I was associated with Al Khor International School for fifteen years. Working across domains like Special Needs, GCSE, IGCSE & A-Level curricula in Science and Mathematics from Year 7 to Year 12, I re-invented my teaching styles to suit performance needs and grew familiar with child psychology. Being associated with a multi-cultural school, that has over forty nationalities, I have evolved as a person and teacher and I have made many valuable parent-teacher relationships.
I am a genuine, fun-loving person with a strong work ethic and passionate about teaching Science. I am a mother of three, with my eldest child having completed her MBA, and my younger daughter studying in Year 11 and son in Year 8. I have always known that their favorite time with me would be discussing what unique project to present during Science exhibitions, re-doing an experiment from school at home or gardening and observing different types of plants grow. I have always told my children that “getting messy is good,” because identifying how to get out of it is what will teach them resilience.
The positive environment of NAISAK is tangible across the school and the clear direction provided by the Leadership Team brings confidence to our daily work.
The IGCSE term begins this year and my goal is to provide my students with a smooth transition into an area of interest that they may pursue as their careers. Along with academics, I intend to nurture my students in a way that allows them to go beyond ‘bookish’ knowledge into the manifestation of curiosity. I will design my classroom sessions in a way that inspires academic learning through social interaction. Moreover, to develop a child’s curiosity and bring out their creativity, I invest my imagination completely in ECAs.
I believe that teacher-parent communication is vital for a student to enjoy success at school. In the upper years, if a student is not making sufficient progress, I will discuss and inform parents about improvement strategies, and work together on our plan of action. I strive to raise students’ standards and achieve success by building a sense of community and strong partnership between home and school.
