Mrs. Deepa Shetty

As a committed participant of the education scenario for around two decades, I have come to realise that I have still miles to go...I started my career as a preschool teacher and loved every minute of it, eventually moving on to the Primary and then to Secondary teaching. I have also got myriad opportunities to work as a teacher, curriculum developer, HOD IGCSE academics, Vice Principal and finally Principal. Each and every role has sensitised me to the ever-changing role of an educationist as also the challenges faced by the children of today as against years ago. It is my endeavour to be a part of associations that work in a progressive manner towards making education relevant and meaningful. Keeping that view I would like to extend my cooperation towards your association so that I can contribute in the best way possible.
