    Description

    Greetings from Nepal.

    I am Aparna, an English Language Teacher in a government school in the Far-west of Nepal. I have been to the USA and stayed there for two months in a cultural exchange program. There I was hosted by an American family while my host university was Winthrop University, Rock Hills, South Carolina. I got an opportunity to make friends from twenty different countries. It was really a memorable experience for me. Since then I am excited to host people from all around the world. Nepal is rich in natural beauty and cultural heritage.

    My school has won International Schools Award, ISA from British Council. I was the coordinator and conducted ten different projects in collaboration with fifteen partner schools; Brazil, Japan, Afghanistan, England, Srilanka, India, Bangladesh, and so on.

    I am joint secretary of a teachers association. It is a nonprofit- volunteer platform for English Language Teachers. It conducts different training and professional development programs for English as a foreign language teachers.

    I have visited India many times to share my research work from a different platform. Recently, I am visiting Srilanka and Bangladesh to present my paper.

    I have a sweet home at Dhangadhi, where I live with my two children and a cat. Dhangadhi is a beautiful city near the hills. It is in the process of development. It is rich in cultural heritage. You can find diversity in culture, language, food, people, festivals, dance, and music here. Many languages are spoken and so many festivals are celebrated. It adds a unique taste to its culture. People are most often dressed according to the tribe they are. There is geographical diversity too. You can find plains, mountains, and hills here. You have a lot to do here, trekking, hiking, rafting, site seeing, forest safari, etc.

    Besides my job as a government school teacher, I also have my own Private Boarding School. The school is from Kindergarten to Grade 10. It is an English Medium school and even the first English Medium School in the Far-west of Nepal. It was established in 1983. We provide high-quality education, focusing on the full potential of the body, mind, and spirit. I need volunteers here at the school so that my students can exchange their culture, language, and food.

    You can also join me at my college. You can teach English, Science, and Mathematics to Grade 11, 12, and Bachelor Level Students. You can help us with graphic designs, animations, website, and social media updates too. We have a beautiful garden at the college, cafeteria, gym, basketball code, and Table-tennis. volleyball, and cricket teams who are playing national and international games. You can help us with sports too. We have HM and BHM classes too. You can help us teach hospitality, share cuisine recipes with us, and the general etiquette of your country. My students would love to meet you.

    See you soon,
