I am a Canadian citizen, born in Pakistan and now I am residing in Qatar. My life has been about change and this has given me the ability to adapt to various situations that I have encountered. I grew up in a diverse country and now at NAISAK, I get to experience a similar diverse population of students and teachers. Having exposure to various cultures has enabled me to be appreciative and respectful of all cultures and backgrounds. We are all unique and we are wonderful in our own, separate ways.
The staff at NAISAK are committed to supporting the students’ growth and learning in every way possible. The school as a whole makes everyone feel welcome and valued. When I completed my internship here, I was made to feel a part of the school as a teacher and not as a learning teacher and that kind of support is something truly unique and cannot be found in every school.
My goal for my students this year is to have them feel happy to come to school every day and for them to feel safe within the classroom and the school. I want my students to be respectful of the differences among their peers and teachers. I also want the students to utilise their English language skills as much as possible in the classroom and outside the classroom so that they can further build on these skills.
I intend on creating activities that are engaging and interesting for the students as well as being challenging. I hope to create an environment in the classroom which
enables students to interact with each other thus helping each other’s development. There is a strong sense of community within the school environment and I hope to instill this within the classroom as well so that the students can be supported by their peers just as much as they are by the teacher.
I intend on communicating with parents through the students’ Communication Book and by providing my school contact information for you to get in touch with me whenever they have any questions or concerns regarding their child. I will try my best to keep parents informed of any positive or negative situations that may arise in the school or the classroom regarding their child and of course the parents can get in touch with me about any issues (at home) that they think may impact their child’s behaviour at school.
