be a significant challenge that she actively pursued.

After sustained efforts, she got a piece of land in 2008 and built a school there. Preeti started Witty International in 2009, which is currently a senior secondary school with all streams. Witty School is a value-based chain of ten schools in Mumbai, Udaipur, and elsewhere, and Preeti tries to give the students and parents the best of everything: education, ambience, technology, infrastructure, values, and cleanliness.

"Life is full of challenges," says Preeti, but with a positive attitude, you can overcome all hurdles. She says that running a school is quite a challenge as you have to handle the staff, students, and parents, but if you are committed to your work, you can manage all the problems efficiently. Preeti’s success mantra is hard work and no shortcuts. Besides, she believes that in life, there is no defeat for those who try.

Preeti also believes in teamwork. She knows that she cannot run the school alone. The administration of a school consists of so many people: the principal, teachers, admin staff, housekeeping staff, drivers, cleaners, gardeners, IT people, etc. She has to train everyone and impart her vision to everyone. Under her guidance, Witty promises the best.

Teamwork is very important in the management of a school. You have to bring along all your staff and co-workers. Preeti is happy that her students are everywhere in all fields. They are launching startups and even doing social work.

Preeti thinks she is not a natural-born leader. Slowly, her work taught her to interact with her co-workers and staff, and she evolved as a team player.

If Preeti were put into a time machine and taken back in time, she would study more. Although she would choose the education industry only because she likes the course her life has taken.

Preeti thinks that education is not only what one learns at school and college; it starts as soon as you are born. How much education you have inculcated in yourself is important.

When asked about her role models, Preeti says she considers her father her role model. She has inherited the habit of hard work from her father. She recalls how her father also did his business part-time after his job. She is also inspired by her brother, who is also a motivational speaker. Preeti draws guidance from her sister-in-law, Ms. Raina Jain, too. She says that her brother always pushed her to do things herself in order to build her confidence. Everyone in her family, including her husband and mother-in-law, always supported her.

For someone interested in the education industry, she advises a passionate understanding of the requirements of society. In her opinion, it is no longer possible to have a one-room school and then add to it one by one. Nowadays, you have to showcase your best from the first day. Tying up with a big chain always helps. You must have patience and passion to work with children.

When Preeti is not working, she spends most of her time with her seven-year-old son and talks to him about his activities during the day. She is also keen on cooking and likes to try new recipes. Preeti also loves talking to old school friends. She also does glass paintings.

Preeti is very active socially too. She has been an active member of the Rotary Club for the last several years. Currently, she is an assistant governor of zone 15 of district 3054 of Rotary International. Rotary members collect funds among themselves and work for the needy sections of society. She is also vice chairman of the ladies wing of the Jain International Trade Organization (JITO) Udaipur chapter. She is also chairperson of the Namokar Mantra Bank.
