Prity Shrestha Rajbhandary
PRITY SHRESTHA RAJBHANDARY is currently a master’s level student of Education Management at Kathmandu University, and is also a contributing writer for the Healthy Life magazine. She obtained her B.A. degree in Mass Communication from Mehr Chand Mahajan (MCM) College for Women in Chandigarh, India in 1998. Prior to her graduate studies, she was a Grade V teacher at the prestigious St. Xavier’s School in Jawalakhel, Lalitpur for three year. As a teacher, she felt that teachers play a very important role in making a positive difference in the lives of students, but they need to be in tune with the latest developments in teaching pedagogies and knowledge for them to be effective when dealing with their students. With that in mind, she worked for a couple of months with a non-governmental organization to give teachers’ training to public school teachers of remote Lubu and Nallu villages in Lalitpur, Nepal.
