“Teaching is first about learning,” -Dr. Kavita Lohiya Bajpai.

While in her childhood, Kavita wanted to be either a teacher, or wanted to serve in the Civil Services. Immediately while pursuing her graduation in the year 1998, Kavita got a call from Rani Laxmibai Public School in Jhansi to teach either Kindergarten students or to teach Maths and Physics to the 9th or 11th grade students—Kavita grabbed that opportunity and started teaching the higher grade students. In the year 2003 she got married and moved to Delhi NCR, and soon after that, in the year 2004, she moved to Ahmedabad —in Ahmedabad Kavita explored her love for history. She visited the pols of Ahmedabad and learned a lot about its culture and traditions, and here she met many people associated with the heritage city project and as Principal of a school she helped in formulating platforms and creating awareness about the rich heritage of Ahmedabad. Kavita staunchly believes that every school must have a separate heritage class where children are given insights into the native folklore, culture and traditions of the place that they are born and brought up in. She has been working (honorary) on Heritage conservation for the past twelve years now—she is prominently working on developing an awareness program for the kids age group of 8 to 14 years, so that these kids can understand -and- take pride in our rich and varied Indian heritage. And, her these efforts focus on: Connect the past with the present -to- secure a better future. In the year 2014 Kavita moved her base to Mumbai, Maharashtra, and in the year 2017 she started her own education venture in partnership by the name of KB EduVentures LLP -a network to provide education solutions. In the year 2019, Kavita joined as an Academic Director in ‘The International School of Thrissur’ -a child centric school which aims at ‘Providing children a safe and supportive environment that will allow them to reach their fullest potential’.

Kavita loves to write poetry, well; her other hobbies include photography, cooking, and playing the sitar. Kavita credits her friends, her mentors, and her husband as her biggest strengths. And as far as her personality goes, she defines herself as resilient, dependable and being a pace setter as her strengths. Kavita is grateful to her mother, who always encouraged her. She feels very proud when her specially-abled students do extremely well for themselves. In her bucket-list, she has two clear wishes: one- a noble and novel education institute and its establishments in prominent cities of India; and secondly, she wants to work more on conservation and promotion of our ancient heritage culture.

In her signing off message, Kavita says, “Today’s women should have a very strong character strength which is very important to one’s remarkable progress. Women should have clear thoughts about what they want to do, and they must use their adaptability quotient as their strength. And, women should be financially independent,”.
