Manjula Salomon was born in South India and educated in Britain and the United States. She has been involved with the International Baccalaureate since 1973 and first taught Theory of Knowledge in Iran in 1977. She then taught at the United Nations International School in New York, and since 1984 has been at Jakarta International School where she has "been lucky to be part of the TOK team with Vivek Bammi and Roger Brumby." She was appointed deputy chief assessor in September 2000, and is again a member of the curriculum review committee. She is grateful to the many teachers and students who have contributed to her TOK education, adding that "this continual journey is what TOK is about, and Forum offers a welcome resting place where one meets other sojourners." In 1999 she wrote two ESOL textbooks published by Longmans, but mostly she "fills her rice bowl by teaching IB History, advising students, and marking papers."
